Fresh BC corn will be heading to market in late July this year due to the record-breaking weather we’ve been enjoying. That’s why were holding our popular corn festival in late July rather than in August this year. More details to follow but you can mark down July 25 on your calendar as we’ll have truckloads of BCs best corn!

Are you concerned about the ethical treatment of animals? I know I am. It’s important to me to know that I’m buying products from farmers who have the highest standards of animal care in the industry. Vale Farms is one of those producers. Here’s a paragraph from their website: We strive to produce foods that you can confidently feed your family: wholesome products of the highest quality. Our meat products are produced the old fashioned way: outdoors, with feed that the animals were meant to eat (grass!) and no chemicals or hormones added, ever. The result is happy and healthy animals, and meat that has unbeatable flavour and texture. The health benefits of grass-fed meat will benefit your whole family! 

This week we welcome The Victoria Lavender Farm to Kerrisdale. Visit their website to learn more about this fascinating and unusual farm. All things lavender. You’ll be as I was at the versatility of this beautiful plant and flower.
