To say we have all been living in challenging times would be an understatement.We would like to extend our thanks to you for supporting our farms as we continuously adapt to new measures and work hard to serve and connect with our communities in safe ways.
There has been a renewed drive for supporting local, and it is much appreciated. It is heartening to know that folks are still finding ways to make agriculture a viable life’s work, and that communities are showing up for them. Our goal remains the same: to bring healthy, wholesome, and sustainably produced local food and farm products to your home.
Local is truly what makes BC Farm Fresh producers unique. We will continue to work hard to bring you more farm products and experiences in a safe way this year; be sure to visit BCFarmFresh.com for a detailed calendar of happenings. We come to your neighbourhoods through your local Farmers Markets (see page 13) and Community Supported Agriculture programs (CSAs). BC Farm Fresh farmers want to get to know you, and we want you to get to know your farmer.
You can also connect with our members online, as many farms share their day-to-day updates on Facebook and Instagram. We collect these posts @BCFarmFresh to help you discover fresh harvests, recipes, and agri-adventures near you.
We realize now, more than ever, that it is important to maintain and expand local production, processing, and storage to enhance local food security.
We hope you will spend some time with BC Farm Fresh growers and producers in the coming season, and we look forward to connecting you with the freshest food you can find.
