A new partnership between Caesar’s Windsor and Kingsville farm Lee & Maria’s will see casino patrons enjoying locally grown produce.

“It is an exciting partnership that will benefit not just our farm, but our network of local farmers as well,” said Kathy Black, VP of Retail and Wholesale sales at Lee & Maria’s.

The partnership will have Lee & Maria’s provide Caesars Windsor with fresh, locally grown, in-season produce, which will be served in the numerous restaurants on their property. The food will come from Lee & Maria’s 30-acre farm, as well as from Lee & Maria’s network of over a dozen other local farmers in the Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent region.

“For our small farm, this is deal means job security for our ten delivery workers who primarily prepare and deliver bins of produce to deliver to people’s homes,” said Black. “It is great to see such a large corporation supporting local farmers.”

“Fresh and local is always preferred in our kitchens because the produce maintains its integrity and flavours when you can cut the time between harvest and cooking,” said Chef Patrick McClary. “We have the fortune of having access to a variety of incredible produce, grown just thirty minutes from our property.”
