For nearly 40 years Lee & Maria have farmed their 30-acre piece of land on Seacliff Dr. in Kingsville, ON. They started out growing tomatoes to make ketchup. As the years have gone by, the focus turned from a single crop to dozens.
Now, over two dozen different crops are grown on the farm and sold through our on-farm market and delivered to over 600 homes and businesses weekly.
We pick the freshest fruits and vegetables from our farm, along with produce from other Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent farmers, and deliver the bounty to homes and businesses across Windsor-Essex and parts of Chatham-Kent.
We offer seven bin sizes ranging in price from $28.00 to $55.00. They include both regular and strictly organic options.
Early in the spring there aren’t enough items in season locally to fill a bin, so we use some imported fruits and vegetables to fill out the order until our local veggies are ready. We also offer options like extra fruit, farm fresh eggs, local bread and organic milk, which you can add to your bin.
We deliver to both homes and businesses, at no extra cost, across Windsor-Essex and parts of Chatham-Kent. Each area of the region receives
delivery on a different day.
You don’t have to be home to accept the delivery and we deliver to condos or apartment buildings. During sign-up you will be given the chance to give us detailed delivery information. Our delivery season runs from April to mid-October. You can sign-up for either weekly or bi-weekly delivery and can cancel at any time.
We can also set up a co-op at your business if there are more than 5 people interested. Email us for more info.
You can choose from two different payment plans:
Pay As You Go – You will be charged following each delivery to your home or business
Pay In Full – You can pay for the entire delivery season in full at the beginning of the season. There is a discount for paying up front.
We offer online credit card payment, or you can pay in cash during delivery.
**If you decide to pay cash, we expect you to leave your money with your empty bin so the delivery driver can pick-up the money. If the money isn’t left we will bring the bin back to the market in Kingsville for you to pick-up. If arrangements haven’t been made prior to your delivery day you will still be charged for the missed delivery.
We’re environmentally conscious at Lee and Maria’s, so we use plastic bins for delivery instead of boxes to cut down on waste. You just set your bin out for us and we’ll swap it out for one filled with fresh food. If you forget to set your bin out, we’ll still leave your delivery. If you forget to leave it out a second time you will be charged an extra $10. Those bins are like gold to us :).
We don’t grow organic produce ourselves, but we do have farmers who supply us with organic options.
GMO is a much murkier question. We don’t knowingly grow anything GMO. We don’t grow anything from Monsanto and nothing that is pesticide ready. That said, there are no regulations forcing seed companies to label seeds as GMO, so we could be growing some GMO varieties and not know it. But, we have been farming for over 35-years and most of the varieties we grow are the same ones we grew when we started.
You can log into your account and set a hold on your delivery while you’re away. Your deliveries will resume automatically when you return.
That is right! You can cancel the service at anytime without penalty. Only the initial membership fee isn’t refundable.
To me delivery day is like Christmas can't wait to see what goodies my basket holds. Everything is always nice and fresh and always a good variety.
I'm on disability and I am still able to afford this service. Knowing that I have fresh, healthy food coming to my door thru out the month is such a relief.
I love this idea and look forward to many more bins!
Everyone in our family is happy about the bin, and wants to be the first one to open it. The kids call me at work to tell me what came in. It is absolutely awesome, I hope that you continue with this for many years.
Your service has made us eat more vegetables and try new recipes. My oldest daughter happened to be living back at home this summer and she does not eat meat, so it helped to have more options for her.
Best quality, always fresh, a variety I wouldn’t think of, best thing I ever did for my family
We all can't wait to open up the bin. It's a race to the front door to see if its there and who gets to open it first. We have so much fun opening it up and get excited to see what is in there!
Your service has inspired me to learn how to cook healthy meals for myself and others and you have introduced me to a variety of new produce that I have always seen in the store but have been too intimidated to purchase
The service means healthier choices for my family and to explore new fruits & vegetables that we haven't cooked with before.
I love the service. I look forward to it every time and am very excited to see what was in it. Most of the time the small basket was even to big for me and I shared some of it with family and friends.
Our market started as one of the roadside stands you see dotting the roads across Essex County. We picked our crops and would set them out for sale each morning.
Now, we’re a 2500 sq. ft. fully stocked market with more than just produce. We also sell locally baked breads and pies, preserves, pasta, milk, cheese, and more. We’re a one stop shop for people who want to buy ethically grown, sourced, and local products.
