About the vendor
Direct Organics Plus LTD.
Cawston, BC
Organics Plus is an organic produce cooperative in Cawston, BC. Every grower in the coop is certified by SOOPA (Similkameen Okanagan Organic Producers Association). About 60% of the farms in Cawston are organic. Traditionally, these growers have produced apricots, peaches, plums, pears, and apples but now that they have their own packing/storage facility, they are branching out into more ground crops, especially melons and tomatoes. These crops grow very well in the soils and summer climate of the Cawston area. DOP members work closely together to ensure their products are marketable and to protect one another against loss. For example, if one farmer’s crop is destroyed, that farmer is still able to claim the poundage and receive payment. As such, each grower shares in the profits and losses.
