We’re really getting into the season of peak abundance when it comes to fresh produce, and this is especially the case for BC produce. We’re so lucky to live in such a green, fertile part of the world, and we’re incredibly grateful to be able to support hardworking organic farmers who are doing their best to ensure this land stays healthy and fertile for generations to come. We only carry certified organic or local spray-free produce at Pomme because we believe it's healthier for you, and also because we believe the conscientious practices that so many organic and spray-free farmers employ are vital for the health of the environment. Local farmers we work with use a range of innovative natural growing methods, including rotating crops so that the soil is nourished naturally and is able to rest and regenerate, and using biological pest controls such as predatory wasps, bees, and ladybugs.
Over the next couple of weeks, we’re particularly excited to be receiving big, beautiful deliveries of BC peaches, blueberries, cucumbers, and tomatoes as they start hitting their perfect harvesting times, so be sure to come in and stock up on these beauties!
And if you haven’t checked out our Growers page yet, we’d warmly invite you to do so, so you can learn a bit more about some of the individual BC farms we work with, as well as our ethical international organic suppliers: http://www.pommenaturalmarket.com/our-growers/
We hope you’re having a juicy, crunchy, fresh and flavourful summer so far, enjoying the bounty from these amazing hardworking farms and farmers!
