Situated just north of Maryhill, Ontario, Maryhill Organics is a family operated farm that sells fresh produce to the local community. Janice, Jeremy, Ivy, Spencer, and Violet Erb have been operating their farm since 2014. From day one, Maryhill Organic’s mission has been to provide the community with sustainably grown, local produce. 

Since joining the Guelph Farmers’ Market in 2020, Maryhill Organics has experienced remarkable growth. Starting with a 2-acre market garden in 2019, they’ve expanded to an impressive 6 acres in 2023. Fueled by loyal and happy customers, Maryhill Organics has established themselves as a premium produce vendor at the Guelph Farmers’ Market.

But Maryhill Organics doesn’t just grow the usual produce fare you might find at a chain grocery store; they specifically work to cultivate a diverse selection of unique and special vegetables that have become customer favorites. Their commitment to growing organic produce and continuous improvement shines through in the quality and variety of their products.

“Our facility is really great.  We call it a farm.  This facility is our home, it is pretty awesome.  We are lucky to be blessed with a little piece of land, close to Guelph.  We enjoy the labour of love, anger, frustration and stress that farming brings.”

-The Erb Family

For the family farm, being a part of the Guelph Farmers’ Market isn’t just about selling produce – it’s about building connections. The sense of community is one of their most cherished market experiences. If you haven’t had a chance to drop by the Maryhill Organics stall, expect to be greeted warmly and share in a laugh or two. Janice and Jeremy are incredibly knowledgeable farmers’, and they are both happy to share fun farm stories or veggie facts with their customers.

“I would like to think we have a great connection to our customers at the Guelph Farmers Market.  We want to be able to provide people with fresh food year around and invest into making the Farm a sustainable and enjoyable business for future generations.”

-The Erb Family
