Aldergrove Farm

Fresh, local organic vegetables and cut flowers

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 2020 we are going into our fifth season as full-time market gardeners. 

We are committed to growing organically and ecologically. We practice a style of farming known as “intensive market gardening”. 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 and accessible. Of the 75 acres of land we currently steward, less than 2% is in production. 

Find us at one of our farmers’ markets from May to November.

 

We acknowledge that the land on which we farm is the traditional territory of the Annishnaabek Nation: the People of the Three Fires known as Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and then Cheppewas of Nawash, now known as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
