How long have you been farming? Paul began growing food on this land in 2005. In 2011 he and Angela moved to Kingfisher Farm with 5 other families.
Did you grow up farming? No! Paul always had a green thumb but it has a been a steep learning curve since beginning to grow professionally in 2005. Paul grew up in the city of Winnipeg. Angela would have called herself a city girl until moving out to South Surrey. "I needed something that I could call my own when we moved to the farm - something that could connect me to the land. The garden was Paul's thing. So I bought a milk cow together with my friend Karin. Gradually I began growing flowers and was delighted by the joy of harvesting and tending to them. This side of the business, along with running the weekly market has been fun to grow into over the past 7 years. We are both so grateful to be able to share the goodness of the land with you.
