About Us

Family PhotoJerry and Susan Veens along with their teenage children Rachel and Nicholas own and operate the 150 acre farm. 150 acres includes many varieties of apples, 15 acres of squash, 5 acres of pears and the rest is bush land. It was purchased from his parents, Gerry and Irene in 2007 after they had owned it for over 40 years.

August to October is our harvest season when our dedicated employees are busy getting the crop off. From there we have C/A rooms (controlled atmosphere) that contain many bins of apples throughout our packing season.

We grow, pack and ship produce to local grocery stores in the G.T.A area, Hamilton, Niagara Falls and London Ontario from August until supplies last which is typically spring time.

We have done many changes over the years that include the construction of a new facility to pack apples in and planting new trees.
