Aldergrove Farm

Fresh, local organic vegetables and cut flowers

Thank you for visiting our page!

We are a small family organic market garden specializing in high-quality produce and cut flowers. We sell at two farmers markets in Toronto (Trinity Bellwoods Farmers’ Market on Tuesday afternoons and Dufferin Grove Farmers’ Market on Thursday afternoons).

Our farm is run by Michael Fraser and Glynis MacLeod with help from our seasonal staff. As of 2019 we are going into our fourth season as full-time market gardeners! With the arrival of our second child, life here is busy but it’s worth every second.

We are committed to growing ecologically and sustainability and practice a style of farming known as “intensive market gardening” made popular by Quebec farmer Jean-Martin Fortier and New York farmer Conor Crickmore. Our low-till permanent bed system encourages healthy soil, decreased reliance on tractors and fossil fuels, higher yields per acre and decreased weed pressure. Farming intensively allows us to grow more on less land, employ ethical labour practices, produce high-quality produce and cut flowers while keeping prices at market affordable!

Find us at one of our farmers’ markets from May to October!
