Vendor Spotlight: Sunshine Farms

September 29 Keltie Yearwood

Sunshine Farms knows a thing or two about being in a pickle. The Jaques family has been working the farm for 150 years and when they started producing asparagus and other vegetables in 1982, Claudia and John Jaques could not keep up with the demand from their friends and family for their homemade pickled goods! This jarred them into the realization that in order to keep up with the growing demand, they would have to start their own business. 


Local to: Toronto, Ontario. 

Today, Sunshine Farms is still family owned and operated by Claudia and John, and their three sons John, Ben, and Adrian. They offer 23 different kinds of pickles, half of which are certified organic!

Sunshine Farms does not use chemical additives or preservatives and takes pride in their products being 100% Canadian. The Jaques even grow most of their ingredients themselves! Just like at the beginning when Claudia and John started the business to meet demand, Sunshine Farms is dedicated to providing customers with the products they truly want.
