Our nutrient-rich soils produce a rotation of organic hemp hearts, hulless organic pumpkin seeds and asparagus and we continually work to source the best products from around the world. One of our most popular varieties is our nutty, sweet tasting quinoa seed with no bitterness – a unique natural product requiring minimal post-harvest cleaning. We grow, harvest, package and market specialty foods and bring them to our Canadian and U.S. markets.
We have been successfully farming a varied rotation of specialty crops such as potatoes, beans, quinoa, hemp, asparagus and oats for the past 15 years.
The products we sell wholesale and/or at markets include:
• Organic Certification by Pro Cert 2016 • Canada GAP Food Safety Certification •
The farm started as Northern Potato Company Ltd. in 1979. The second generation family farm is now incorporated as River Valley Specialty Farms Inc. and is operated by the management team of James Kuhl, Chief Operating Officer and sister Kristen Gray, Chief Administrative Officer. Access to over 60 employees in peak season ensures the hand-picking, weeding and packing of crops like asparagus are done just right.
In addition to our crop land, our facilities include storage, coolers, workshops, packaging, grain bins and even on-site accommodations for up to 50 employees.
