In 1969, Noel and Madeleine DeBackere bought the main DeBackere Farm in Dexter, Ontario and started a tobacco farm. Over the years, there was a transition from tobacco to selling fresh produce. Their son, Dan DeBackere, eventually took over the farm and in 2005, DeBackere Farms transitioned to only farm fresh produce. Dan and his wife Joanna began to diversify the farm and became food safety certified to have contracts to sell produce in Loblaws and Metro.
In 2016, Joanna and Dan DeBackere, alongside their brother Rick and his wife Jen, had a vision to open a farm market. With the perfect location up for sale, the vision became a reality. The farm market is located just outside of the village of Port Stanley and is the perfect place to stop on your way to the beach and the way home. At the market you will find fresh new potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, asparagus, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, sweet corn, beans, in season fruit and various other nutritious produce for sale.
The DeBackere Farm Market motto is “from our family to yours”, as the DeBackeres can always be found at the market or nearby farming the fields.
