General information
About the vendor
Lund's Organic Farm
Innisfail, AB
Lund's Organic Farm is a certified organic family farm located 1.5 km. Northwest of the town of Innisfail. It has been certified organic since 1988 (since 1993 in current location). We grow a variety of vegetables, with the emphasis on cold weather crops such as carrots, spinach, lettuce, and several potato varieties. Cool weather crops grow very well in cool, shady Central Alberta. Most summers here are too short and cold for heat loving crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and corn. Our farmland is mostly gently rolling hills with an abundance of natural shelterbelts and waterways. The soil is rich and black, and is 12-24 inches deep. It was used as pasture before we took over the farm, and therefore has never been sprayed with chemicals of any sort.

Soil fertility is maintained with the use of various varieties of grain. At the moment, we run a 3 year rotation. We grow grains for two years, plow them into the ground and grow vegetables the third year.

We have set aside wildlife refuge for native birds and mammals to help control insects and rodents in crops, and also to maintain a balanced farm ecosystem. All waterways are protected, as the are nesting sites for many native birds.

Certified organic vegetables have been produced in accordance with specific guidelines and organic standards, as established by the certifying agency. Each year, our farm is inspected by an independent inspector to verify that it meets, or exceeds the standards.
