WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
The Janssens Farm, family-owned and operated, was founded in 1984. We are well known for our high quality fruits and vegetables grown at our farm which is located in Appin, Ontario which is 40 minutes from London, ON, 50 minutes from Sarnia, ON, 1 hour and 40 minutes from Windsor, ON and 2 hours and 15 minutes from Toronto, ON.
We currently grow over 45 different fruits and vegetables! In addition to growing all these vegetables, we attend several farmers markets during the summer months to market our crops. We are always looking for new ways to improve the quality of our fruits and vegetables, so in 2010, we constructed 1.3 acres of high tunnels. This has vastly improved the quality of our produce, lowered the use of pesticides, increased our yields, nutritional value of our crops and increased the flavor of the crops we grow! Quality and service is our motto. We not only try to meet, but we strive to exceed the expectations of our customers.
