Sundown Farms was first established when the Visscher family moved from Holland in 1987 and bought a farm. They planted strawberries and raspberries. The following spring the first rows of the apple orchard was planted. After many years of being apple farmers they decided to add a little fruit and vegetable stand to sell their produce. A few years later they built that vegetable stand into a green house. In 2018 the hard decision to take out the apple tress and strawberries was made. Since then, the Urban Wheel has joined Sundown Farms and expanded more into a one stop shop with a huge variety or local items.
We currently sell dutch imports, eggs, cheese -from Brights Cheese, Gunns Hill, Mountain Oak Cheese, goats cheese from Great Lakes and Norview Dairy- Hewitts dairy products, Roos Meats, Denbesten Rainbow Trout, Van Straten baked goods, Oxford Brand (unpasteurized honey) maple syrup, jams, apple sauce, apple butter, handmade items, spices, herbs, potatoes all year long, and much more!
We are always getting fresh, local produce too! Our fruits and vegetables will change as they become ripe and in season.
It all started when Rebecca approached Jessica to open a little seasonal stand made up of artisan goods. Both knew they loved creating hand made items and supporting other local artists. The more they talked the more the idea grew and formed into a year around artisan boutique.
All of the items that stock our many shelves are 100% handmade by some pretty amazing locals. We love what we do and we love giving people the opportunity to help shop and support local businesses.
We are proud and honoured to be able to support Ontario farmers and producers. Here is a list of most of the brands we have in store.
