The history runs deep on Anga’s Farm. This site was declared as the last remaining working farm by Etobicoke City Council on October 6th 1997.
Originally part of a 150-acre land purchase made by John Grubb in 1833, over the years parts of the land was subdivided. In 1950, Percy and Gloria Kirby bought 4 acres of fertile land.
The Kirby’s farmed the land and sold the produce to wholesalers as well to local residents. They constructed greenhouses and cold frames that grew a variety of crops, from rhubarb to cabbage and tomatoes. Two of the current greenhouses at Anga’s Farm are constructed on the footings of the original greenhouses from the 1960s.

After the Kirby’s, the property was sold to developers who tried to rezone the property to a small subdivision could be built. Local residents and the Councillor opposed this project, forcing the developer to sell the property.
Meanwhile, John Anga would drive by the property occasionally and dream of buying it, even though by now it had been abandoned and run down. When the “For Sale” sign went up again in 1980, he acted immediately and purchased the land.
At first, local residents were fearful that Anga wanted to develop the land like the previous owner and fortunately, that wasn’t his plan. Over time, Anga renovated the existing house and rebuilt the greenhouses and other run-down structures.
Soon he was growing vegetables and fruits in his orchard, operating a plant nursery and producing honey.
In 1997, just prior to the amalgamation of Toronto, Anga received a declaration from the City of Etobicoke recognizing his property as the last working farm in Etobicoke.
To this day, Anga’s Farm still carries on the tradition of the early settlers that farmed along the fertile lands of the Humber River. Thousands of plants are grown in the greenhouses and sold at their garden centre.
