Agriculture is one of the important parts of the Salt Spring community...along with the Arts and the alternative health and wellness focus.
The Saturday Market, the Tuesday Farmer's Market, the farmgate stands, the Farm Dinners in the summer season, the Chamber sponsored Sip & Savour harvest celebration, the various groups seeking good outcomes and community support for agriculture (such as the Agricultural Alliance)...it all works to create a viable farming experience.
Thinking of buying a pastoral property and to trying your hand at sustainable small holding farming? Call me...let's look at some land parcels that will suit your ideas.
Orchards, vineyards, olive grove, berries, organic produce...free range egg production...sheep, animal husbandry...some serious farmers export food from Salt Spring...others sell locally.
In this hyper-connected global village we call our world, it may be more important than ever to keep that sustainable local farm model front and centre...what if supply lines vanished? Support of local farmers is a priority. It's an authentic "shop local" initiative.
