Nestled against a mountain backdrop in Spallumcheen BC, Fresh Valley Farms is a Certified Organic farm (NOOA Cert #04-346) made up of two quarter sections . Steve Meggait and his partner Annelise Grube-Cavers raise 100% grass fed, and finished, beef, pasture-raised chicken and turkey, as well as heritage pork, using all natural, regenerative systems, with an emphasis on animal welfare. All of the feed brought on to the farm (for poultry and pork) is Certified Organic, and much of it is locally grown. Our pasture-raised poultry is certified organic as of May, 2020, and our pork is transitional organic, with the first certified organic pork being finished in November, 2020.
All of the animals at Fresh Valley Farms have ample access to pasture, and areas to forage, and to explore. Farming with nature is an important part of how nutrient-dense, pasture-raised meats are produced on this farm while maintaining habitats for wild fauna, and improving the plant population and diversity. This means frequently rotating animals through pasture.
With their two young children in tow you will find Steve and Annelise working on various farm projects, always with a focus on sustainability and feeding the local community.
