You like fresh, local, organic food and you want it delivered right to your home? At Pfennings Organic and More, we have you covered! We’ve been delivering organic goodness to people’s homes and workplaces since 1998.
We are Almut and Wolfgang, storeowners, health enthusiasts, and parents of five wonderful health-minded children. (You may see them around the Store from time to time!)
Almut founded Pfenning's Organic & More in 1993. Back then it was a small out-of-the-barn store on Pfenning’s Organic Vegetable Farm, where Almut grew up.
The Store moved to Baden in 1996, and then to St. Agatha in 1998, where it’s been ever since.
We strive to provide our customers with affordable REAL FOOD — fresh, certified organic, local fruits and vegetables, groceries, and some processed "health foods". We also offer locally-sourced organic pasture-raised meat, chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish and many other items.
In addition to all of this, we also carry bulk items, such as grains, flours, beans, nuts, seeds, spices, herbs. With our online service we offer you all of this, conveniently delivered right to your door!
In 1998, due to popular demand, we launched our Food Basket Home Delivery Service.
Almut, Wolfgang and their daughters, Barnhild and Aurelie, pack fresh Food Baskets that our customers love every week! After that, Wolfgang delivers them, bringing delicious and wholesome food directly to the homes of our customers.
Many of the vegetables in the Baskets come from local organic growers from all over Waterloo Region and the surrounding area.
In the summer, we can even include near-sustainable fruit from the Niagara Region. Anything not grown regionally we get from outside organic sources, preferably Canadian. In the winter, we will see produce coming from the U.S, Mexico, Central and South America.
You may recognize some of the local sources from the Basket Contents lists, such as HOPE (Healthy Organic Produce Enterprise, from Aylmer), Hack Farm (north of Kincardine), also with Hack-Heide (Elke & Martin Hack's younger daughter) and Hack-Chiel (Elke & Martin Hack's son-in-law), Golden Acres (north of Stratford), Slegers Organic Greens (hyroponics from Strathroy), Weth (Mushrooms from Goderich), HFF (Huron Family Farms), HCF (Huron Community Farms), Fertile Ground (just up the road from us in St. Agatha), Organic Oasis (north of Stratford), Palatine (our Niagara fruit producers), and others, many from Mennonite country to the north of us.
