Built on the creed of quality farming and 'good food', Meadow Creek Farms specializes in high value veggies and meats. Mandy Melnyk, owner and farmer at Meadow Creek Farms, grew up on a family farm near Waskatenau, Alberta. From an early age, she learned the value of hard work and the importance of family farms and local food. She is dedicated to sharing those values with her customers and is here to provide for those seeking local, sustainable food sources. Mandy specializes in food that is grown for canning and hopes to foster a canning revolution within the local food community. Her cucumbers make perfect pickles, and the tomatoes are picked ripe to be eaten right away or cooked down into a delectable pasta sauce. So if you haven't tried it out yet, give canning a try this year! It's a great way to connect with your food, extend the local season, and create some food security. Meadow Creek Farms is committed to sustainable farming practices for their delicious vegetables. The Organic Box is proud to source baby potatoes, garlic scapes, field tomatoes, cucumbers, summer and winter squash, and other seasonal veggies from Mandy and her farm crew.
