We are Zenryu Owatari and Ava Richardson of Hello Farm, a small market garden in Havelock, ON. We recently moved here from Kyoto, Japan where we farmed for over a decade. We offer over 150 varieties of mostly heirloom vegetables such as Japanese greens and eggplant, baby salad mix, heirloom tomatoes, edamame soy beans, Japanese radish, cucumbers and more. We follow organic practices and aim to be certified in the next few years. We were recently certified as a local MyPick business with Farmers Markets Ontario. Zenryu is a long-time vegan chef and will be offering vegan bento box meals, sushi and Japanese pickles through the Homegrown Hamper. Ava is also a teacher and is passionate about seed-saving to help build local food security.
