The Glen Valley Organic Farm Co-operative (GVOFC) is a community of individuals who have come together with the goal of sharing, owning and operating Glen Valley Organic Farm. GVOFC stewards 50 acres of fertile loam, woodland, and wetlands plus several homes and outbuildings on our farm just east of Fort Langley, BC on the south shore of the Fraser River. Our Farm is certified organic (BCARA) and the whole property is Salmon-Safe Certified. GVOFC is currently home to 4 adults, 3 children, 11 goats, several cats, 2 organic vegetable businesses, a flock of chickens and many thousands of bees. Our co-operative also has about 50 non-resident shareholding members.
GVOFC seeks to feed and educate present and future generations by co-operatively holding, stewarding and sustainably farming our land. At the moment, we have two businesses being run off of the farm – Close to Home Organics and Earth Apple Organic Farm are organic produce businesses that operate Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) programs and sell at local Farmer’s Markets. Helping us with our pollination needs on the farm, a group of shareholders called the Delphic Hive act as our on-farm apiarists. GVOFC is:
- a co-operative
- committed to environmental sustainability
- a community among communities
- stewards of farmland
- keen on collaborative processes
- endeavouring to expand our self-awareness and personal growth
Co-operatively preserving and stewarding organic farmland to support farmers in growing quality food for local communities.
