About Us

My name is Chris DeVries. I’m thrilled to be in my 3rd year doing what I’ve been planning for the last 10 years.We have chickens, dogs, and 3 kids on a 40+ acre property just outside of St. Thomas.  Our kids play a big role on the farm; from collecting eggs to growing those giant pumpkins.

Morgan comes by way of the University of Guelph but further back than that, from Wingham Ontario. She has moved back to Common Ground Farm for a second season of fun!

We’d love to know more about you; why you seek about locally-grown produce; what brought you here; maybe we can even trade some recipes! Please drop us a line!
