We eat what we grow first, then we eat local food in season when possible.
We grow and make as much of our own food as possible. We trade micro-greens for many items and purchase from stores as little as possible.
We seek to eat how we might eat if corporate grocery stores didn’t rule the food industry and we had to eat what was actually available where we live in each season of the year. In support of that we grow microgreens to nourish ourselves and the people of the Kootenays and Okanagan Valley year-round. We also grow a variety of vegtables, berries and fruit in season as well as engage in winter gardening in unheated greenhouses in the off season.
We provide laundry facilities where we wash ecologically with cold water.
We endeavour to have our farm run as much as possible off limited solar power, we intend to be very conscious of unnecessary power usage, please turn off lights when not in use.
