ABOUT FAIRFIELDS

Providing the highest quality crops

Fair Fields is a family-run market gardening operation located on a scenic farm near Neustadt, ON. We grow asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries and sweet corn, and are exploring fall crops for future years.  We also keep bees.  Most of our crops are available for retail and wholesale and the strawberries are also u-pick.

At Fair Fields we aim to provide fresh, healthy and delicious produce.  Our farming practices improve the health of the soil and the neighbouring woods, springs and pond.  In future years, we plan to use draft horses for field power and soil fertility. Fair Fields is in the process of certifying and we hope to be certified organic by June 2021. We are also reducing tillage and improving edge habitat for beneficial insects, pollinators and birds. In future years we will stop farming some of our most marginal and unproductive lands and instead transition these areas into wildflower meadows and grasslands.“

We believe everyone should have a connection with their food and trusting relationship with the farmers who produce it.  This is why we welcome u-pick and wholesale customers to visit the farm and learn more about how we produce food.

Fair Fields owner and principal farmer, Devan Penney, learned organic production methods working at Everdale Organic Farm and Orchard Hill Farm (where he worked with draft horses), and through volunteering at farms in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Spain and Italy.

Devan is aided on the farm by his partner Nicole, their parents, his uncle Jim, beekeeper Chris Gore and hopefully soon by their daughters Lilly and Fiona! There are also seasonal employees and various volunteers throughout the year, whose help is invaluable.

Last summer, we trialled 7 different varieties of organic sweet corn seed. It was a wonderful experience, especially the taste testing, and we were amazed at how different some of the varieties were in growth, appearance, and flavour. Of the 7, we have chosen 4 varieties and we will try out more this coming year.
