Patchwork Gardens

Sustainable Growth and Community Connection

Patchwork Gardens, initiated in 2004 by Eric Williams, Ian Stutt, and Megan Joslin in Battersea, has transformed from a small vendor at a farmers’ market with a successful Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to a significant player in the wholesale market.

Their commitment to sustainable, local agriculture, while producing chemical-free, nutrient-rich vegetables, has made them a preferred supplier for chefs and foodies across the region.

The construction of a multi-functional facility provided significant growth for Patchwork Gardens, incorporating a greenhouse, cold storage, and packaging area. With the support from Frontenac Business Services, this development enhanced their operational capacity, leading to increased production. 

Today, Patchwork Gardens is celebrated for their diverse array of year-round, sustainably grown produce, adhering to strict environmental and community standards. The business model for Patchwork Gardens focuses on efficiency and productivity, which has cemented their status in the agricultural market.

The evolution of Patchwork Gardens has underscored the founders’ dedication to sustainable farming through their commitment to strategic planning, creating and nurturing partnerships, and being active in the community. Their journey provides key insights for entrepreneurs about the necessity of thorough planning, collaboration, and a strong community network as the foundation for a successful venture. Now, a leader in sustainable agriculture, Patchwork Gardens embodies the successful transition from a modest beginning to a thriving business. They have become a model for sustainable farming success in the agricultural sector with their commitment to quality, sustainability, and community focus.
