Secrest Organics – Covert Farms

Some laughed when George Covert bought this desert-like piece of land back in 1959 – but he, his son, and eventually grandson have grown Covert Farms into a cornerstone in organic farming. The family name is well known across numerous provinces with restaurateurs and grocers alike.

After three generations of Coverts managing 130+ acres of ground crops, in 2014 Gene Covert (third generation farmer) turned his focus on winemaking and leased organic food growing to Secrest Organics at Covert Farms. Terry, owner of Secrest Organics, has been leading our organics production for a number of years; we consider Terry and his family to be part of the extended Covert family.

Today Covert Farms remains a leader in quality organic fruit and vegetable growing in the Okanagan through Secrest Organics – a major shipper of fresh field tomatoes, sweet onions, sweet corn, muskmelons and table grapes. Secrest Organics at Covert Farms supplies fruit stands and major wholesalers in western Canada, while continuing the tradition of offering fresh produce to the retail public. Our goal is to support a healthy community and help grow agri-tourism in the South Okanagan.

Siri & Sons

Joe and Alma Siri are continuing a tradition of growing high quality vegetables started by Antonio Siri, Joe’s great-grandfather, an Italian immigrant. The main crops on their 180 acre farm – bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, cilantro, radishes, spinach, green onions, and four types of lettuce – “have been perfected over generations.” Everything is grown organically using sustainable farming practices.

Joe and his crew packs radishes, spinach, broccoli, onions and lettuce bound for New Seasons Markets in reusable containers instead of the industry standard disposable waxed boxes as part of the Siri’s ongoing effort to create a sustainable distribution system. The program kept 8,000 wax boxes out of the waste stream thanks to a small grant from the Clackamas County Recycling department to OGC.

Siri and Sons supplies their sumptuous spinach to Portland area schools. The farm-school connection was forged in December, 2006 by Ecotrust, a Portland nonprofit organization.
