Loblaw’s Grown Close To Home

By November 5, 2012Events, Media

It has been our pleasure to be recent participants in Loblaw’s Grown Close To Home events at Zehrs grocery stores around the GTA and Barrie. We enjoyed the chance to meet with our customers and to help raise awareness about buying local produce. Visiting six different grocery stores, we were able to get many of the key people from our farm involved– our plant manager, our farm manager, and three generations of our owners.

We believe it is important for consumers to learn where their food comes from and are glad to see a growing interest in produce grown right here in Ontario, by a family-run farm. Consumer activism has been a driving force in the local food movement, and it was wonderful to be in the grocery stores thanking and interacting with those consumers.
