Our hearts still belong to the small scale growers, family farms and agricultural co-ops. We have visited dozens of farms across B.C., working with growers to see them move to larger and more financially sustainable operations.
We feel encouraged by the impressive increase in consumer demand for certified organic fruit and vegetables. We also acknowledge that we can’t grow our own food year-round. Even more so now, as our climate changes, no harvest is a safe bet.
Over the years, we have extended our relationships with small scale farmers to include farms down the Pacific Coast, through Washington, Oregon and California, then on to Mexico and South America. Together, this network of growers keep us all fed, year round, and for this we are grateful.
