About Fresh Valley Farms: This farm is made up of two quarter sections, which are a short bike ride from Armstrong, BC. The farm is a three generation endeavour (with a fourth on the way) and has two apprentices this summer. Meet all three generations and our current helping hands.
We raise livestock (pasture-raised pork and poultry), as well as growing hay and grains for feed. There are also cattle on the farm, layer hens and a garden tended primarily for on-farm use. By paying close attention to our farm’s emissions, we farm in a different way — with quality of life and positive impact on the environment both of the utmost importance. An on-farm feed mill and a mobile abattoir (built and owned by three farm partners) mean that we have additional control over the quality of our products and treatment of our animals from beginning to end. Animals here have a high quality of life, with no restriction on outdoor space, and pastures and enclosures that make use of natural features for shade, shelter and protection.
With the quickly evolving infrastructure and systems on this farm, there is always something new to see, including a new walk-in freezer and hay barn for the 2016 season.
What to Bring: Food to share with the group, your own plate, cup & utensils.
