In 1994 Paul & Hilda de Jonge purchased 80 acres five kilometres east of Lethbridge, 1km south of Highway 3 on the Broxburn road. The farm provided a home, but also was planned for a U-pick operation. In 1996 a small greenhouse was built to grow peppers. In 2001 a larger greenhouse went into operation and tomatoes and cucumbers were added to the mix. Remodeling the old barn started in 2002 for the purpose of a produce store and the idea to ass a café was born. In June 2004 the café was officially opened. Today land is rented for crop rotation to keep the home fields in top condition. The years between brassica crops forage is grown. This minimizes the seeding out of weeds.
