Fresh Organic Food & Local Farmers
Seasonal Harvest Delivered to Your Door!
Farm Box Manifesto
We are hearing from you that our community wants REAL FOOD – food grown with love, not chemicals, by people who share our love of the earth and desire for health & vitality.
By choosing REAL FOOD you are helping to reduce CO2 emissions, build top soil, eliminate toxic pesticides from our lakes and rivers, save the bees, prevent animal cruelty, and support our small-scale organic farmers, who, by doing what they do, are true stewards of our Earth and of our Future!
Yes, by the simple act of choosing REAL FOOD, you are doing all of this because you are participating in a food chain that feeds the earth and the community as much as it feeds your body.

Did you know not all the produce you see at the Farmers Market supports local farmers? Some markets have a KM restriction on where produce can come from, but none in the Bow Valley do. It's obvious with fruits like citrus and mango (that simply don't grow in our climate) but it takes a little more investigating with things like field tomatoes and corn. Want to support local? Ask questions, know where your food is coming from and get familiar with eating seasonally. We have a diverse bounty of organic, local produce that supports Canadian farmers - there is no need to look abroad this time of year!
