About This Market

Green Barn is a family-owned farm in Canada dedicated to promoting food diversity and sustainable agricultural practices. With over 40 years of fruit-growing experience, they offer a wide variety of cold-hardy and disease-resistant fruit trees, including unique varieties like mulberries, pawpaws, persimmons, and almonds, all adapted to Canada’s colder climates. They are committed to natural farming, employing zero herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides, and they do not use GMOs. Green Barn Farm practices “zero interference” agriculture, letting nature determine what grows on their 70-acre property.

Responding to the decline of fruit tree nurseries in Canada, Green Barn has taken up the mantle to supply retail nurseries with their diverse inventory of plants. They also provide eco-education, custom-designed gardens, and consultancy services. Green Barn Farm exemplifies a shift towards high-quality, home-grown produce as it advocates for the Canadian economy and environmental awareness. They also encourage consumers to grow their own organic produce, especially items from the “Dirty Dozen” list of fruits and vegetables high in pesticide residues.

In addition to promoting organic farming and food security, Green Barn addresses broader issues such as climate change and supports projects for carbon sequestration through planting the right species of trees. Ken and Lorraine Taylor, the minds behind Green Barn, have cultivated their farm into a model for future sustainable farming in Canada.
