ORGANIC, SEASONAL, LOCAL, PRODUCE
The backbone of great food is great ingredients. We couldn’t do what we do, if it weren’t for these farmers who dedicate their heart and labor to producing the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. We’re proud to source 100% organic, local produce grown in the good soil of our backyard of British Columbia (with the exception of fresh, organic citrus used in our dressings). Here are our farmer friends:
Located on Westham Island, Cropthorne is an organic family farm run by two sisters. From fifteen acres they produce beautiful produce, eggs, and seasonal flowers to be sold at farmers markets around the Lower Mainland.
Founded in 2009, Fresh Roots Farms transforms underutilized urban plots into beautiful gardens and farms. In 2013 Fresh Roots worked with the Vancouver School Board to develop Schoolyard-Market Gardens. This program creates commercially productive educational farms on school grounds in the city.
Shalefield Organic Gardens
Just passed Cultus Lake, in Columbia Valley, Brian operates nine acres of land. Shalefield operates based on biodynamic organic standards, the oldest non-chemical agricultural movement.
Sole Food Street Farms
Sole Food transforms vacant plots of land within Vancouver into spaces of agricultural and social growth. Their mission is to provide employment for members of the Downtown Eastside and grow artisan quality produce.
Located at UBC, this farm produces amazing organic food, while allowing future farmers to learn and further their agricultural knowledge. They engage with the communities around them to harness a sustainable growing city. Check out their events
