About Stroud Farms


Stroud Farms is a 2nd generation business and owns over 270 acres on the north side of Taunton Road in Ajax-Whitby where they operate their main store location. A roadside market is located just west of Lakeridge Road on the south side of Kingston Road in Ajax. Our markets open right after the July 1st holiday weekend and close in early December.
We Are Open From 9:00 A.M To 7:00 P.M. 7 Days A Week until November 27th.

Many customers that visit either of these locations began buying our fresh fruits and vegetables from us back in the 1960's when we operated a store in Pickering on Kingston Road west of Whites Road.

Len Stroud is the managing partner of Stroud Farms. His concept of direct-to-the-public fresh locally grown produce has grown to be extremely popular.
Everything we grow on the farm is for sale at our market – sweet corn, apples, pears, pumpkins, tomatoes. It’s amazing how many people want to buy from the farmer directly.
Foodland Ontario is talking about the miles traveled with the produce.
And there’s zero food miles to consider when you buy where it’s grown.

We’re able to pick our tomatoes ripe and sell them rather than picking them green to ship. The taste, it’s altogether different. A tomato that’s picked on the green side will ripen, but you don’t get the same flavour as a tomato that’s been ripened on the vine.

And of course corn, the sooner you can cook it, the better it is. It starts to lose some of its sugar content from the time you pick it. Buy corn from a grocery store today, it had to have been picked yesterday -- it’s already at least 24 hours old.

That’s why we pick every day. We have a number of people who will be waiting at the farm for us to come in with the corn in the morning. And that’s nice – I like that.

They say, ‘Oh you’ve got the best corn.’ ‘You grow such lovely tomatoes.’ ‘Your potatoes are the only ones I want.’ Nothing ups your ego like hearing that. It’s those things that keep you wanting to farm.

Farmers appreciate the customers who patronize the farmer’s markets and roadside stands. All of the farms that are selling on the roadside are the same – they’re growing stuff there, offering it to the public, trying to cut the middleman out and increase the quality of produce the consumer purchases on any given day.
Farmers are pretty happy to have people buying like that.
