Mans Organics is a certified organic farm owned and operated by Henk and Rita Mans, their son Andrew and his wife Denise. The farm is located in beautiful southern Alberta, near Coaldale, where the family has grown organic crops for more than five years. Their focus: to grow quality, organic red and yellow onions, shallots, and garlic, with alfalfa and barley for rotation. In 2012, they built an organic greenhouse that spans approximately half an acre, where they produce tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. The Mans decided to begin farming organically to eliminate the risks that chemically treated produce. Using only organic methods for weed and insect control, their goal is to make healthy, safely grown organic vegetables available to a wider population. The Organic Box is happy to partner with Mans Organic, and support local organic farmers.
