We believe food should be made with only real ingredients found in a kitchen and should be consumed fresh and NOT several months after manufacturing! We also believe that the goal of a business is more than just the pursuit of profit. All of our products are handmade in Toronto using fresh and mostly organic and local ingredients, and contain absolutely no additives or preservatives – real or artificial. Our products are always made from fresh and whole ingredients and not powders, extracts or concentrates.

The bakery, open all year, offers fresh artisan breads integrating farm ingredients into a wonderful worldwide variety of grains, some gluten free.

Monforte Dairy
In a world gone mad for innovation and change, it’s the small pleasures that keep us sane. And in the constellation of small pleasures that salve the mind and nourish the body, what trumps the sheer sensual deliciousness of a well-crafted cheese? At Monforte, we’re convinced the small things do indeed make a difference, that agriculture is best practiced on a human scale, and that our cheeses, each in its own way, reflect something a  little deeper than the technology behind mass manufactured food – a little of the poetry and passion of life itself.

Our team of Urban Farmers, Community Workers, including a Holistic Chef who is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, considers the practice of food cultivation, preparation and serving a sacred art. Only natural ingredients as they occur in nature mostly sourced from our gardens or local farmers are utilized; free of chemical additives, dyes, preservatives, artificial flavors or sweeteners.

Wyndvale Heights Farm
We own a small farm in the lovely Beaver Valley area north of Toronto which borders Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment.  Our goal was to design a strong stake for my garden, something that would not break or easily bend. It was to have a simple, pleasant appearance and not be distracting from the beauty of the garden. We were so happy with the product that we decided to manufacture it and share this remarkable new stake that we named the PermaStakeTM.
