Bronwyn & Willis

We are a diverse, certified organic, small family farm in Cawston British Columbia. The farm is owned by Shirlee Mae Schneider and Moses Brown, and operated with their son Willis and his wife Bronwyn. Willis and Bronwyn are the 4th generation of our family to be farming in the Similkameen Valley. Our farm is small enough that we are able to do most of the labour ourselves, with help from good friends at key times. This is intentional, as we believe that the physical labour ties us together through the generations with shared experience, ties us to the land, and to our place here on this earth. The genuine appreciation we receive from our customers is a reflection of this approach, as they can taste it in the produce we grow year after year (and sense it in our frazzled, tired appearance in high summer!).

For us sustainability means maintaining a modest lifestyle growing good food for people, coexisting with our life supporting ecosystems, and living intentionally in such a way that we can enjoy the work we do. We strive to achieve this each season.
