Pfenning's Organic Farm is a grower/packer/shipper of certified organic produce. At Pfennings, we take a holistic approach to sustainability, and we practice organic concepts both in business and our personal lives.
Our farm is nestled in a curve of the Nith River just outside Baden, Ontario, providing us with a peaceful setting in which to raise our children. We think "local first" and focus on family and community building. From that starting point, we develop market relationships where mutual respect is the foundation. Our staff, including Jamaican migrant workers, are not only employees, but neighbours and friends. The vegetables we grow are packed on our farm and sold in stores around our region and across the province. We provide an unbroken chain of traceability and responsibility from field to fork, and we offer a reliable standard for our customers. While our focus is local production first, we also import off-season and tropical products to round out our line-up and be able to offer quality product year round.
At Pfenning's we understand that education is key, and we are constantly learning and sharing what we learn with others. Our form of agriculture is the science and art of organics and we have practiced it here in Canada since 1981. Although our family business spans three generations, our organic history started long before that in Europe. Organic agriculture as we practice it works to manage the nutrient balance in the soil to achieve optimum plant health, which in turn provides the right balance of nutrients in the foods we harvest. Our philosophy is that balance in the soil brings balance in the food and ultimately improving the health of the people eating it.
We invite you to visit us at the farm. Look for our products at the Pfennings Organic and More store in St. Agatha, at Eating Well Organically and at other fine retailers and restaurants.
