Terms of the investment were not disclosed, but Berkshire says its average investment ranges from $50 million to $500 million.

"Farm Boy's stores deliver a unique fresh and friendly shopping experience compared to other food retailers … the company is very well positioned for future growth," said Berkshire managing director Chris Hadley in a statement.

The grocer was launched in Cornwall in 1981 and added its 13th store last month when it opened a new location in Kingston.

Farm Boy CEO Jeff York said earlier this year that the chain planned to grow to 15 stores, but offered no timeline.
