Located 100 km west of Kingston in Prince Edward County, just outside the entrance to Sandbanks Provincial Park, Fosterholm Farms have been producing high quality dairy, fruit, vegetable and maple syrup products since 1924.
Harold Foster established Fosterholm Farms in 1924, but the family's Prince Edward County roots go much deeper, back to the United Empire Loyalists. Today Clifford Foster and and his son Dean operate the farm, working more than 1,500 acres of cash crops, fruit and vegetables as well as a herd of dairy cows and 7,000 tree taps that produce some of the County's finest maple syrup. Dean's son Rylan is now also full time on the farm, having just completed agriculture studies at University of Guelph, Kemptville.
Fosterholm Farms are proud producers of locally grown products, and have a long history at Kingston Market having provided Fosterholm Pure Maple Syrup products and homegrown Pussy Willows to Kingston residents every Spring for more than 20 years.
Since 2009, Fosterholm Farms has extended their season as vendors at Kingston Market from the start of Maple Syrup season in mid-March until Apple season in November each year, providing Kingston residents an entire growing season of locally grown fruits and vegetables fresh from Prince Edward County.
