Canada 150

At Castle Kilbride, on August 1, at the Kitchener Conestoga CANADA 150 Celebration, hosted by Harold Albrecht, MP and Michael Harris, MPP,  our business was honored for our contribution to Agriculture.  We began farming our Erb Street farm in 1858, when our ancestor Peter Herrle, settled here. The ceremony was a well organized tribute to 150 individuals in Kitchener Conestoga who have contributed to our region and our nation.

OPEN Thanksgiving weekend

Our Farm Market will be open all of Thanksgiving Weekend, including Monday October 9 from 9-5.

You can order ahead your turkey, pies and baking.



Our own Sweet Corn!

We are now exclusively picking our own sweet corn!

Our PYO strawberry fields are closed for the season.

We have been growing strawberries for 21 years, and in that time, we have never had such intermittent opening and closings of our PYO patch. Our apologies to those who may have wished to pick, and were not able to. Our PYO fields yielded significantly less fruit than normal, due to a cold and wet, spring and summer, and plants that did not look hearty last season when we originally planted them.

The plants we planted this year, for next year’s harvest are healthy, so we are hopeful for a good crop again next year.


We are open Monday to Friday 8-7, Saturday 8-6 and Sunday 9-6.
