Westmoreland/Topline™ Farms is excited to announce a 25-acre expansion at their Flavor Fresh Farms greenhouse in Leamington, ON. Flavor Fresh began production in June 2021, helping Westmoreland/Topline meet growing demand for greenhouse-grown produce.
The combination of their state-of-the-art packing system and two successful growing seasons have allowed Westmoreland/Topline and Flavor Fresh to confidently transition into phase 2/4 of their expansion plan. The new build gives the companies 50 acres to work with, with plenty of room for future growth.

“Westmoreland/Topline Farms is dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers through this expansion. We have a long-term vision to lead the industry through cutting-edge technology and superior product quality,” said Dino Dilaudo, vice-president of sales.
The technology in Flavor Fresh’s new facility will help drive Westmoreland/Topline Farms’ focus on providing locally grown produce to retailers throughout the winter months. The new greenhouse will include supplemental lighting using high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps. This gives Flavor Fresh the ability to grow premium-quality vegetables 365 days of the year.
For year one, Flavor Fresh will produce long English cucumbers, with plans to add several varieties of tomatoes in the future.
