Our farm philosophy is to produce what we believe to be the worlds finest summer savory and use it to create great food products! We believe that in doing this we are serving our neighbor and God. We are committed to helping our neighbour and have done so both through our church and by assisting Farmers Helping Farmers efforts in Kenya. www.farmershelpingfarmers.ca
Our savory is harvested and dried in August and September and sold year round. The savory, actually Summer Savory – Saturna hortensis, began for us on a very small scale in 1979 as a fundraiser for a lady’s group in our church. The following year the ladys bowed out and my father began to employ modern farming methods and mechanized drying to produce the crop. He also began to build the specialized machinery needed to handle, dry and process the crop. Inventing and reinventing machinery has been his work and passion to this very day. His goal has always been to produce the finest quality savory possible.
In 1999 we purchased T.C.Wile Enterprises, a savory packaging and distribution company, from T.C. himself. Prior to 1999 we had supplied T.C.Wile with savory and as our ability to produce had increased, so had T.C.’s market. We now package and distribute savory to over 200 customers in Atlantic Canada. The search for complimentary products and distribution efficiency led us to investigate organic herbs. We are currently certified with Atlantic Certified Organic www.atlanticcertifiedorganic.ca and now package 30 organic herbs and spices.
