A little drive for a lot of country!
Forsythe Family Farms 2009 Inc. is owned and operated by Jim and Leslie Forsythe. Jim has been growing for the GTA in York Region for over 41 years, beginning in Markham in 1972 with cash crops. He then switched to growing and marketing fresh fruits and vegetables selling directly to the public through an outdoor market and pick your own at 14th and McCowan Rd.
Due to development, they relocated in 1986 to their Kennedy Road location where, along with their on-farm market and pick your own, they became well known as a fun family destination and offered school tours and birthday parties.
In 1997 they purchased a farm in Durham Region and for a number of years, farmed both properties. When their lease on the Kennedy Road location was terminated, they moved everything to their Durham Region farm in Greenbank, and we sure are glad they’re here!
In addition to their on-farm market and all of the fun activities they offer, they also started “The Giving Garden”, a 1.5 acre plot on their farm dedicated to growing and harvesting food to gift to hungry families. Families, individuals, groups, corporations are all welcome to come and participate in the garden by helping plant, maintain and harvest the crops growing.
So make sure to stop by and have a fun day on the farm learning about agriculture and where your food comes from!
