Snow Farms is a family-run business operating on three different properties (farms). We farm a total of 110 acres on these properties. We grow over forty different types of certified organic vegetables, producing the equivalent of 100 semi-trailer loads of produce each year.
The Snows push typical crop production boundaries for this area and grow many crops that are not considered to be suited to the micro-climate or the soils. They have developed successful techniques to produce these vegetables on a consistent basis.
Their crops are grown on rich deltaic soils, fertilised with composted animal and crop waste and augmented with natural minerals permitted in certified organic production. They find our farm soils to be very productive and the proof is in the vegetables we produce.
Most of their product is sold to wholesale produce businesses in metro Vancouver, British Columbia.
Harvie and Susan Snow manage Snow Farms Ltd., a family-run farm business. Other family members are daughter, Meaghan, son Trevor and Harvie's father, Gordon (Grandpa). The Snows have been growing certified organic vegetables since 1995 and have farmed in the B.C. communities of Westwold, Bradner and Ladner since 2000.
This is one beautiful bulb of fennel. The root or bulb is great raw, roasted, or glazed. </br> </br> If you are lucky to get a bulb with the fronds make a wonderful tea. Be sure to use the whole plant! </br> </br> Like many of its fellow spices, fennel contains its own unique combination of phytonutrients including the flavonoids rutin, quercitin, and various kaempferol glycosides that give it strong antioxidant activity. In addition to its unusual phytonutrients, fennel bulb is an excellent source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant, able to neutralize free radicals in all aqueous environments of the body.
