About the vendor
Olera Farms became organic in 1986 and has since been functioning as a biodiverse farm and one of the province’s largest organic egg production business. One of the aims of organic agriculture is to create healthy balanced environments where agricultural crops and livestock work together to be a sustainable ecosystem. At Olera Farms, the chickens produced eggs; they roamed through the raspberry patches and vegetable fields, weeding and cleaning up the harvest as they foraged for food; and their manure was plenty for the needs of Olera Farms and other neighbouring organic farms.
When Olera Farms began operating as an organic egg producer there was no market infrastructure to support the organic egg market. Over the years, Reid and other organic egg producers created this, spending thousands of dollars on a federally-inspected egg grading station and developing distribution lines and a market for their unique product.
