Our focus is on heirloom and open-pollinated varieties and local seed sources. We never use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides in our
growing practices. Our goal is to provide a diverse mix of seasonal vegetables from week-to-week, including many familiar vegetables and some less
familiar, specialty varieties.
Below is a library of the vegetables we grow. Some variation from this is guaranteed due to seed availability, growing conditions, farmer interest and customer demand. Take a look:
Carrot: Scarlet Nantes (Dauscus carota)
This heirloom variety has been grown and adapted to North American conditions for at least 50 years. It has strong tops and delicious flavour.
Carrot: Yaya (Daucus carota)
This Nantes type carrot (blunt tips and blunt shoulders) is especially adapted to the Coastal BC climate.
Carrots: Cosmic Purple (Daucus carota)
A purple skinned carrot with orange/yellow flesh. A good one for getting kids into carrots (apparently!)
Cauliflower: Snow Crown (Brassica oleracea var. Botrytis)
This mild yet sweet cauliflower holds its flavour well into the season, and can develop a pink tinge in the heat of the summer.
Collard Greens: Champion (Brassica oleracea var. acephala)
Collards, also in the cabbage family, produce fleshy leaves as opposed to heads. Great texture and flavour can be enjoyed steamed, boiled, or stir-fried.
Collard Greens: Vates (Brassica oleracea var. viridis)
A smaller, uniformly shaped variety.
