  • WE ARE: Organic. Local. Fresh. Sustainable.

     

    Grown Here Farms is on a mission. To inspire and reconnect you with your food, your community, and to honour our planet.

     

    Grown Here Farms embodies a wholesome, sustainable lifestyle in every stage of our cultivation practice. Raised from honest beginnings, we believe in growing delicious products naturally, using only what mother nature gave us to grow our vegetables, microgreens, preserves, and teas.

     

    Conceived from a desire to get back to our roots, Grown Here Farms is proud to make positive impacts on the environment by growing fresh, wholesome food that reflects a conscious lifestyle. We don’t partake in conventional agricultural practices. No pesticides, no chemicals; our products are planted biologically in the soil and grown in natural sunlight and water collected from our rooftop.

     

    Best of all, we are building our business sustainably, working towards a Net-Zero Carbon Footprint from seed-to-sale, as well as a business model of Planet – People – Profit, an ethical, triple bottom line that focuses on remaining accountable for our community and environment. For quality, fresh, organic food that comes from conscious hands and honest beginnings, for a healthier lifestyle that makes a difference.

    We have one planet. Which is why our products are raised with care, cultivated with love, grown here.

  • Joni's Journey

    My mom, Joni, knew the secret to a great jelly was fresh ingredients and lots of love. Every Christmas, she would spend hours making delicious pepper jelly for my family.

     

    In 2016, my mom lost her battle with ALS. Our preserves line is dedicated to her memory and keeping her tradition alive. With this in mind, we are donating partial proceeds from each jar of our preserves to the ALS Society of BC.

  • OUR VALUES

    We believe that social and environmental responsibility should be the foundation of every organization. That’s why we founded Grown Here Farms on 4 simple, sustainable concepts to form our philosophy.

    FRESH

    Our products are grown sustainably and hand-raised with care by small lot farmers. There is never any questioning where your food came from. From seed to sale, farm to table, every item from Grown Here Farms reflects wholesome, fresh ingredients.

    ORGANIC

    At Grown Here Farms, the word “organic” is not just a buzzword. It’s a lifestyle. Our products are all grown in a way that promotes the sustainable health of our planet. We are a certified organic farm that believes in maintaining an environmental and social responsibility to the environment, our community, and ourselves. We have one body and one planet that we all call home. Let’s make sure we take care of it.

    CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION

    Everyone leaves a footprint. It’s unavoidable. But everyone can help reduce the weight of their steps, whether as individuals, a community, or business. At Grown Here Farms, sustainable business is more than a bottom line: it’s about contributing to balance. We incorporate a business model that embodies regionalized production and globalized distribution. It means we team with small, family run farms that practice sustainability, and distribute products as sustainably as possible to help support local farms while maintaining our responsibility to our planet.

    FLAVOUR

    Our range of organic products are fresh and organic; you can taste the difference in every bite. We don’t take part in traditional agricultural practices, which means you get fresh food with a well-rounded flavour profile, one that isn’t altered using pesticides or chemicals. You eat wholesome food that contains zero additives, leaves you feeling good, connected, and like you made an impact.
