In 1994 Paul & Hilda de Jonge purchased 80 acres 5 kilometers (3 miles) east of Lethbridge and 1 kilometer (3/4 mile) 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 put up to grow peppers. In 2001 a larger greenhouse went into operation and tomatoes and cucumbers were added. Remodeling the old barn started in 2002 for the purpose of a produce store and the idea was born to add a café. Planning to attract tourists to the farm was one of the goals for setting up the facility. Ag-tourism has become a popular vacation attraction in many places in North America.
