Adopt a RoadWho we are:

Edgar Farms is a 6th generation family farm in central Alberta. Back in 1986, inspiration to start diversifying into the locally-grown, consumer-direct market first came from tasting the intenseness of the flavor of asparagus grown in our family garden and the desire to market direct to consumers. No one else was growing asparagus in our weather-challenged climate so we gave it a try. We now harvest a 21 acre patch of asparagus every spring which, due to our unique cool Alberta spring nights and optimum soil conditions, has incredible sweetness and amazing flavor.
