  • Description

    Description

    We live on a small family farm in Northwestern BC. We grow for ourselves, our friends and family and any surplus for our Produce Stand. We share our knowledge with others by volunteering with our farmers' market to host Local Food Days at our elementary schools, teach garden lesson plans with another local food movement group and mentor our children's classmates in their school gardens. We believe that it is important to learn about and have a connection to local food particularly from a young age and strive to do our part to share what we know and have yet to learn.

    As outlined in the section below, Smithers is a fantastic place to visit. We enjoy travel and sharing stories about our adventures. For some help around our farm and home we would be more than willing to host visitors to our great community.
