Pfenning's Organic Veggies & Fruits
Every week we receive a fresh shipment from Pfenning's Organics, a third generation family farm that grows, packs and distributes organic produce across the province. They have been in business since 1981 and have 700 acres of organic vegetables and fruits near New Hamburg, Ontario.
Also, when you buy local, organic foods you’re supporting our natural farming heritage and economy, instead of giving your money to international, Big Ag and Big Food.
Please scroll through the picture gallery to see a sample of some of the items available, and scroll down to see a list of just some of the items you might see when you walk into our Listowel or Fergus stores.

IS A CARROT JUST A CARROT?
We all know the importance of eating our veggies, but they are not all created equal! More and more “foods” are a GMO (genetically modified organism), laced with toxins and pesticides. Do we really want all that “stuff” in our veggies, and in our body?
Organic agriculture sustains and enhances the health of the soil, plants, animals, humans and the planet. This is a different process than farming with chemicals and GMO’s, but in the long-term it is worth it for all of us!
But how do you really know it’s organic? That’s why it’s good to know your grower, because it’s all about trust. Having a local family-owned business, like Pfenning’s Organics in New Hamburg, ON since 1981, is ideal.
