Tim and Libby Barrie invite you to visit their 122-acre farm just north of the 401, east of New Dundee. Approximately 35 acres of their farm are devoted to asparagus and one full acre to rhubarb. What makes this Barrie's unique is the fact that 99% of their sales are farmgate, all taking place within the intense 40-day harvest in mid spring. During this time thousands of families flock to the farm to purchase the delicious, tender spears.
Because aparagus growing is so labour intensive, all 35 acres need to be picked daily. This means that customers get the very freshest produce. During the season, many local restaurants and maket vendors also purchase from Barrie's.
In 2009, Barries expanded into a year-round operation offering seasonal produce, Barrie Bros. soups, preserves, honey, jam and a selection of frozen meat products from Oakridge Acres. In 2010, Barrie's expanded their product line to include local crackers, soups, tortilla chips, pasta and gluten free pies. Fresh baked bread is offered on Fridays.
Specialty products: Asparagus chips and 30 other asparagus products. Barrie's also sells Spuds Finest All Ontario Kettle Chips!
