What We Do
We believe that food should heal and not harm and that our bodies are meant to be sustained by a whole foods plant-based diet. Since 2016, our mission has been to help people adopt happier and healthier lifestyles.
Here, at Paradise Fields, we ask ourselves, "What would it have been like in the Garden of Eden?” This helps guide us. We’ve built our practices on a foundation of regenerative agriculture, which emphasizes maintaining and restoring the land we farm to ensure the best growth conditions and results for a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
We care about our families, and we care about our land. This is why we fight food insecurity through meticulously caring for our soil and water sources to increase the nutritional value and taste of our products.
Avoiding harmful chemicals is not enough. From soil fertility to the diverse lifeforms in our ecosystem, we strive to maximize the vitality of every element that contributes to the health of our produce.
A Fresh and Unexpected Perspective on Organic Farming
At Paradise Fields, with our organic health food store, we imagine fruits and vegetables to be incomparable in taste and nutrition, farming to be sustainable, and living healthy to be easy thanks to access and abundance.
So, we built our practices on a foundation of regenerative agriculture, which emphasizes maintaining and restoring the land we farm to ensure the best growth conditions.
We meticulously care for our soil and water sources to increase the nutritional value and taste of our products.
Our practices naturally support the capture of greenhouse gases, increasing environmental resilience to climate change.
We feel everyone should eat organic food in Hamilton, Ontario, so we price fairly and have online and retail shopping options.

We believe in the power of nutrient-rich organic food to transform people. We believe food should heal, not harm. We believe God intended for us to be sustained by fruits and vegetables. We believe healthy food should be delicious and accessible. We believe in taking up our call to care for the land our food grows on. We believe our community deserves health and wholeness. We exist to help them get there.
