Beryle's Organic Paradise
Farming organically since 1998, Beryle Oravec is a 'hands on' kind of lady. Each week during harvest time, she makes the trek from her farm in Oliver BC to Discovery Organics herself. “Everytime I let someone else drive my van, they smash it.” She says if Johnny Wray, her farm’s manager and her own special sweetheart, ever left Beryle’s Organic Paradise, she’d be “hooped”.
When asked why she chooses to farm organically, Beryle quips “Well, I don’t like poison and because I have kids who will walk right out into the field, pick something and eat it, dirt and all.” Beryle has dedicated over 5 years to SOOPA, a BC organic certifying body, and she now sits on their board of directors. She believes that organic is the right way to go, especially for small farms. She’s expanding on her crop mix, this year trialing baby eggplants, sweet peppers, and lemon cucumbers.
