About the farm: The two businesses — Close to Home Organics and Earth Apple Organic Farm — joined forces and collectively and conveniently named themselves after the land cooperative each business farms on, Glen Valley Organic Farm. Our vision is to provide an outstanding selection of organic vegetables, berries and fruit each week throughout each season to all of our subscribers in communities residing in the Lower mainland. We farm alongside each other as members of the Glen Valley Organic Farm Cooperative (GVOFC).
GVOFC is a land co-operative in Abbotsford, BC that stewards a beautiful 50 acre property with farmland, forest, wildlife and natural waterways that flow into the Salmon migrating waters of the mighty Fraser River, just footsteps from our fields. GVOFC has overseen the farming of this land since 1999. We acknowledge the traditional ancestral and unceded territory of the Kwantlen First Nation and Matsqui First Nation, both of the Stό:lō Nation. The Stό:lō people have lived in the Fraser Valley for 10,000 years and we acknowledge the traditional territory in which we reside and grow food.
Community Shared Agriculture programs offer a unique relationship between farmers and consumers. By purchasing a subscription at the start of the farming season, consumers support their farmers by helping cover the costs of growing. In return, the farmer provides a share of the harvest each week — a diverse selection of the freshest produce available. Both the consumer and the farmer share the risk of the season. The size of each week's share is determined, in part, by the growing conditions of the season. To learn more about our CSA program, click here.
