855 Line 1 Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada

Our new greenhouse production for 2021 allows Front Step Farms, Inc. to begin 52 week a year production of local food. The goal of having all 4 acres of greenhouse structures in weekly, seasonal or extended season production within three years will be with locally based employees.
We can't do it all ourselves so we are leveraging our extensive farm network.
Our fields will be planted with new small fruit, stone fruit crops and vineyards beginning in 2022/23 by working closely together with several like minded farmers we have known for many years.

1126 Line 8 Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada

We are utilizing space located here for propagation, growing space, lab, heat room and cooler space to enable ourselves time to design and build the needed infrastructure at 855 Line 1.

11490 Bathurst Street and other Vaughan farms.

Our home farm for the near future will convert into two main crops being garlic and small fruit. Our retail will continue to operate at this site for now and will be one of the locations for the Weekly Box Program.

Our Mission:

Front Step Farms, Inc. to produce products in a viable way.

How We Grow:

We embrace cultural techniques that we can rely upon as farmers to be viable.  We employ traditional conventional farming, organic practices and pesticide free techniques.  We are not certified organic or make any claims to be, we will inform you of any methods used to produce products from our farm.

Our History:

We have a long family tradition of farming in Ontario, Canada dating back to the early 1800’s when our ancestors migrated from United States after briefly settling there from Scotland.  Many different crops and livestock have been produced over the last nearly 200 years by the previous five generations, today we continue on as the sixth.  The diversity of our family experience in farming has enabled us to provide to others fruit, vegetables, meat, flowers and other specialty products derived from our production.  Now in the year 2020 we are changing our focus of what we produce, how we produce and where we produce products that our valued customers can use to sustain and improve their health.

Our gratitude for taking the time to learn about us.

M.J. Watson, 6th Generation Ontario Farmer
