About Us
Cedar Isle Farm is nestled between tall mountains on rich and fertile soil near Agassiz, at the eastern end of the Fraser Valley. We are one of very few local farms that produce certified organic grains.
Cedar Isle Farm is a magical place where we protect and develop natural habitats and wildlife flourishes. Jim and Diane, Yoshi, together with their children and a supportive community practice human-scale farming, supplying high quality local organic food. Our products include oats, wheat, barley, and rye, which are rolled, milled into whole grain flour, or available as kernels. Our products are grown and handled with pride and we are delighted to share them through our grain CSA program (cedarislefarm.ca), at the Vancouver Farmers Markets, and through VFM Direct
Practices
As stewards of Cedar Isle Farm, we strive to practice regenerative agriculture, maintaining and building the soil, protecting and enhancing wildlife habitat on the farm and in the surrounding slough, and cultivating mutually supportive community connections in the Agassiz area and beyond.
The 94-acre farm is certified organic by the B.C. Association for Regenerative Agriculture (BCARA; Cert.# 03-10-171) and is also Salmon Safe Certified. We partner with two neighbouring dairy farms to manage our lush grass-legume mixtures, which are used for silage and hay, and to provide the organic nutrients required to maintain high productivity. We use traditional mechanical cultivation and crop rotation methods to control weeds, pests and diseases in our grain crops. We save most of our own grain seeds for replanting and conduct trials to test the suitability of heritage, modern and new grain varieties to the Fraser Valley.
Welcome to the community! We hope you enjoy the robust flavour of local organic grains! .Good health to you!
