Hiring: Farm Lead
Company: Field House Farm

Location: Abbotsford, Lower Mainland BC

Field House Farm is a diverse operation consisting of 2 acres of grain, a small vineyard, one established and one new orchard, numerous assorted perennial fruits, a small flock of laying hens, ¼ acre of market gardens and an unheated greenhouse for production in the shoulder seasons. The farm’s production plan is structured around the needs, wants and foodie dreams of the Canteen and Brewing teams – we grow what they want to cook and brew with. We also sell our surplus crops to other local businesses.

As Purveyors of the Good Life at Field House we work to ensure balance for our team and add value to their lives and these values extend directly to our farming practices. We care deeply about supporting our local agriculture community and sourcing as locally and sustainably as possible. We believe that the flavor that comes through on the plate and in our beers is a direct product of the inputs and how it was grown in the first place.

Our farm’s goal is to grow a variety of beautiful and delicious produce using methods that encourage healthy soil biology, increase biodiversity and contribute to the creation of a healthy farm ecosystem. There is lots of room for experimentation and creativity in farming methods on the farm. Although we have chosen not to certify, we do employ organic practices.
