Jack and Mary Dekok have farmed this land for decades with our parents and children, applying the motto úora et labora ù - pray and work - to all we do. Our farm has prospered as a result, and we look forward to providing local families with fresh fruits and vegetables as long as we are able.
We believe that we must be good stewards of what God has supplied us. That ôs why we compost, use fertilizers as a supplement rather than a cure-all, and rotate crops in balance with nature. We practice Integrated Pest Management, using chemicals only when absolutely necessary.
Thank you for supporting farmers and for buying locally grown produce.
The Dekok Family Berry Farm is an active member of the following organizations:
Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario
Eastern Ontario Berry Growers' Association

North American Berry Growers Assn
The farm also has an Environmental Farm Plan under the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food's standards.
