Unique cultural heritage isn’t always found in buildings or historic sites. Vicki’s Veggies is a certified organic farm in Prince Edward County dedicated not only to farming naturally and organically, but to reintroducing heirloom varieties to the general public.
With increased interest in heirloom vegetables, Vicki’s produce is sold at their General Store at the farm (run on the honour system) as well as markets in Toronto and Prince Edward County. They also provide produce to many of the top restaurants in Toronto and the County. In 2005 they won an Ontario Premier’s Award for Agri-food Innovation Excellence.
Vicki herself comes from a long tradition of agriculture in the County. She grew up on a farm less than ten minutes from where she now farms, and is both carrying on the traditions she grew up with, as well as creating a few of her own.
