About the vendor
Mans Organics (formerly Noble Spuds) is a certified organic farm, owned and operated by Henk and Rita Mans along with their son, Andrew, and his wife Denise who joined the farm in 2012.
The farm is located near Coaldale, Alberta. They started farming in 1994 and in 2003 began the transition to organic farming as they felt it was the reponsible way to produce safe and healthy food. Since 2007 they have grown certified organic crops such as red and yellow onions, shallots and garlic which are grown in rotation with alfalfa and wheat.
In 2012 they began the year-long process of building their first greenhouse and now grow tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers as well as some field crops such as melons, squash and corn.
