About Us

Our Mission:

Front Step Farms Inc. aims to grow healthy food that is both safe and affordable for every Canadian.

How We Grow:

The soil contributes to the health of the food, and the food determines the outcome of our own existence. This philosophy drives the motivation behind Front Step Farms daily projects and yearly goals.  We grow ingredients that are viable for our community supported agriculture program, while still aiming to support other local farmers in the community that share the farm’s values and mindset. Every effort is made with regards to transparency and source of production when speaking of all crops and value added products.  Front Step Farms separates itself from the rest of the farming community by being objective growers. Value is placed on logic more than personal feelings surrounding “food philosophy” within our growing efforts. We grow food and use practices that, both us as farmers, and the public as consumers, can agree is safe, sound, and smart. We don’t believe in the superiority of conventional or organic culture, when comparing organic food and conventional food.

Our History:

Our farm was started on a humble note of passion and a love for the land. Co-founders Sukyi and Michael obtained some land in Vaughan and manually planted a pumpkin patch for retail sales. The reception towards the pumpkin patch was warm and welcoming, with ample support from the community.  Michael and Sukyi progressed over the course of the next 4 farm seasons, working hard to grow different crops, while responding to community demand for great produce. A new sense of determination, vision and opportunity lead to transition farm operations to Bathurst Street, from Dufferin Street. The original Dufferin farm continued to grow crops like corn and pumpkins, while diversification of farm production started to initiate on Bathurst. Customers within the neighboring communities flocked to fresh new crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, raspberries and herbs. Shortly after, Sukyi and Michael replanted part of themselves in their hometown of Niagara on the lake by starting the cultivation of fruit like peaches, pears, plums, and apples.
