“Backyard Farm” Hand Crafted Preserves and Products

Classical cooking methods are at the forefront of my food philosophy. With this in mind, it is the “old world” thought process that inspires “Backyard Farm” products. From my recipes developed with all natural, sustainable, fresh and high quality ingredients-to the preserving of these products, utilizing local produce year round, and preserving at the prime state of ripeness.

I offer an extensive list of evolving products for wholesale or retail sale, on their own, or as an extension of the uniquely Okanagan Culinary Experience. The majority of ingredients are grown on our property, using organic practice methods. Additional quality ingredients are sourced locally, from other like minded, passionate growers and suppliers. We are proud to represent their efforts through our menus! Some of our culinary partners include:

In addition to these hand crafted products, you may find some chocolate truffles, a loaf of bread or two, a few litres of seasonally inspired soup or stock, or a small selection of hand made artisan charcuterie items.

The last few seasons we have made our Backyard Farm handcrafted retail products available in the wineshop at Hester Creek Estate Winery, as well as the tasting room at Covert Farms. In addition, the newest production of handcrafted products are available on the shelves at Backyard Farm, feel free to drop us a line for availability to pickup a few things for your pantry or next dinner party!
