The family farms involved in Direct Organics Plus are some of the original organic farmers of the Similkameen Valley. As strong champions of growing without pesticides, the efforts of these farmers helped develop organic agriculture across the valley. Direct Organics Plus is a packing house and distribution centre for organic growers in Cawston BC. Structured as a co-operative, Direct Organics Plus helps small scale organic farmers in the Okanagan pack and market their crops, an essential service in this hard-working agricultural community.
