Organic Week – Close to Home Organics

This week is Organic week so, the perfect opportunity to feature Close to Home Organics as our Vendor Spotlight this week. They are one of very few certified local Organic Farms and are based out of the beautiful Glen Valley.

Close to Home Organics is a family run business that produces all of their crops using only the most sustainable practices. You will find the Farmers selling their abundant and delicious produce at Farmer’s Markets as well as through a Community Shared Agriculture Program. Their variety of seasonal vegetables and fruit is certified organic by the BC Association for Regenerative Agriculture. Based upon six years experience of farming at Glen Valley Organic Farm, Paige Dampier and Chris Bodnar started Close to Home Organics back in 2011 pledging to grow only the healthiest, most flavourful and environmentally sustainable food!

Did you know…

The Close to Home Farmers are Solar Farmers? All of the energy consumed from Close to Home’s crops comes from one source: the sun. The green leaves of their plants are each tiny solar panels that collect energy and nutrients which become available to us as the food we eat. That means we have an amazing abundance of energy available to us, provided we employ a set of practices that is sustainable well into the future…awesome!!

Come to the Market and grab your weekly produce from Close to Home’s booth.
