Martin Family Fruit Farms: A Long History With the Land
The Martins’ farming roots are deep; going all the way back to 1820 and a promise to Mother Nature that the fertile lands she placed in the family’s hands would be tended forever with care and passion. For nearly 200 years, generations of Martins farmed their land and marveled at the miracles that it could produce. But it was many decades before young Leighton Martin saw the apple of his eye and planted the first acre of the Martin’s Orchard. With the sale of the first 4-1/2 bushels at the Waterloo Farmer’s Market, his prediction of the sweet, tart and juicy apples that would make the Farm famous came true.
The dream continues to grow; from 100 trees in 1971 to over 700 acres today. At Martin’s Family Fruit Farm, their pride is in every apple that leaves their orchard. Their chips are apple through and through. Made from fresh-picked apples with the water removed, and packed as crisp and pure original flavour, or with a hint of cinnamon or chocolaty indulgence in a snack-sized bag full of the goodness they’re famous for.
Besides producing world-famous apples, they’ve always had a keen imagination. So it was only a matter of time before they came up with a new way to enjoy them. A pure and simple idea to offer apples disguised as chips. Crunchy circles without the water but with all the goodness and a choice of four flavours: Original, Cinnamon, Chocolaty Drizzle and Caramel Dream.
