Brown Sugar Produce is located just outside of Brandon Manitoba in the heart of the prairies. The farm is run by Stephanie Dillon and her daughter Teri Jenkins with husband Jon & daughter Myrah. We grow at two farm locations on about 4 cultivated acres. We sell from our market trailer in front of Lady of the Lake Cafe on Fridays from mid-June through September, and supply weekly CSA customers in our Veggie Lovers’ Club. In the spring we operate a shoots and microgreens CSA program. We believe in ecological growing methods and our favourite part of what we do is creating close relationships with our community of local Veggie Lovers.
Most vegetables grow well at the farm, but we are known for particularly enormous onions, super sweet carrots and rainbow carrots, field-ripened Manitoba tomatoes, as well as the freshest pickling cukes around. Stephanie also makes the best dill pickles you’ve ever tasted and Ukrainian Beet Leaf Buns, which sell out as fast as she can make them. In the winter months, we grow pea & other shoots for a steady supply of fresh, nutritious greens.
We love the connection involved in direct marketing our vegetables, and take pride in knowing each customer by name and also by their favourite vegetable!
