Host Farm:

Laprise Farms, owned by Jean Marie and Lucille Laprise, is Canada's largest Brussels sprouts producer with partner Dave Van Segbrook. Located in Pain Court, Ontario, Laprise Farm specializes in fresh Brussels sprouts, carrots, peas, and tomato production for the processing industry. The farm also includes a greenhouse vegetable transplant business, grain crops, and seed corn.

Jean Marie and Lucille now farm with their children and make it their objective to create opportunities for employment and growth within their community. The Laprise family is looking forward to opening their farm gates during the Brussels sprout harvest to allow families and urban and suburban consumers to chat with farmers while providing a glimpse of a working Ontario farm.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore the greenhouse, tour Laprise Farms, connect with Ontario farmers and farm organizations, and enjoy a mouthwatering brunch. Mark your calendars and join us on October 21, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., for the all-new Breakfast on the Farm: Brunch Edition - a celebration of Ontario's bountiful food culture that will leave you inspired and satisfied.
