Il Convento

There are three simple ingredients in our amaretti: almonds, eggs and sugar – that is it.  The nut is our first ingredient and the most important.  They come from select California almonds and we roast the almonds ourselves to perfection.  The eggs come from free run hens that are humanely raised.   Our sugar is simply cane sugar; we do not use corn syrup, glucose or fructose.   It is this combination of real and natural ingredients that imparts all the delicious flavour.

The original recipe has always been gluten free.  Taste the passion, handcrafted quality, natural, real and simple ingredients.  We use no artificial preservatives, flavours, colours or whenever possible no GMOs.

Millcreek Flower Farm

Early in the season we sell annual and perennial bedding plants (in cell packs, 4-5 1/2″ pots and planters). We also have tomatoe plants in 4″ pots: herbs in 4″ pots and planters, and garden vegetables in both 4-packs and 4″ pots. We also have patio pot sized tomatoes available starting in middle June. Once everyone has their own gardens planted we start to switch over to cut flower bouquets, which we grow, cut and bunch ourselves, while keeping the herbs and planters available. As the season progresses we carry only herbs and cut flower bouquets. When October arrives we add autumn decorating items such as dried bouquets, mini gourds, corn stalks, wall hangers, door hangers (made with dried flowers), mini pumpkins already decorated as jack-o-lanterns and turkeys. As you can see herbs play a large role in our lineup and we have many customers at the market who are chefs and love to purchase live plants herbs to grow themselves. Thank you and we look forward to networking.

We are a vegetable greenhouse operation specializing in grape tomatoes. The plants are grown from February to December each year. Production starts in late April and goes through to Christmas.

We seek to grow environmentally friendly grape tomatoes. Integrated pest management is used extensively in the greenhouse. A variety of wasps and mites are established in the greenhouse micro environment to control the unwanted pests. Bumble bees are brought into the greenhouse to assist in the pollination of the flowers.
The fertilization system is computer controlled. The nutrients within the fertilization system are carefully monitored to maximize the flavor of our grape tomatoes.
The ideal greenhouse climate is also computer controlled to enhance the growing process. The heating, cooling and humidity are all kept in balance to optimize plant growth. Our greenhouse is enriched with CO2 for improved plant and fruit quality.
We are always looking for different varieties that provide the best taste. Flavor is very most important to us; but, texture, shelf life, and production are all considered in choosing the varieties we grow.
We are a member of the Ontario Greenhouse Marketing Board. We are a member of Ontario Farms Fresh Marketing Association. We are a member of Local Food Plus. We are a member of Ontario Fresh. We are a member of Canadian Farmers Market
