RE-OPENING FOR THE SEASON - TUESDAY FEBRUARY 27TH. WE CAN'T WAIT TO WELCOME YOU BACK TO YOUR 'HAPPY PLACE'
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, AND the super sweet, super 'addictive Sweetelle grape tomatoes. .
English cucumbers are seeded and will be transplanted shortly, with our new lettuce crop floating happily in our pond. Look for our first lettuce crop to be ready by end of February!!
Soon, you can enjoy the freshest salads with Sun Harvest produce! Stay tuned for updates on our early March opening!
In 2023, the underlying theme will be 'I believe in ME'.
In this crazy mixed up world, we may not be able to change alot of external things, BUT we can control what we do, what we think and what we buy.
Self reliance is the most important thing and consider, if you will, how plants are fundamental to that notion.
We already proved that we can grow our own food during the pandemic, and according to industry garden trend reports, up to 3/4 of those of us who embraced gardening in 2020 , are sticking with it! Plants help us do that!
If we like a bouquet of flowers, we want to grow the plants to give us that bouquet. Plants help us do that!
