The Homestead Organic Farm

Certified Organic Produce and Hay

Farming in Peachland, British Columbia, we grow organic veggies, herbs, and the odd bit of fruit for a weekly home-delivery program, the Penticton Farmers' Market, various grocery stores, and local chefs. If you're a horse or cow with a discerning palate for only the choicest Okanagan hay, we can help you out too. 

 

 

Coming soon: Registration for our 2017 Veggie box program

In 2017, our weekly veggie box program will very likely expand to include Kelowna, Westbank, and Peachland, supplied with veggies from our new farm lease in Kelowna. 

More info down below, but: each week between June 1 and October 31, we deliver our organic veggies, as well as other goodies like eggs and bread, to homes and workplaces.  We offer lots of flexibility: you can sign up for an automatic delivery every week, or to receive one only for the weeks that you choose. In either case, the orders are fully customizable. 

Registration will open in late January or so; for now, we invite you to fill out the form below if you have questions or would like us to contact you when registration opens.

I don’t think I can stress the importance of the Homestead veggies in our lives. Both my health concerns and James’ aversion to foods are resolved after our experience with the Homestead veggies. Our guests are amazed at the flavors in our meals and they rave about them with our friends. The Homestead Veggie program is awesome, not to mention having two pretty cool people run the farm that we respect really helps as well! The weekly newsletter makes the whole program feel like a community and my family and I are happy to be a part of it. Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
