100% Ontario

Fruit is always the last holdout to keep our boxes 100% Ontario, and with the arrival of some early season pears at Fisher Farms we will be able to do just that this week in Milton! The first crop of the season at Fisher farms are the of the sweet pear variety which grow much smaller than bosc or bartlett pears. These are definitely a special variety that you wouldn’t find in the grocery store and it’s always a treat to get them in the Fresh Food Box for the limited time that they’re available. The perfect size for your kids or a quick snack enjoy these while they last!
