General Description: We are a small organic farm located in the mountains in British Columbia. We have been farming organically for 28 years. Our farm is a family farm, with our three children now moved back and working with us. The area we live in is semi arid ,just the beginning of the dry belt. Lytton is Canadas hot spot making it an ideal growing location. As far as buffer zones go we have a most perfect place as there is really no commercial growing going on so no contamination to worry about. We grow a variety of vegetables and fruits we sell at Vancouver farmers markets. We are committed to open pollinated and heirloom varieties. We love what we do and would love to share our farm with folks who want to learn and work towards a fruitful season.
