Our Story

Jordana, Jeff, Deacon & Lydia

Welcome to our little urban farm where everyone, big and small, makes a valuable contribution!  Our little corner of the world is located semi-rurally but within the city limits of Kamloops.  Agriculture and gardens have always been a focal piece in my life and, luckily for me, Jeff became interested too!  We started our first tiny garden outside our condo while attending school in Vancouver, which allowed us to get our hands in the dirt, albeit in the midst of a big city.  With our interest piqued, in the summer of 2012 we rented a home that had a large market garden plot and grew a great garden.  That experience considerably increased our interest in market gardening.  After that summer we both read the “Market Gardener” and were hooked.  In 2013, we purchased our home, started our family and began our garden adventure.  And, as our family has expanded, so have our gardens, plans and dreams.

There are great benefits to eating local produce and it is important to us that our customers feel like they know their farmer and exactly where the food on their plate came from.  Most of all, when you eat our produce, we want it to taste like it was just picked from the garden because the truth is… it just was!

Our Philosophy

Coming from biology backgrounds, it has been important to us to really look at and evaluate different growing methods and choose the ones that we feel are most responsible and sustainable for our climate, while also producing abundant, nutritious produce.

  • All our produce is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides
  • We use compost sourced locally from Westwold View Farms
  • We have developed a drip irrigation system that minimizes water use in our semi desert area
  • We minimize the use of fossil fuels in the production of our produce.  e.g. we use unheated tunnels for all our season extension rather than heated greenhouses
Our produce is typically harvested within 24 to 48 hrs before market
All of our produce is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides
We’re right here, within Kamloops city limits

A few things we’ve learned

In a Pickle

When I decided to grow a short row of pickling cucumbers to try selling a couple of years ago, I had no idea what I was in for!  People

Marvelous Melons!

Growing up, I spent much of my summer holidays on my grandparents cattle ranch in the Kettle Valley.  We would travel to Osoyoos to shop and on the way

Find Our Produce

2018 was our first time selling at a farmer’s market. We had a bi-weekly table at the Dallas Barnhartvale Farmers’ Market (map below) and it was a blast. We plan to be back in 2019 along with many other excellent vendors.
