The 100 acre farm was purchased in Desboro, Ontario twenty years ago.
The land was very rocky, but garlic could grow nicely in the clay soil. Tony started selling garlic at the Owen Sound Farmer’s Market about eight years ago and Genette came on board the business five years ago.
With Genette being born in New Brunswick and Tony in Ireland, it was decided to name the farm ‘Acadian Shamrock Farm’, fittingly.
The business has expanded into selling other garlic products like, garlic jellies, garlic scape spice, garlic scape relish, pickled garlic scapes, scapes, dill pickles, gift baskets and more.
