You will like PFENNING'S ORGANIC!
We have been delivering organic goodness to people’s houses and workplaces since 1998. Our Food Baskets are delivered every week - to these areas and at these times - and you have the option of signing up for regular deliveries, weekly, biweekly, triweekly and so on, but you don’t have to. Some people just order on the go, or enjoy having Wolfgang do all the lugging when he delivers their groceries to their homes.
We are Almut and Wolfgang. Almut mostly runs the Store, plans and organizes and packs the Food Boxes – every week. Wolfgang also packs, but mainly delivers the Food Baskets, keeps contact with our customers, writes Newsletter and updates and does website maintenance. He also works on the Farm whenever he can. Oh, yes, we are also the parents of five wonderful, health-minded children.
Almut, who grew up on the Pfenning’s Organic Vegetable Farm, founded Pfenning's Organic & More in 1993 when it was still a small out-of-the barn store on the Farm. In 1996, we moved to Baden and two years later to St. Agatha - just 5 minutes from Waterloo - where we have been ever since.
In 1998, due to popular demand, Almut and Wolfgang launched the Food Basket Home Delivery Service.
In addition to all the vegetables from the Pfenning’s Farm, we offer the best in local organic produce from all over the area and from dozens of family farms. It’s actually like a CSA from many little local farms and groups of growers. You may recognize some of them from the Basket Contents lists, such as HFF (Huron Family Farms), HCF (Huron Community Farms), HOPE (from Aylmer) and others. 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. Especially in the winter, we will see produce coming from the U.S, Mexico, Central and South America.
We emphasize affordable REAL FOOD - fresh, certified organic, preferably LOCAL, fruits, vegetables & groceries and some processed "health foods". We also carry a great variety of bulk items, such as grains, flours, beans, nuts, seeds, spices, herbs, as well as locally-sourced organic pasture-raised meat, chicken, turkey, beef, pork, fish and many other items. With our online Food Baskets we offer you all this conveniently delivered right to your door.
