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.
