Are you organic?
We are a conventional farm, not an organic farm. Although we do our best to use organic-based sprays, we will use pesticides and fungicides when we deem absolutely necessary. We do carry produce from farms that are either certified organic or spray-free on occasion. Anything that we grow we wouldn't think twice about feeding to our own children. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to send us an email! The same with our vendors. All product descriptions are thorough.
Why does your fruit/veg not look like grocery store fruit?
Fruit/Veg you find in the grocery store has most likely been sprayed with unnatural chemicals to preserve its shelf life or colour, which can also negatively affect the taste. As we do not spray for this, our fruit can have bumps and bruises that come from shipping, handling, and touching other fruit. Just because a peach looks imperfect, doesn't mean it is not delicious and nutritious. That being said, if you receive fruit that is damaged, moldy, or doesn't taste right, don't hesitate to let us know (we have a 100% guarantee on all of our products).
Is your fruit GMO?
No, we do not have GMO fruit, nor will ever carry it. That includes the GMO non-browning apple.
Do you purchase from wholesalers?
We do not purchase from wholesalers, even if we are short on supply of a product. If we do not have a quality source from a local farmer that has a surplus, we put a close to the season of that particular food.
Does your mom actually pack fruit/veg?
You heard it right! Our lovely mother Helena actually picks and packs fruit/veg that we offer for 12 hours each day during the summer season on our family-owned farm in Oliver, BC.
