It only took a few years working in Northern Alberta to understand what is so beautiful and important about farming in the Kootenays. Having grown up on an orchard/greenhouse based farm it seemed only natural to build on the skills my grandmother taught me.
In 2008 Root & Vine Acres was created.
We started with one Saturday farmers’ market selling bedding plants, tomatoes and cucumbers. Since then we have bloomed into a multi-faceted 10 acre farm. We now attend several markets throughout the East and West Kootenays:
From our 2 acre market garden we offer tons of veggies, berries, grapes, tree fruits, walnuts, and 12 varieties of garlic.
Our livestock is pasture raised with a conscience. We offer a selection of Charcuterie Style pork, lamb, goat, turkey, chicken and duck. We also sell chicken and duck eggs.
For the homesteaders like us we sell weaner pigs, breeding quality hogs, feeder and breeding quality goats and sheep as well as Duck Hatching Eggs.
Farm tours are available by appointment. We are happy to accommodate school classes and community groups.
We welcome any questions about our farm, practices and sales. Please don’t hesitate to contact us!!
The last and most important thing to say… Our farm has the best family of staff. The people caring for the livestock, working the soil and the smiling faces at market are the real shining stars and the reason Root & Vine Acres thrives today.
