Fresh, Organic Tomatoes

You will never want to eat a tomato sold in a grocery store once you have tasted our tomatoes.....

We grow our heritage red, field tomatoes in our greenhouse so that you can enjoy real tomatoes early in the season. We hope to have fresh, hand picked tomatoes from our vines until beyond the end of October.

We also grow heritage  orange and yellow large tomatoes.  They have a milder taste and lower acidic content.  Added to our selection of heirloom tomatoes is our dark purple Black Prince and yellow with an orange shoulder Pineapple tomato.  They look very different but taste amazing.

As well we grow red, yellow and orange cherry tomatoes. New is our chocolate cherry tomatoes.   Great for snacking on and easy to pop in your mouth as you are traveling.  'Cherry tomatoes are so sweet they taste like candy!'

Pies, Cookies and Squares

Our Specialty Pies

In our market we have delicious 10 inch fruit pies come from Nova Scotia. They come in many different flavours including apple, apple crumble and apple struesel, strawberry-rhubarb, raspberry, blueberry, mixed fruit.  We have prebaked pumpkin pies as well.

Our pies are frozen, but easy to bake and enjoy at home.  This is what you do-- preheat oven to 450 degrees, put frozen pie in for 10 minutes.  Turn oven temperature down to 350 degrees and bake for another 60 minutes.  Take out and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.  Pumpkin pies just need warming up before eating.

Add one of our pies and Kawartha Dairy ice cream as dessert to compliment your RTBF turkey.

Giant Cookies

What a great snack!  Would you choose ginger molasses, chocolate chip, nutella or oatmeal butterscotch to eat.  These are just a few of the kinds to choose from.  Made locally at Circles And Squares, a division of Baxter Kitchens, one is just not enough.

Squares and Loaves

Laurie's squares are a marvelous treat!  There is nothing like her date squares or chocolate peanut butter rice crispies squares.  Again, they are big enough to share but will that happen?  Once you taste it you'll want it all for yourself!

Laurie's loaves are made with many -good for you- ingredients and are made with our own zucchini or pumpkins.  They are brought in fresh baked and are quickly bought by customers!  Serve with coffee, sliced with butter or even warmed up and eaten with ice cream or whip cream they are a lovely treat to share.
