In response to the overwhelming demand for information about organics and specifically the products and methods of Vanhart Greenhouses,
we've gone online to deliver the latest organics news straight to your table (or desk!).

The core of our website includes the history of 3 generations of Vanharts and their shared love for growing as told in "Our Story". Finally understand the definition of "organic" in "About Organics" and learn more about the techniques used on our farm by reading "How We Grow" and "Pest Management". Everything you need to know to taste the fruits of our labour is covered in "What We Grow", "Locations" and "Contact Us".

In addition, every two months we will publish this electronic newsletter, providing updates on organic growing, delicious recipes and other interesting organics facts. If you would like to add a friend to our distribution list, please send us their email address.

It is our business to grow, so expect big things from Vanhart Greenhouses - All Organic in the months to come!

Feature Market
The Summerhill Market is located in the heart of Rosedale, just East of Mount Pleasant and North of Bloor. Owned and operated by the McMullen family since 1954, this community market is open 364 days a year and is dedicated to providing the finest products and the best old-fashioned service. At Summerhill Market you can purchase VanHart's organic lettuce, spinach and tomatoes practically all year-round and VanHart's cucumbers, peppers and other produce when seasonal. Please visit our 'Locations' page on for store hours and directions.

Fiction: All organics are grown in manure.

Fact: While some organic farmers believe in using animal waste as fertilizer, VanHart Greenhouses choose not to use manure because of the risk of transmitting disease. Instead we use an all-natural compost, of our unique formulation, containing peat moss, loam, worm castings and kelp. The result is a soil rich in nitrogen and minerals that promotes healthy plant life.

Our trademark is our bright red, juicy beefstake tomatoes. We produce approximately X per year and they are available from May to Nov. Vine-ripened, our tomatoes are allowed to fully develop their delicious flavour and because they are ripened on the vine they contain important phytochemicals proven to prevent cancer. We offer yellow and red beefstake tomatoes in 4 varities as well as yellow pear tomatoes, and 6 kinds of cherry tomatoes. Try some today in your favorite recipe.
