Meet the Fergusons

Mike and Cheri Ferguson
Celebrating More Than 40 Years of Farming

In 1964 John Norman Ferguson purchased 150 acres of land on Wellington Road near St. Thomas, Ontario. John's son Mike (left) farmed with his father and in 1970 took over the operation, which at the time consisted of hogs and cash crops.

From Feed Corn to Sweet Corn

With the help of his son Jason, a small seasonal roadside sweet corn business began. Eventually, after 25 years of being in the hog business it was time for a change.

Strawberry Fields Forever

In 1989, the Ferguson's planted their first strawberries and pumpkins followed soon after. Twenty years later, in 2009, the farm consists of 7 varieties of strawberries - available at the retail roadside market, through U-pick or through select grocery stores in Southwestern Ontario. Ferguson berries grow with drip line irrigation that provides proper moisture and nutrients. Our soil is clay-loam and is systematically drained.

It's No Wonder They Call It 'Sweet' Corn

The Fergusons are well known for their sweet corn in August and early September. Several varieties are picked fresh daily.
