About the vendor
Snow Farm Snow Farm
Delta, BC
"I believe we have the largest celery farm, including the non-organic farms, in all of BC," says Susan Snow. The Snow family has been producing over 85 different organic vegetables for 9 years. They have a unique arrangement with the Municipality of Delta and the Delta Wildlife Trust to lease 60 acres of prime farmland with the proviso that the land is farmed organically. The Snows also grow rotational crops (parsley instead of potatoes, for instance) within neighboring organic farms. The 40 acres farmed this way provides a cleansing break for pests and diseases and gives the Snows more room to farm.
