Trevor and Debbie Evans have been farming organically in the Similkameen Valley since 1978. One of the founding organic farming families in the area, Trevor recalls a time when his conventional neighbours laughed at the idea of growing without chemicals and pesticides. “They called us worm farmers,” he explains.
Now the Similkameen Valley is considered the organic growing capital of Canada, being home to more organic farmers than any other small region in the country. After more than a decade running a farmer run packing house, a few years ago Trevor and Debbie decided to step back to focus on their own Sundance Farms. Though tomatoes were their first love, Trevor and Debbie began growing tree fruits in the early 1980’s and now cultivate thirteen varieties of apples, six types of pears as well as Apricots and Peaches.
From his days helping found SOOPA, one of BC’s organic certifiers, to mentoring the folks who work the farm with him, Trevor and Debbie and their family are committed to fostering organics in their home province.
