This 215 acre farm has been owned and operated by the Downey family since 1920. The farm is located on Heart Lake Road, North of Brampton, Ontario.
In 1987, we opened a roadside corn stand, where the Downey children sold sweet corn so they could buy additional hockey equipment.
Soon, we renovated the dairy barn to house a farmer's market, with our own in-house bakery, and today we also house our own award-winning winery. In 2018, Downey's Farm Market will be celebrating 25 years.
The farm is a family operation, headed by John and Ruth Downey, and their youngest daughter, Darlene and her husband Nathan. Their oldest son, Greg, grows crops for the farm, and operates Downey's Strawberry & Apple Farm, sister farm to Downey's. Their other children, Ian, David, and Donna, continue to help out during busy seasons and festivals when not working at their full time careers.
