About The Farm
Puddle Produce has always operated with two goals in mind: growing local produce that is both sustainable and affordable. It does this by using zero chemical inputs or applications, but keeping costs (and prices) competitive, and growing exactly what customers want. We also believe in learning and doing whatever we can to grow responsibly, both for the customer and the environment, and being 100% transparent along the way. As of 2019, the farm is transitioning to certified organic, but won't have official certified organic status until 2020. If you ever have any questions about farm practices, or want to visit the farm, please let us know.
In the fall of 2016, Puddle Produce transitioned from urban Williams Lake to rural Soda Creek. It is now situated on a unique 70 acre property on the Fraser River where it can have much more product variety and biodiversity. The property has been used as a market garden in the past, as well as for boarding horses. Complete with a year-round spring, a variable ecosystem, and existing infrastructure perfect for a biointensive farm operation, Puddle Produce Farm is now ready to expand its CSA program and sell to more markets.
Puddle Produce has been owned and operated by Brianna van de Wijngaard since 2013. As an horticulturalist and entrepreneur, she drafted the business plan, planted the seeds, and grew the farm to where it is today, with the help of MANY friends, family, and supporters.
