We are a small market garden, consisting of four separate gardens and two small green houses. Nestled on the Upper Longbeach Road on Nelson's North Shore and near the Harrop ferry, our garden is on one acre of gently sloped south facing land above the shores of Kootenay Lake. This site was the original homestead on Long Beach Road and has been our family home for 30 years. As our family grew so did our gardens. About 15 years ago we decided to market some of the extra produce. It soon became evident that we could help to fill a need for locally grown produce.
We now sell to Kootenay Co-op, a retail farmer`s market (Elllison`s market), as well as Restaurants including The Outer Clove, The Red light, Jagannatha Express, Mountain trek health and fitness spa & retreat center and families in the Nelson area.
We grow many different edibles, trying new ones and techniques each year. We are interested to hear from our customers about their needs and appreciate suggestions .
Raised beds and relay planting allows us to grow a good variety of fruit, vegetables & herbs in a limited space. Because of the small size of our gardens we are able to do 95% of the work with hand tools. This enables us to further reduce our carbon foot print.
