Canada didn’t become and stay the land of the free without great sacrifices during war. The great wars forever changed the lives of so many, and the battle for freedom continues to this day. Today and every day we thank those who sacrificed everything for our country.
Here’s a small historical fact about our farm that you may not know. We often cite that our farm has been in operation since 1943, and this is directly related to WWII. Don Thompson completed basic training in Newmarket in 1943 and was then placed in the reserves. He was told that his talents were better used in Canada feeding people instead of going overseas. So he planted a few acres of potatoes and here we are 80 years later still growing potatoes.
