We have been following Andrew Campbell’s video series called The Dinner Starts Here as he tours 52 Canadian farms in 52 weeks. Of particular interest to us are his visits to fruit and vegetable farms. In his most recent stop, he went to Jason Verkaik’s farm called Carron Farms located in the Holland Marsh.
Verkaik is a third-generation farmer growing 250 acres of carrots, onions and beets. In addition to growing vegetables, he also has two packing facilities and runs a food box program. His two sisters are also involved in the family operation.
