Our Family Farm
At Howe Family Farms we love flavor and we love variety, which is why we love to experiment with numerous varieties of each crop on our Ontario farm. The flavor profile can change so much from variety to variety whether its a tomato, strawberry, watermelon, squash… anything really.
We Love this Farm
Our Produce Is Delicious
Each year we seem to go a little bit overboard by planting an insane amount of different varieties. The fruits and vegetables we grow are like children to us… and like children, they can sometimes be a bit of a headache to raise. We grow strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkin, squash, tomatoes, peppers, kale, okra, eggplant, zucchini, lettuce, herbs, beans, peas, and sweet corn.
That’s 16 kids! Out of those 16 kids we like to plant multiple varieties; those are the characteristics of each child. Like a parent, we reward the good characteristics (ie flavor, appearance, quality) and discipline the negative characteristics (ie bitterness, poor shelf-life etc). However, it’s difficult since everyone’s taste buds are different, but we do our best to please our customers!
Howe's Farm Market & Country Bakery
Howe’s Farm Market and Country Bakery will be our second location, and we are extremely excited to serve more customers! Not only will we carry our delicious and farm fresh produce from our Aylmer, Ontario farm, we will also have delicious baked goods for sale!
We couldn’t ask for a better piece of land for our wonderful Ontario farm! Just a bit outside of London in Aylmer, Ontario is our family farm. With the warm, humid days and cool nights, it’s the perfect place to grow our delicious produce.
Our farm market and country bakery is just down the road in St. Thomas. You can find the best produce money can buy at either location.
We are growers of wonderful Ontario: strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon, pumpkins and countless other fruits and vegetables. Striving to supply our local community with the the most abundant variety and the freshest fruits and vegetables is our mission. For this reason, We are advocates on the importance of eating local, and supporting local. Which, is why we only stock fruits and vegetables grown by ourselves or by trusted neighbors.
The Howe family has been farming in Elgin County since 1861. However, we still strive to bring new excitement to the farm and market each and every season! Family means everything to us, and that love transfers to our produce. You can really tell the difference in fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown with love; they just taste better! Consequently, we like to treat all our customers like they’re family to keep the love all the way to the table.
