Earth Apple Organic Farm was established in 2011 and is based at Glen Valley Organic Farm Co-op in Abbotsford, BC as of January 2016. Our roots quite literally are earth apples or les pommes de terre, but we’ve since expanded, growing over 50 different varieties of fruits and vegetables, herbs, cut flowers and raising hens and ducks for eggs. We cultivate over 6 acres of land and pasture-raise our hens and ducks.
Our mission is to produce fresh, organic, nutritious food for local communities in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley with low ecological impact and fair wage standards. We love what we do, which is evident in the beautiful organic produce we offer through our CSA program, Farmers Markets and in Fine Dining Restaurants in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

Shirlene established Earth Apple Farm in 2011 and has slowly grown the farm from a one acre incubator plot to a 6 acre fruit, vegetable and egg farm!
Apprentices join the farm each year to learn about everything from field management to running a business. This year in 2018 we have Tara Staples, Romain Gilbert and Greg Kamphuis joining us and we are so delighted to have them join the team!
