Terry Grewal, owner of Secrest Organics, started out working for Gene Covert on his 130+ acres farm as the farms manager. In 2014, Gene leased the ground cropping land to Terry and thus began Secrest Organics at Covert Farms. Secrest continues the Covert legacy of producing high quality fruits and vegetables in the Okanagan. Growing what seems to be anything that will flourish in their fertile soil. From everyday ground crops to seasonal specialties, there is not a dull week at Secrest Farms!
