Come and learn about organic farming! Our farm is located in the Fraser Canyon in a beautiful, natural, off grid setting surrounded by wilderness and mountains and is very unique. We have been farming organically since 1985. We are a family farm working together to grow quality produce for the Vancouver markets. We eat tasty vegetarian meals, and love to swim and play music as well as working very hard.
We are certified organic with NOOA. We use cover crops, organic fertilizer, rock dust, worm castings for soil enhancement. We use mostly open pollinated, organic seed.
We accept people from April through October. It is well worth coming to see our beautiful farm and spending time working with us.
