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!

Pumped to be growing again!
Our tomato greenhouse is alive again with thousands of tomato plants. We are growing our customer favourite beefsteak tomatoes, tomatoes on the vine, the super sweet, super 'addictive Sweetelle grape tomatoes and a flavourful cocktail variety.
English cucumbers are seeded and will be transplanted in a few weeks, with our new lettuce crop ready to be transplanted in the pond.
So that means, you can look forward to the freshest local produce in March when we reopen our Garden Centre Market again.

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...
