A country boy from rural Ontario, Jeff hails from a strong farming family. He grew up raising beef on his family's farm. As a boy he spent his summers slinging hay bales and harvesting corn by hand.
A carpenter by trade, Jeff is responsible for bringing Stacey's dream store to life. Together with the kids, Jeff cares for the animals on the farm.
Jeff is passionate about preserving endangered pig breeds and reducing the incredible amount of waste in our food system.
Jeff has been crucial to the development of our neighbourhood farming co-op which helps our elderly neighbours to stay in their homes by maintaining their farm status while keeping the land productive.
He also volunteers with the Small Scale Meat Producer's Association and the Sheep Federation in research and advocacy for small farmers.
An avid outdoorsman, if Jeff isn't farming you'll find him in the bush or on the lake, fishing with our son.
When Stacey moved to Kitsilano to jokingly meet her husband, she had no idea she'd go from a suit and stilettos in a Robson Street office tower to gumboots and chicken poop, but here she is!
Stacey grew up near the ocean in Victoria, where she earned her BFA in Visual Art and English. Despite trading her canvases for compost, Stacey still paints and writes. Her paintings are available in the farm shop and she puts her writing chops to work on the Weekly Fresh Sheet as well as on her Substack, Slow Folk.
Stacey has been a Certified Master Organic Gardener since 2008 and teaches holistic, deep-organic gardening at the farm.
Stacey is a passionate advocate for local food systems and the soil. She has spoken at town halls for the Agriculture Land Commission, protested against monopolies in agriculture and worked with local government to protect our soil, water and the ALR.
When she's not running the farm shop, you'll find her making or listening to live music, swimming laps or cheering her head off at her daughter's soccer and lacrosse games.
