I am the owner of Our Farm. We are a market garden located just next to the city limits of Saskatoon in the Hamlet of Furdale. We farm on 2 acres of land. We are Certified Organic growers and we grow 40 types of veggies with over 130 different varieties in total. We sell our veggies through CSA subscriptions, in our own farmer’s market we hold on Saturdays in the summer/fall on Broadway and 8th Street in Saskatoon, on line ordering, to a few restaurants and also to some resellers.
So what is the story of Our Farm? I had a career in selling wholesale textiles for 14 years, then I had a career selling real estate for 14 years, then I felt it was time to do something that was really important, and what could be more important than food? – so 2015 we started Our Farm. But why? And why Organic? After some health issues we started taking what we eat much more seriously and it started us on a search for healthy and TASTY food. I have always loved good food, and as we transitioned our diet to what we felt was a healthier diet – a more plant-based diet, we realized that taste was lacking in so many of the veggies we could buy. And we wanted food that did not contribute to health risks. “Our Farm”...it started with wanting tasty food. And wanting nutritious food. Food without chemical sprays and chemical fertilizers. Food that is non-GMO. Out of this “Our Farm” was born in the heart of the prairies in Saskatoon.
