Steckle's Produce & Flowers

The greenhouses have become a sea of scent and colour by May. Annuals of every hue and growth habit line the aisles while hundreds of baskets sway overhead.

Beautify your outdoor living areas with plants grown at Steckle’s Produce & Flowers garden centre. Visit their farm market and experience the benefits of family farm fresh and the warmth of a personal connection that you can’t find in a supermarket setting. Steckle’s is small enough to care about the food they offer, because it is also what they feed their own family. Join them for their annual open house on the Friday and Saturday of the Mother’s Day weekend, serving coffee and butter tarts.

When the Steckle family started farming in 1992 as newly weds, they were continuing a family tradition of agriculture. Gradually their kitchen and flower gardens expanded. The hobby green house was replaced by larger greenhouses, and the vegetable garden moved out of the yard and into the farm fields. Their family has grown to include four children and one dog. Everyone is involved, with Melvin managing the crop rotation, soil and animal nutrition side of things while Joanna is in charge of the garden centre and farm market. Their children work with them gaining valuable experience and fostering an awareness of nature. Their goal is to preserve the values of the faith, family and good stewardship for the following generations.

C&M Seeds, founded in 1978, introduced hard red winter wheat to Ontario and is the leading supplier of wheat seed in eastern Canada.

In 1983, Palmerston Grain, a large scale grain elevator, opened and has continually invested in its facilities, technology, and people, currently boasting 2.1 million bushels in storage capacity.
