Local Goes a Long Way

It’s no secret that I love local. In fact, I’m biased towards locally grown and produced food. My family is a mix of Ontario flower growers and Ontario farmers. I know first-hand the care, love, effort and professionalism that go into our locally grown food in Ontario.

Truly, “good things grow in Ontario.”
