About Us Growers of mixed vegetables since 1997 90% of our product is direct marketed Vendor at Pembroke Farmers'Market mid-June to thanksgiving since 1998
Practices (our standards for raising or making our products) We are not organic but limit chemical use wherever and whenever possible. Mechanical weed control, insect traps, crop rotation, cover and green manure cropping are employed. Inputs are purchased, if available, from local (Renfrew County) suppliers who employ local people and buy from local producers.
Supporting local, sustainable agriculture is so important to us and the OVFC makes it remarkably easy to do so. It’s wonderful that we have the chance to reconnect with the community that we know and love even though we’re no longer living right in the valley. The Co-op is one of the things we miss most about Renfrew County, so I was more than delighted to learn that you were adding a pick-up location in Ottawa.
