City Beet Farm was born from a commitment between two farmers and a community of homeowners. Today, we grow a wide diversity of vegetables and flowers on a network of properties in the Mount Pleasant and Riley Park neighbourhoods of Vancouver.
Homeowners receive a weekly box of vegetables in exchange for the use of their land and we sell the rest through a Community Supported Agriculture model. Our CSA members pay for their vegetables in advance of the season and commit to picking them up weekly throughout the summer. Their early investment gives us the ability to make decisions, plan for the season and ultimately grow better food. In this way, we all share the risks inherent in farming.
Produce is harvested fresh, the same day it is picked up and we offer tours throughout the season for people to see first hand how their food is grown. We ride our bikes to transport produce, use mostly hand tools, and give thanks to the fungi, earthworms, rain and the sun.
Our vegetables are grown with the type of love and care that you can taste. We work hard to feed bellies and nourish the spirit. We hope that you’ll join us in this effort.
