Our farmland is on the traditional, unceded territories of the Sinixt peoples in the heart of the stunning Slocan Valley. Nestled on the banks of the Slocan River, our beautiful 27-acre farm offers scenic mountain views, heritage buildings, a private venue site for events, and a large open field of specialty-cut flowers and delicious fruits. We offer closed-loop, farm-to-table, certified organic products grown and made right here (with love!) in our beloved Kootenays.
Our little farm family consists of Lana Braun, the “farmer-florist”, Brad Braun, the irrigation specialist and fixer/engineer of all things, our lovely dog Finnegan, and the student workers who generously help us out during summers.
For Lana the farm has been a true homecoming endeavour. Lana was born and raised in the Kootenays, and had been missing it dearly while she was away. Lana and Brad bought the farm in 2013 and set out to live their dream life. Both Lana and Brad are interested in learning and experimentation. They also both love the farming lifestyle, being outside all the time, and skiing in the winter.
Our farm has been certified organic since 2015. Our farm practices sustainable methods and firmly believes in the value of organic, ethical, fresh, and local products. We strive to have a small footprint and be as self-sufficient as possible. It is our desire to provide flowers locally and to build towards a global focus and awareness for fair-trade and organic flowers.
