We had such a great response on the article in the Chilliwack Times. For who missed this article click here.

A big thank you to Paul Henderson, who wrote this article and came to the farm.

I understand  it was quite a rush… So to give you some more time : You will be getting the early bird discount untill March 15th, 2015.

Share this with friends and family. We are hoping for 50 boxes, to be able to support a family here in the community for a whole season. Our hope of giving back to a community that supports local agriculture.

Thank you  everyone who signed up!

Your farmers for 2015.

Let me introduce our fulltime crew for this season.

Kate, she has been with us since last year, and so happy to have her this year again.

Elliot, our new crew member, worked at an other farm in the lower mainland and you will see him at the Vancouver Farmers Markets too. (He is Kate’s Partner)

Bruce from last year  will return part time for 2015. Until his own business takes off.

A new apprentice is missing, Shawn, student at the UFV Chilliwack will join us late April.

And not to forget the berry picking crew we will have. We have a lot of great pickers who return year after year ( like Michelle and John) and a lot of new ones.

If you would like to join the picking crew, send us an email, and we will provide you the info.

Let us be your farmer!

We all want to know our family doctor, or our accountant. Let us be your farmer and you will know where your food came from, how it is grown. Everyone should know where their food comes from. We are fortunate to be able to grow a wide variety of vegetables in the lowermainland.

An impressive trend in the food movement has been for eaters to connect directly with local farmers. These connections have served to both empower farmers in the management of their livelihoods and to empower people in the nourishment of their bodies.

One of the ways to connect is through a relationship called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). This helps people develop a closer connection to a specific farm and get a feel for the seasonality and flavour of that farm.Yep, each farm has a unique flavour, and variety of vegetables they grow.

We have still openings for the CSA, especially in Chilliwack. Sign up for fresh Local Vegetables for 20 weeks in summer. For Vancouver there is room for some too, pick up at Saturday Markets (Trout Lake) and Wednesday Mainstreet Market. Still we have early sign up discount!

Your membership will support a family in need!

Photo 2015-02-03, 10 34 57 PMI am not very good in writing.. But I would like to express what Brian and I feel that we would like to do.

Brian started in 2007 with selling just garlic, at just one market. Today we are selling our produce at  5 Vancouver farmers markets, and many acres and greenhouses added. It has been a steep learning curve. Now all the land we own will be in production this year. Excited to go local with our CSA. We are very fortunate that we are able to do what we love to do. Growing organic, healthy, honest food!

Membership applications are coming in,  thank you for your support! We would like to take the idea of support  a little further. I typed so many times the letters CSA, Community Supported Agriculture… What if we could do a ASC??  Why not Agriculture Supports Community…??!!

Here is our vision:

We decided that we will support a family in need with a membership for one season for free. A family in Chilliwack/Yarrow/Cultus Lake will receive 20 weeks  a weekly box of fresh organic produce. But we need your help;  we need a minimum of 50 members to be able to support a family. Help us to support a family with local organic produce, for 20 weeks. So please spread the word…  Make this happen!
