ABOUT Mara Valley Produce

We are a Certified Organic farm, growing a variety of vegetables on 20 acres, including field and greenhouse crops. Our produce is available year-round to wholesale distributers, food processors, organic box programs, restaurants, and backcountry ski lodges. Our local delivery ranges from Kelowna to Revelstoke. We supply Urban Harvest organic food delivery service in Kelowna and Shuswap Organics. You can find our produce at multiple grocery stores including Salmon Arm Askews, Vernon Nature’s Fare, and Enderby IGA. We also supply the Shuswap Food Action Society, Vernon’s Good Food Box, and Nature Delivered with vegetable additions to their school lunch program and family food boxes. You can meet us in person at Grindrod and Hills Garlic Festivals each fall.

The farm is located on a beautiful quiet stretch of the Shuswap River. We have a small but enthusiastic team and we all enjoy what we do! Perks of the job include abundant delicious vegetables and fruit. Our farm is located on a quiet road surrounded by mountains and nature on the Shuswap River. You can swim and cool off in the heat of the summer.

We cannot provide on-farm accommodation, but are located 20 minutes from Salmon Arm, 15 minutes from Enderby, 20 minutes from Sicamous, and 5 minutes from Grindrod.

We grow quality vegetables and berries that are certified organic by the North Okanagan Organic Association.

Our vision is to work with nature, our community, and our customers to foster a bright future for organic farming where we live. In an age where most goods come from far away, we value connecting people with high quality locally grown food. Our crop care, harvest, and storage techniques ensure our produce is flavourful when it reaches the table. We want people to understand that buying local and organic means not only getting great food but also supporting local biodiversity.

We hold respect for the soil, the local ecosystem and its rhythms. We value our neighbors, customers, and employees. Farming keeps us humble, teaches us patience, and rewards us each season
