About Sweet Digz Farm
Sweet Digz Farm is a small-scale organic farm, located on the edge of Steveston (Richmond), BC in the fertile valley of the Fraser River. We grow vegetables, seed and herbs and distribute our bounty through our 100-person Community Supported Agriculture box (delivered throughout Richmond and Vancouver), a weekly market in Richmond, and to Gudrun Restaurant in Steveston.
Sweet Digz Farm is run by owner-farmers Kareno Hawbolt & Kimi Hendess, and our team includes a seasonal farm hand, casual labour help, and a few very dedicated volunteers who join us once a week. We aim to create a fun, educational, empowering vibe where everyone feels appreciated while also being challenged to work their butts off in the extraordinary conditions of weather, timeframes, and general highs and lows that are the daily reality of farming. We give the earth our all, and are rewarded by amazing bounty. Check out http://www.sweetdigzfarm.ca for more about us.
