Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I buy your vegetables?
You can routinely find our products at Metro, Food Basics, Sobeys, Freshco, Foodland, Longo’s, Giant Tiger and many independent retailers. We also service wholesale and food service customers.
Can I buy direct from the farm?
We do not offer retail farm gate sales but if you are interested in wholesale business, please Contact Us.
Why does your bag say "Product of Mexico" or "USA"?
Although we have invested heavily in long-term storage facilities, we still rely heavily on our long term partnerships in Mexico and the USA to supply products to Canadians year-round. Click to view our Seasonal Availability.
What should I do if the product I purchased is not the quality I expected?
If the product is not up to your standards, return the product in its original packaging along with the receipt back to the retail store that you purchased it from.
What is used to wash the vegetables?
We use potable water to rinse our vegetables, but to ensure added cleanliness we use a natural ozone system, as opposed to added chemicals.
Are your products genetically modified?
No, all of our vegetables are non-GMO.
Do you grow any organic vegetables?
We do not grow any organic produce although we do take extra steps to minimize our impact on the environment. For example, we use natural compost to improve crop yields and to provide a more organic source of nutrients for the soil. A commitment to crop rotation also helps us to naturally prevent pest issues and soil nutrient depletion.
Should I wash my produce again before eating or cooking it?
Yes, although we do wash our produce it is recommended that our carrots, beets, parsnips and potatoes be washed prior to consumption. Wash vegetables thoroughly under fresh, cool, running water and use a clean produce brush to scrub. Onions do not need to be washed before use, primarily because the outer skin is peeled away and removed before consumption. For more tips, visit Produce Safety on Canada.ca.
How should I store my produce?
Carrots, Beets, and Parsnips
Store in the original packaging inside the vegetable crisper in your refrigerator.
Store in a cool, dry, and well ventilated location, away from bright light.
Avoid storing onions next to potatoes, as the increased moisture can cause onions to spoil more quickly.
Store in a cool, dark, and well ventilated location.
