Why buying local is better
How We Grow
Knowing where your food comes from is extremely important. We believe that knowledge is key. The future of fresh depends on sustainability, traceability, and innovation. From seed to harvest, our plants are hand grown with care. From being grown in recycled coconut husks, to the 100% closed loop system, to the wood burners used to heat our greenhouses, we treat out plants with the utmost care.

Innovation Leads To Growth
All of our tomatoes begin in our Research Greenhouse. We research & trial over 300 tomatoes every year to ensure we are growing tomatoes that are of the highest quality with maximum flavor. Once tomatoes live up to the NatureFresh™ standards, we then put them into full production. OntarioRed comprises of 10 acres of bright, red, vine-ripened tomatoes that are grown in Leamington, Ontario.
OntarioRed tomatoes are grown in a state-of-the-art greenhouse that allows us to achieve the highest quality of standards & consistent flavor. Throughout the facility traceability technology has been implemented that allows NatureFresh™ to know exactly where every vegetable was grown. In addition, growers are able to remotely access their crops and adjust aspects of the growing environment such as temperature or irrigation from the comforts of their home. This allows us to be positive the plants are receiving exactly what they need – day and night.
We. Are. NatureFresh™.
Trust is built on delivering the best quality you grow, regardless of the season. From seed selection to plant nutrition to cultivation and every step in between. A grower knows his plants but knows his tomatoes even better. When you purchase an OntarioRed Tomato, it’s coming from the same grower every time. We guarantee it.
