Meet Our Farmers-Cherryvale!

Cherryvale Organic Farm is a certified organic farm that produces everything from potatoes, greens and veggies to flour, herbs and fruit. We are currently working on installing a stone mill, and will soon be milling our own Buckwheat, Rye and Spelt. We have also begun planting fruit trees, shrubs and vines, and plan to have a variety of fruit available in the next couple of years. We currently produce black raspberries, gooseberries, black berries, watermelon and cateloupe. You can track our progress at www.cherryvale.ca.
We’re about growing food, but we’re also about education, research and development. We will be continually working on comprehensive educational components. Upcoming for 2011 are two workshops: Fruit Propagation and Eat Your Landscape. We also hold events each year where anyone can stop in for a tour and some taste-testing. Watch our “Events” link for details and dates.
At Cherryvale, we employ sustainable farming methods to produce local food in a healthy way. We rely on two wind turbines and four solar panels to provide the majority of the energy we require for our entire operation. Make a point of visiting us this year – you’ll be glad you did!
