Over the past 80 years we have harvested and cherished our relationships with local BC Farmers.
During the summer months, we will be featuring local farms and the hard working employees behind it.
Every farmer has a story, and we would like to share theirs.
THE story this month comes from our friends at
Kim's Farm in Surrey, BC.
When it comes to BC local green vegetables, Kim’s Farm should be at the top of the list. With over thirty years of experience under his belt, Kim Chow is no beginner to growing vegetables.
His farm in Cloverdale is home to a variety of lettuces, Asian greens, spinach, kale, carrots, green onions, and herbs. With an impressive 150+ acres of land, Kim and his team are able to supply these healthy greens to families across the province.
However, one cannot be fooled by the size of Kim’s land. To him, this still remains a family farm. Many of his employees have been part of the team from the beginning, witnessing his children grow up and seeing the farm flourish.
Kim, an advocate for local farming, expressed his passion for the industry, emphasizing the importance of passing on the practice of hard work, patience and perseverance. A lesson he feels is lost in the hustle and bustle of our lives today.
As we hop into Kim’s truck and drive around his fields, the message is clear. “Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – R. Collier
