Proudly feeding our little corner of Ontario, Canada: Picton, Belleville, Napanee, Trenton and Toronto's Junction, Annex and Danforth Neighbourhoods.
We have been growing vegetables on six acres in Prince Edward County since 2012. We feed over 150 farm share families with summer and winter vegetable baskets as well as our farmers' market customers. We are inspired by small scale organic agriculture. We work to ensure that our farming practices promote biodiversity, rebuild soils, and help you enjoy tasty veggies!
Feeding you is our way of making the world a better place, one sweet carrot at a time.

Fiddlehead Farm runs a summer and winter veggie program with different size options to keep you and your family well fed nine months of the year. We grow your veggies on our farm, harvest them fresh, and customize your box before delivering to Picton, Belleville, Napanee, Trenton and several areas in Toronto: Junction, Annex, and Danforth. In the summer we offer weekly boxes from late June through October in either small or regular size. In November we switch to monthly boxes until March which come in small or regular to suit your household.
We love our "CSA" or community supported agriculture program because it gives you the guaranteed best pick of our garden and reduces waste as we custom harvest just for you. By committing to a season of vegetables, we're able to plan accordingly and focus on growing the vegetables (what we love to do). We use Harvie, a web-portal that simplifies our relationship and gives you full customization options for your box. Harvie allows you to log in and swap any items in your box or switch your delivery location or date to adapt to your schedule. There’s a convenient payment plan and registration is ongoing so you’re never too late to sign up! You can find the full details on our Harvie sign-up page.

You don't get good vegetables without good planning and good help. It all starts with Stephanie and Heather, partners in life and business. As a small crew, everyone gets to try their hand at nearly everything. Most of the time you'll find everyone working up an appetite together in the fields,.
From left to right: Heather, Steph, Valerie, Marina, Adriana, Kelly, Fergus (the dog)... and Rebekah who didn't make it in that day. It's hard to catch us all together as there's a mix of part and full timers. Here we're all smiles as we had just put the roof on our new greenhouse!
Steph’s creativity shines with a pen and paper as she jots out detailed plans for building new vegetable storage units in our old barns. She is our crop planner, harvest coordinator, fertility manager, tractor mechanic, builder and jokester. She's at the Junction Market every Saturday.
Heather loves writing newsletters and finding creatures in the fields (except when they're eating vegetables). She's our field manager and resident ecology, HR, finance, and marketing departments. You'll find her at the Belleville and Bloor market stalls every week.
We also like to get involved... you'll find us active within the National Farmers Union, the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario and the Belleville Farmers’ Market Association. We believe in helping to build the farming communities through which we network and learn!
