Keep updated on all that is happening around Thiessen Farms!


Thiessen Farms (est.1948) run by 3rd generation farmer Amy Thiessen together with her parents Ron & Lorie, is a small family farm growing vegetables, herbs, flowers & blackberries.

Our goal is to grow healthy produce that tastes great – and looks great too!

Healthy produce comes from healthy soil. The use of compost & manure, cover crops, green manure, mulching, crop rotation & companion planting are ways we maintain & improve our soils.

We love colour & we love variety!

On our farm we grow more than 80 kinds of tomatoes – from old heirlooms to modern hybrids in all sizes, shapes & colours, along with 15 varieties of eggplant, 30 kinds of hot peppers, 15 sweet peppers, more than 15 kinds of squash …

In total almost 400 varieties of at least 40 different vegetables are grown plus herbs, edible flowers and cut sunflowers.

We market our produce seasonally through our CSA (community supported agriculture) program, and at the Downtown Georgetown Farmers’ Market in Georgetown on Saturday mornings.

  1. Hi Ron and Amy. You have been on my mind a lot in the past 6 weeks, wondering how you will cope with the upheaval in your usual ways of getting your wonderful produce to customers. We certainly hope you are able to return to the North York market and we will definitely attend – with masks, gloves, and whatever it takes.
    Thank you for continuing to farm and bring healthy produce to our homes. We hope to see you in June. If not, we may have to take a drive to Jordan!
    Be well. We wish you good weather and good health.
    Jane (and Sandy)

  2. Very sad to hear that you will not be back to North York if it reopens. I’ve been buying my plants and produce from you for a very long time. Even when I stopped working at the library there, I came back. Three weeks ago I had my last squash that I had bought from you. A spaghetti squash, it was in perfect shape but some of the seeds inside had started to sprout. With any luck, I’ll get a squash or two from the plants, and I will think of you.

    • Thank you Sheilah!
      That will be the hardest part – not seeing all our long-time customers & friends again. Thank you for supporting us for many years.
      And good luck with your squash plants!

  3. Hi Ron and Amy and the whole family, I haven’t been to North York for a long time now, but remember your lovely stall there and all that I enjoyed from you. I wish you the best in your endeavours going forward, I think its going to be a different world at least for the rest of this year. Take good and best wishes

  4. Hello Ron and Amy and the family, I am sad you won’t be returning to North York market, but I’ve not been down for many years now, still I remember the lovely produce and plants I got from you for year. I wish you all well in your new endeavours and hope that you keep healthy and safe and that 2020 will be a good year for your farm. Best wishes to all.

  5. Hello to everyone, I have just read the detailed requirements in preparation for the Georgetown Farmers Market. I can scarcely imagine how this will work, but like everyone else, am looking forward to it. So glad it is going ahead and that you’ll make it there. The very best to all and wishing you the very best weather always.

    • Hi Kate! Good to hear from you. We can scarcely imagine how it will work either. Fingers crossed!!
      Thanks for your good wishes & hope to see you at market.

  6. Sorry to hear that you will not be at North York. Will you be anywhere else in the GTA. If not, do you allow customer to come to your farm. Do you still have the catnip plants. I am looking to buy a few.

    • Sorry Cathy. The only market we are doing this year is Georgetown on Saturdays.
      We have a self serve stand at the road with plants right now. But no catnip this year.

  7. Hi! I live in Georgetown and love your produce. I was wondering if you have a retail space on your farm for mid-week purchase?
