About Us

maureen and chicks webThe Giffen farm has been in the family since 1945 and for the last several years, Jim and his late wife operated the farm here in Minesing, Ontario, near Barrie...Maureen will be truly missed. She left behind her mark in so many ways. The incredible impact on the farm she made will last forever and it never will be forgotten.

Along with Jim's University of Guelph diploma, and his years of experience and research, the farm has been certified organic since 2008. The CSA program began years ago with 21 families and continues to expand with their Summer and Winter programs.

With Jim's dad as not only a father but a mentor and helping hand, Edencrest farm has evolved into more of an all around business. The dairy part of the business left in 1995 and since then Edencrest has grown into a multitude of different commodities. 

On the farm you will find a cow/calf operation, chickens, laying hens, various crops, greenhouses, and a year round CSA. Come check out Edencrest Farms for your fresh, local, organic produce and varieties of local meats.

Thank you very much for the wonderful time on your farm.  We had a relaxing and peaceful time-the children enjoyed riding-and the little cats-and Sparkey!  The breakfast every morning was better then most 5 star hotels! And the taste of fresh eggs is not comparable to the normal ones!  Klass' favorite was the potatoes!
