Welcome to River Bell Market Garden


About the Farmer

Joseph Grootenboer

 Love of the land came back to me in my backyard garden, even while working as an engineer in construction.  Just after our first baby and in our 2nd year of marriage, in 2011 we relocated from Edmonton AB to Dresden ON to set up a much larger garden.  Creating our business and home here in southwestern Ontario has been a challenge, but in so many ways we have it all and feel very blessed.  Thank-you to Chatham-Kent for supporting our vision of sustainable and beautiful farming and for enjoying our produce!

​Our Farming Practices

At River Bell Market Garden, we believe in providing the best quality food while maintaining the best quality soil. This is why we are a certified organic farm, using only natural fertilizers and sustainable farming practices.

Our Box Delivery Program

We are excited to offer a box delivery program for members within the Chatham-Kent and Sarnia- Lambton communities. Customers have the freedom to order from our online store to complete all their weekly vegetable needs. A great way to eat organic and support local while still having the ease of online shopping!
