a bit about our farm

Our history of growing reaches back into the early 1980’s in the Village of Anmore from which we grew into our Maple Ridge Farm. 
In 2009, Erik graduated in Agriculture and we soon realized that his ambitions in farming would not fit into our Maple Ridge farm so we found a new location for him in Cawston BC, the organic capital of Canada. In 2018 we sold our Maple Ridge farm and joined him in Cawston.

Today we have the amazing soil and growing conditions of our Cawston farm, from which we offer a broad selection of fruits and vegetables. Our goal is to offer these fresh and wholesome products for your family’s table.
Our produce is now certified organic with NOOA.

Where to find our produce

We will no longer be attending markets in the lower mainland, we will be focusing on the Penticton Farmers Market starting mid June on Saturdays and the occasional trip down to the Maple Ridge, Coquitlam area with bulk sales and pick up at our farm in Cawston.
