We use seed from our own, saved stock or purchased from certified organic seed suppliers (as locally as possible) which are recognized as Open Source Seed Company Partners. No seed is genetically modified, patented or treated with pesticides or fungicides.

Certified Local

Our vegetables are certified organic by Pro-Cert Organic Systems under their Local Organic Program. We are inspected semi-annually by an accredited inspector who verifies that we are following the Canadian Organic Standards and only employing Permitted Substances. This third party verification of our practices is your assurance that we are delivering on our promise to only provide nutritious food grown in healthy soil and without chemicals or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). For more on our farming practices, check here.

Each year a portion of the garden is taken out of production and put into cover crops to nourish the soil and build a healthy, environment for next year’s crops.
