Welcome To

Thanks for visiting! We are the Lower Mainland’s only destination for information about your local farms, the produce, fruits and meats they grow and produce, their events, workshops and classes as well as their features and attractions. Inside you will easily be able to find, sort and view these our local BC Farms by produce, farm features and attractions, an alphabetical list and by the Farm Fresh Magazine numerical listings. To make things even easier, we have setup a few different searches that allow you to search by city, farm name and by farm number.

For over 20 years, the Fraser Valley Farm Direct Marketing Association has been advocating our local BC farms, encouraging everyone to buy direct from the farm fruits and vegetables. Our organization is a strong believer in the ‘Buy Local’ movement and continually promotes our member farms through our annual 24 page, Farm Fresh Reference Guide as well as continually updating and tweaking our online presence to make it easier to find our farms’ locally grown produce and meats.
