About Martin Farms
Martin Farms Ltd. was started as a market garden in 1913 by Leo Martin Sr. He grew an assortment of vegetables for sale to local grocery stores and in his stall on the St. Catharines’ Farmers Market. In the late 1920’s he built his first greenhouse to supply vegetable plants to local farmers. During the fall of 2008, Martin Farms’ fifth generation has started with the birth of Leo’s Great, Great, Grandson. At Martin Farms, we now give our complete attention to greenhouse production of plants for the home gardener. Vegetable plants are still our specialty, along with an extensive catalogue of garden flowering plants. Carrying on with the traditions Leo Sr. installed in us, we strive to be good stewards of our environment using the methods he taught along with modern innovations we continually review and update so that our next generations benefit as well as we do.
History of The Veggie Guy
The Veggie Guy resulted as our way of acknowledging the ever growing concern and need for sustainability within the world around us. We began to look at the world around us and to take into consideration the growing need for responsible productivity of both container gardens and traditional gardens. The name Veggie Guy resulted out of the products’ personality. Of course we couldn’t resist using a scarecrow as our mascot for such a fun, functional, upbeat, and responsible product. Watch our website as soon there will be pictures of our scarecrow and our family.
