Butterfly Story

Butterfly Story

The Monarch Butterfly appears on all of our labels for a reason. The Monarch Butterfly is one of nature’s greatest mysteries. With its migration path beginning in Southern Ontario, thousands of these butterflies, travel over the Great Lake Erie, through Point Pelee Peninsula in Kingsville, Ontario and on to central Mexico. The Monarch begins and ends their journey in each of our farm regions.

Representing, strength, endurance and beauty, the Monarch Butterfly is a symbol of the quality of our produce that you can rely on when purchasing the Red Sun and Golden Sun Greenhouse Produce Brand.

We want to promote the recovery of the monarch population now.  To learn more please visit our Save our Monarchs Campaign.

That is why we not only grow superior products, but also to take great pride in our partnerships to help make a difference!

We are active and support organizations that lobby for a healthier North America by way of parent and child education, school cafeteria programs, and we are continually aligning ourselves with organizations that endorse item level traceability.

We support these causes by donating produce to their initiatives and events.
