Samsara Fields Organic Farm (ORGANIC green beans) - Waterford, ON

Samsara Fields was conceived by JP Gural and So Young Lee from 2010, after their global research journey conducted in 2008 - 2009, as a response to our planet's peril. They both experienced many issues: poverty, displacement, refugees, the world food crisis, slums, garbage dump communities, post-conflict, legacies of war, poverty, sprawling urbanisation, globalisation, development, and global climate change. From their research, they found organic living to be not an alternative lifestyle choice but an important direction if humanity wants to survive an impending environmental collapse. One of the key ingredients for sustainable living is good quality, locally-produced food.An organic choice protects the Earth and our Health. More about their farm.

Barth Farms (pickling cucumbers) - Simcoe, ON

Magalas Farm (zucchini) - Waterford, ON

Harry and Helen Magalas established the starting grounds for Magalas Produce Ltd. A 50-acre farm devoted to raising 150 laying hens and four cows. Vegetable production soon followed as with attending the Hagersville Market every Wednesday afternoon. The Magalas’ soon gained contracts with E.D. Smith in Winona and Campbell Soup in Toronto. They grew cucumbers, strawberries and tomatoes (roma and cannery) until the 1980’s the canneries closed down the contracts for Ontario farmers. The farm's focus was switched to fresh vegetables. In 1994 Martin and his wife Cheryl solely took over Magalas Produce Ltd. and expanded the fresh fruit and vegetable production to include strawberries, zucchini, melon (cantaloupe), sweet corn, tomatoes and roma tomatoes.
