SPUD.ca sources produce from certified organic growers whenever possible and from as close to home as possible. The current growing season means that best of these items are grown locally right now, in and around the Lower Mainland of BC.
Most of these farms will be right around the Fraser River, from Delta out to Chilliwack, but some also come from the Pemberton area. This means the farms these items are sourced from are located within the SPUD Vancouver delivery area.
