We take pride in our gardens,
and invite you to wander through them
at our home location

It is reported that the best nutrients come by eating vegetables in multiple colors, and the fresher, the better to boost our vitality. At Veggie Trail we are pleased to report that we have all spectrum’s  of the rainbow growing in our gardens. It is also our philosophy not to use chemical fertilizers or pesticides, choosing instead to use a mixture of compost and a lot of elbow grease to enhance the nutritional value of the produce we grow.

In 2018 we had a very tasty year with 150 varieties of Tomatoes In 2019 we have increased that number to approximately 170, which includes regular BIG red beefsteaks for the sandwich lovers, along with oxhearts & determinate Italian varieties to meet the demand for canning tomatoes.

New vegetables for 2019: Include beets, carrots, pink Chinese celery, brocolinni, spinach & Swiss chard, 4 varieties of cabbage, white & Spanish onions, and last but not least, dry cooking beans. Kidney, black, saddle, soldier & pink lady will be harvested late in the season for use during the winter months. We have also partnered up with Maple Hill Farms to provide Sorghum (a tasty, high protein, gluten free grain), and a few other surprises that are still in the works.

Returning vegetables for 2019: Include 8 types Egg Plants, 20 varieties of Sweet Peppers & 10 types of Hot Peppers, Peas & Beans, Kale, Brussel Sprouts, and so many Summer & Winter squashes it will make your eyes pop. 8 Varieties of potato. Fresh Garlic & Herbs which includes Basil, Parsley, Dill, Thyme, Winter Savory, Rosemary,  Mint, Chive, Lavage and Horseradish (which should be ready for harvest this year.)

In fruit we have Rhubarb, Black Raspberries, Yellow Raspberries & Black Berries, and Cape Gooseberries.

Yes, it’s a lot of produce, and it will be a handful to manage.

For the vegetables not listed, we depend on a network of local farms to fill in the gaps. We bring in local Strawberries from the beginning of June all the way to October, along with Red Raspberries from July to October. Wild & Domestic Blueberries from July to September. We also have a driver that goes to the Niagara Region 3 times per week to bring back tree-ripened fruits as they come into season: Cherries, Plums, Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines, and Pears. Corn starts the middle of July and is brought in fresh-picked each morning until the first hard frost. There is an organic grower who backs us up with Carrots & Beets, and a regular supply of Onions, Potatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflower. All the salad fixings you could imagine throughout the entire growing season.
