About Thimbleberry Farm

thimbleberry farm, terrace, farmers market

Thimbleberry Farm is located in Terrace, BC. Established in 2016, owners and operators Vicky and Chris manage a market garden, pastured poultry, layer flock, and meat rabbits. As a no-till, no-pesticide/herbicide farm, Vicky and Chris integrate the farm’s different operations to create a healthy and diverse agro-ecosystem that produces nutritious, ethically grown food for their community.

Vicky and Chris practice small-scale, intensive farming. They would like to show people that a lot of food can be produced on a small acreage using little mechanization. They feel their operation is an example of a very accessible way to farm.
