A Little Bit About Us

Campbell’s Cross Farm is located in Caledon, Ontario, about 35 minutes north of Toronto. We grow 700,000 sunflowers (approximately 30 acres) each year.

Our Farm Team is a group of individuals who share the same beliefs and goals and know how to connect to our guests while working hard at their farm jobs.
