Pfennings’s Organic Farms (yes, plural!) is a community of farmers with a focus on family and community building. They think “local first” which drives them to build meaningful relationships with many of the best producers in the province to bring us a wide variety of high-quality produce. Hard-to-find items like ground cherries, fiddleheads and blue potatoes (one of our personal favourites) are easier for us to come by because of Pfenning’s. Thanks guys!

Our story

Our farm is nestled in a curve of the Nith River just outside Baden, Ontario, offering us a peaceful setting in which to raise our children. We think “local first” and focus on family and community building. Our staff, including Jamaican migrant workers, are not only employees, but neighbours and friends.

The Pfenning family has been farming since the late 1600’s. In 1981, Wilhelm and Barnhild Pfenning moved themselves and all four children (ages 11 to 19) to Canada. The family immediately started farming on the land where we are located to this day. Today, the farm is operated by Wolfgang and Ekkehard. Even though Wilhelm passed away in 2011, his wisdom and experience act as a guide and measure for the daily decisions that are necessary in running a farm. With hard work and some luck, the next generation of Pfennings will be ready and able to join the family business in 5 to 10 years..
