Are you organic?
Yes, we use organic and sustainable farming methods. Practices such as yearly rotating crops, under sowing and overwintering cover crops to prevent soil erosion and nutrient leaching and recycling animal and plant wastes through composting are some of the ways we live out organic agriculture. We don’t use any chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides. A lot of what we do is simply trying to make plants healthy and happy. We look for varieties that do well in our climate and the times within the year that each plant prefers.
We farm in a manner that seeks to work with and alongside nature, rather than fighting against nature or trying to dominate it. Our hope is to lighten the load on the earth and contribute to the well-being of all creation. To this end we seek to cultivate food that is both healthy for the eater and equitable for all those that contributed to its growth, from the microorganisms to the farmers on their knees in the dirt.
We have not applied for organic certification, as we sell all our vegetables direct to the consumer. You are welcome to ask us about any of our farming methods – we welcome your questions.
Can I come to the farm to buy vegetables?
Perhaps. We don’t have a roadside farm stand or store. While we rarely sell vegetables via random drop-bys, if you are interested in picking up bulk amounts of a certain vegetable(s) from the farm, please contact us and we’ll see what we can work out.
Do you sell at any farmer’s markets in Chilliwack?
No. Unfortunately we haven’t found a farmer’s market in Chilliwack that is sustainable for us to be at as a vendor.
To buy our vegetables in Chilliwack please look into signing up for our Chilliwack CSA, available for pick up at the farm in Greendale. Thanks!
Can I come volunteer on the farm?
If you are interested in volunteering, contact us and we’ll see what the possibilities are. Thanks!
Can I come see the farm?
Sure. Give us a ring and we’ll see if we can make something work.
