Tour our Farm

I contribute a lot of my interest in farming to a key moment; a tour of our own family farm when I was in kindergarten. As I look back at photos, it astounds me how much of a simple field-trip made such an impression with me.

Part of my goal has been to showcase sustainable food production to students and the public. Over the last few seasons, many students from kindergarten to college have walked through our fields, connecting with the farm and hopefully gathering inspiration. In recent years, we have also hosted tours for farm organizations and the public to gain in-depth experience on how, why and what we grow.

We realize that many people have not experienced life on a farm. If you are looking for that deeper connection with our farm and your food; come take a tour with us!

WHAT OTHERS HAVE THOUGHT

Matthew was a great host. He is extremely educated about organic produce and his in-depth tour provided us with great knowledge that we could pass onto our members here at the Kootenay Co-op. Having True Local farmers like Matthew and his team really care about sustainable agriculture and talk about farming with such passion is inspiring. Linden Lane Farms have big plans, and we look forward to returning to the farm to see them reach their goals.
