Sunshine Farms is a mostly organic farm in Thamesville. They produce 24 types of pickled vegetables, 11 of which are organic.
Regardless of the veggie you choose you will enjoy the crispy treats straight from the jar.
My faves are the Fiery Baby Dills and Zesty Pickled Asparagus (shown below). I also enjoy the organic beets with their earthy taste that reminds me of the beets we would have from my grandma’s garden as kids.
I get my Sunshine pickles from Sanson Estate Winery in McGregor ($6.95 for the 500mL) but you can contact the farm directly to find a supplier nearest you.

Visit Tredki Acres in Harrow for your pumpkins this year. They also have a maze designed for kids from JK to Grade 3 and hay rides. The farm uses absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides etc., but is not certified as organic. The owners believe in traditional (old school) farming practices. Click HERE for their flyer.
