Recent “Country Guide” Article Inclusion

At the end of last season, I was interviewed by the writer, Benita Berg, whom I had the opportunity to meet a few years ago, when I was providing the 2 day per week Healthy Lunch program at Tuc el Nuit Elementary in Oliver. I was given the opportunity to share my love of cooking, farming and encouraging discussion regarding the future our food system. This article is a great read, and we are honoured for the opportunity to contribute some of our philosophy about the evolution of our food system, and the nature of farming culture.

Montecristo Magazine Article, February 2018.

As we commence our fifth season since launch, I am really excited to share this newly published article in Montecristo Magazine. The last month has allowed for some much needed rest and family time as we anticipate our newest little arrival to the farm, in addition to some inspiring opportunities to reflect on the development of Backyard Farm thus far. We have been so fortunate to have a wealth of support, from our family and friends, industry alliances,  winery clients and partners, to our high percentage of return guests and corporate clients.  Furthermore, we are so grateful for the media guests who have helped us to broaden our reach, by eloquently sharing their experience with their readers and social media followers. As I read this article, I was prompted to express my gratitude for all of those whom have helped us turn a simple dream into a reality.  Truthfully, our success can be attributed to many variables, but likely  “word of mouth” has been the most effective means , whether by prior guests speaking of their experience, or writers such as James Dolan, for Montecristo Magazine, writing of his authentic experience with us. Humbling to say the least, but most importantly it is yet another reason to be inspired to continue evolving, growing and sharing what it means to raise a family, live, work, and play in this beautiful place I call home.  What an amazing way to start the 2018 season!...
