Beautify your outdoor living areas with plants grown at Steckle's Produce & Flowers garden centre. Visit our farm market and experience the benefits of family farm fresh. Not only the finest fruits and vegetables, but the warmth of a personal connection that will not be found in a supermarket setting. We are small enough to care about the food we offer, because it is also what we feed our own family. Steckle's Produce and Flowers is open May to October, 6 days a week, 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. We have an annual open house on the Friday and Saturday of the Mother's Day weekend, serving coffee and butter tarts.
When we started farming in 1992 as newly weds, we were continuing a family tradition of agriculture. Gradually our kitchen and flower gardens expanded. The hobby greenhouse was replaced by larger greenhouses, and the vegetable garden moved out of the yard and into the farm fields. Our family has grown to include four children and one dog. Everyone is involved, with Melvin managing the crop rotation, soil and animal nutrition side of things while Joanna is in charge of the garden centre and farm market. Our children work with us gaining valuable experience and fostering an awareness of nature. Our goal is to preserve the values of the faith, family and good stewardship for the following generations.
