Welcome To TJ's Farm Fresh - We Grow It All Right Here
OPENING JULY 20TH, 2012
The 2012 produce season is almost here. The corn is looking great, the onions and garlic are coming on strong. We are looking forward to seeing our customers and another great summer of better tasting local food.
We are the Beirnes Family. We have been farming all of our lives; so did our parents, and so did their parents. The farm on Kossuth Road has been an active mixed farm for over a hundred years.
So it just stands to reason that WE as a farming family, know what grows well and tastes good in this part of the country. One thing is for sure, when food is picked daily, it simply tastes better than food that was transported across the province, continent or even further. And these days there's more to consider than just taste. Food that's picked up at the farm gate is also good for the environment too.
There are many reasons for buying your fresh produce from T.J.'s...But what our customers say is: "It Just Tastes Better!"
Why not discover the benefits of "Farm Fresh" with your family and friends.
Our Gourmet Sweet Corn
Bend an ear and we'll tell you why you should buy your sweet corn from us.
This year T.J.'s will feature 10 different varieties of gourmet sweet corn. Gourmet is more of an urban expression but it's another way of saying "we really like it a lot ourselves" to a ruralite.
The corn you buy in the store doesn't change much. But there really are a lot of great tasting--different tasting--varieties of corn to enjoy. Each one has their unique sweetness and lip-smacking taste. Come back often this summer and try some out our varietal diversity in cornology. You'll be glad you did.
Our Garlic Is Wonderful To Cook With
Some of our customers say that T.J.'s grows the best garlic around and that makes us proud. We know that it's good because we use it ourselves...and you'll have to try it to see why people keep coming back for it.
Garlic shouldn't be dry. It should be sticky when you slice it or crush it and ours certainly is that. Whether it's ceasar salad or stir-fry, Italian or greek or Indian having really fresh garlic makes all the difference in the world. If what you're making is special try our fail-proof bulbs of garlic by T.J.'s.
Our Onions: Yellow, White or Red
You can buy our onions by the bag or individually (bet you can't buy just one though...)
No matter which colour you prefer, T.J.'s onions are juicy. Imagine that. Once you've tried them you will definitely re-think onions, for more and more things that you prepare.
They are perfect for everything you're planning: fried onions, baked, french onion soup, or home made onion rings.
Tomatoes, Potatoes And Squash
Potatoes dug-up fresh, tomatoes picked fresh and squash of many varieties all taste best when they are minutes from the field.
Tomatoes are happening now (August 1st). Potatoes are too,and they keep well if you store them properly. Our squash will be coming on strong in September.
Award Winning Honey
The honey from T.J.'s Farm has been Champion at the Royal Agricultural WInter Fair many times. This is a great honour...however the bees and the flowers and the clover really deserve all the credit. When you're picking up produce why not taste the difference award-winning honey makes on scones, and toast, on cereal. Our honey hasn't been shipped or stored in a warehouse somewhere. It's fresh from right here.
Eat Well Locally
Try all of our other great crops too: Beans, Beets, Peppers, Pumpkins, Flowers, and many varieities of Squash.
Come and taste the difference that T.J.'s Farm Fresh can make for your family at meal time.
It's Our Livelihood...It's Your Life.
Eat Better. Eat Fresh. Eat T.J.'s.
10am to 6pm daily mid July to October 31
