About

We’re committed to farming organically and sustainably for a healthier, happier community. Our food is safe and nutritious; grown without harmful synthetic pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. We sustain the soil using techniques such as composting, cover cropping and crop rotation. Pest control is achieved through preventative measures such as screening and covering crops against pests, as well as introducing beneficial insects and micro-organisms that either attack pests or colonize plant and soil to keep pests out.

We’re certified organic by Islands Organic Producers Association (IOPA), member number 1960.

Principles and regulations of organic farming in Canada can be found on the website of Certified Organic Associations of BC (COABC) www.certifiedorganic.bc.ca
