Going Country

Charlene Matthews lived her entire life in Toronto...until four years ago when she retired and moved to renovated farmhouse in Campbellford. She found it surprisngly easy to give up her city life and is embracing her inner country gril with enthusiasm!

Charlene and her husband now enjoy fresh eggs from their own chickens and vegetables from their large garden. She loves to create delicious preserves with the abundance of homegrown vegetables, using old family recipes.

Order your favourite local goods for pick up or home delivery. Prices are the producers' prices, you just pay a small shopping fee of $5.


We want to help you feel engaged in our local economy by helping you get to know the small producers and artisans in our community.


We hope the Homegrown Hamper will become a meeting ground for people to share and learn from one another.
