Cookstown Greens

The Family Behind the Farm

Our passion is to grow great food and give our customers a great food experience.

We focus on using the best organic methods to produce nutritious and flavourful vegetables and keeping our soil and the ecosystem healthy, which creates a happy and healthy environment for our staff.

We welcome you to contact us with any questions or visit us at the farm!

Vicky Ffrench

Vicky communicates with our customers every week to take their orders. She organizes the washing, harvesting and packaging of the vegetables for our chefs, stores and farmers' markets and prepares our driver to hit the road every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for deliveries. If you call the farm she will likely be the one to answer.

Mike Ffrench

Mike does all the field planning, which means he decides which fields will be used to grow crop each year, which fields will be rested and when things will be planted. He organizes and works with our farm workers in the field during the growing season prepping beds, planting, harvesting and field maintenance (aka weeding). In the winter he manages the greenhouses and lends his muscle in the shed, where we are washing and packing organic vegetables every day.

What Our Customers Say:

  • I don't remember the last time I ate a potato that tasted like, well, a potato. I hadn't realized how tasteless some food had become until you brought my taste buds to life.
