Fresh from the Farm

Granite Ridge students will be fundraising with Fresh from the Farm again this fall. We are excited with this partnership as it gives us the opportunity to provide fresh Ontario produce to our community members, increase awareness about the importance of fresh, nutritious produce and raise funds for our school.

What Ontario-grown products are sold?

  • $14 Bundle A contains: 5 lb potatoes, 3 lb carrots, 3 lb onions, 3 lb sweet potatoes
  • $15 Bundle B contains: 8 lb Empire apples


We are proud of our Ontario farmers who promote and participate in Fresh from the Farm by growing and delivering their Ontario products directly to OUR school!
