Hope Farm Organics
Andrew and Janie met while in Alaska. Andrew was living there at the time after attaining a BSc. in Agriculture and enjoying all of what unspoiled wilderness had to offer. Janie had taken it upon herself to go on an adventure riding her bike across Alaska and met Andrew near the village of Hope Alaska while Andrew was salmon fishing. The two fell in love and moved to Prince George British Columbia so Janie could finish her degree in education. With a deep concern for the environment and living in Prince George for a short while, the two felt obligated to help fix the broken food system and the serious threat of food security in the region, and thus the idea of Hope Farm Organics was born in 2011. They have been providing the region with organic vegetables ever since while innovating growing methods and breeding hardy plants for the region's difficult growing climate. Andrew and Janie currently run a CSA vegetable delivery service and supply several restaurants in Prince George.
