HAPPY NEW YEAR! So excited to be growing again! WE ARE HIRING! Click the "Join our Team' tab to find out more!
Farming has always been our shared passion, so when we decided to ‘go all in’ and ‘make something happen’, we settled on growing a tomato that tastes like ‘summer’, yet available from April to November. Thus our farm vision was realized with the construction of our hydroponic greenhouse and farm store located just north of Hwy 401 in Kingston, Ontario, back in 2002.
We learned quickly that we needed to give our visitors more reasons to ‘stop’ and so we added more greenhouse space to grow top quality annuals and perennials for the home gardener.
Today, Sun Harvest has become the home of Kingston’s favourite tomatoes and the leading garden centre destination in the region. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for our visitors by delivering on our promise of the freshest, tastiest greenhouse and farm fresh produce and sharing our love of plants with gardeners of all types.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Why they do make us happy!
After the Christmas tree and decorations are packed away, it's time to return our houseplants to their rightful spots in our homes.
This gives us an opportunity to water our indoor plants deeply, check for pests, and polish their leaves, to help them maximize their growth producing ability as the January sun builds in strength. This also gives us an opportunity to appreciate why it is that they make us so darn happy. To read more..
All is quiet..
For a couple more weeks.
Then we are back at it, growing our hydroponic crops of tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuces. This is the time of year when we complete our renovations, clean and check our equipment and finalize our production schedules. Our retail team members enjoy a bit of 'downtime' ahead of staff training, finalizing our retail programming and refreshing some spaces in advance of welcoming our awesome customers back in early March. Seeding has begun on several crops, and by early February as the days get longer, we are in full production mode. Stay tuned!!
2022 is the Year of the Garden!
Last year the Canadian Garden Council (CGC) asked the Canadian Parliament to consider proclaiming the year 2022 as the 'Year of the Garden' to commemorate the centennial of Canada's ornamental horticulture sector and the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association.
Canadians' passion for gardening has never been been more evident since the COVID 19 pandemic began and has encouraged us to spend time greening our lives both indoors and out. Read more...
