Hand Grading Sweet Corn

Our History

The Welsh family immigrated to Canada back in 1855 from Scotland. Robert Welsh settled in the Scotland, Ontario area where he began the family farm.

Premium sweet corn has been the dominant crop grown in our family since the 1930's. It has been close to our hearts ever since. Back then, we drove the corn every week into the Hamilton Farmers Market. In 1954 our family started selling corn at the Ontario Food Terminal, the first year the Terminal opened. This is still how we sell our corn to this day with additional sales directly from the family farm.

In 1989 we also started producing asparagus which is also sold at the Ontario Food Terminal every spring. Generational family farms seem to be dwindling in present years but farming is part of our heritage, and growing premium quality vegetables is something we want to continue to do for many years to come.
