Where to get good meat is obvious, but where should you go for veggies??? Read on...
There are lots of farms in the Okanagan and we are just listing a few of our favourites based on where they are and how tasty their veggies are! All of the farms listed here are certified organic with the North Okanagan Organic Association, same as our farm!
From North to South:
Enderberry Farms has a Harvest Box CSA that runs from June to October. It is a colourful weekly box of fresh, certified organic vegetables and berries from their farm in Grindrod, BC. They offer a Big Box and a Small Box to fit your needs and you could get an Early Bird Sign Up discount for the 2020 Harvest Box Season - 10% off if you sign up and pay in full by April 1st!
They service Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon, Salmon Arm, and Revelstoke areas.
Sign up form, all the details on the Harvest Box, photos of last year's boxes, FAQ's, and more on their website.
Pilgrim's Produce has been growing veggies, berries, and all the fruits in Armstrong for over 20 years.
Eat the freshest organic fruits and veggies through their CSA box program which will run from May to October, 2020. Learn more on their website.
Our very good friends, Sarah and Michael, have just moved to a larger farm (from their 2 acres previously to their current 15 acres) in order to grow even more veggies for you and your household! Starting with micro greens that we will soon be offering for sale on our website, 4 Elements Farm is expanding a CSA program they have been running for years.
From mid-May to to mid October you can purchase 25 weeks of delicious, certified organic veggies. 4 Elements Farm will be offering two sizes: the Lone Wolf $25/week (for couples or individuals) with 6-7 items per week, or the Wolf Pack $35/week for those with more mouths to feed (9-10 items per week).
Pick up or delivery available in Kamloops, Kelowna, Vernon, Lake Country, Westwold, and Falkland. To learn more about what is in season when and what to expect in the weekly boxes visit their website.
To save your spot email: 4Elementsfarm@gmail.com and include your name, location, and preferred box. Payments can be made via e-transfer, or check. Payments can be made either in full, or in 3 installments if needed. Please contact them with any questions!
Unearthed Farm is run by Jordan Marr, his partner, Vanessa, and a few invaluable employees. This year Unearthed is launching a home delivery service where you order what you want for your kitchen to be delivered weekly to your door. This delivery service currently runs from Kelowna to Naramata, with potential expansion based on sign-ups. Since there is no obligation to purchase there is no downside to adding your name to his list. You will simply be kept in the loop as to what's on offer week to week, and you even have the option of adding a select variety of Fresh Valley Farms meats to your order for home delivery. Pictured below is a photo I've used a few times recently: Jordan and his kids, ready to attack some roasted veg.
All farmers really appreciate your support during these different times! If you have a favourite source for delicious food for your household, share that information with friends and neighbours! The farmers appreciate it.
