About Forsythe Farms

Our Farm

forsythe farms

Forsythe Family Farms 2009 Inc.  is owned and operated by Jim and Leslie Forsythe.

Jim has been growing for the GTA for over 41 years, beginning in Markham in 1972 with cash crops.  He then switched to growing and marketing fresh fruits and vegetables selling directly to the public through an outdoor market and pick your own at 14th and McCowan Rd.

We relocated, due to development, to our Kennedy Rd location in 1986.  We became established there as an on-farm market, pick your own, school tours and were well known as a fun family destination.  After 27 years at this location, our lease was terminated.

Our on-farm market, fun farm family activities, school tours and field trips are now at our home farm in Greenbank where we’ve been establishing our roots since 1997.  Celebrating the harvest with our seasonal festivals are still highlights in our growing year.  You can still find us at the Markham Fair which takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving.

We thank you for being a part of our lives.  We also thank you for your continued support here in Greenbank.
