After meeting in an agricultural apprenticeship program, Simone MacIsaac and Sarah McMillan started Rootdown Organic Farm in 2009. Their small-scale organic farm is operated on the philosophy of sustainability and giving back more to the Earth than is used to farm it. Some of the ways they do this are: adding local, aged manures, using biodynamic preparations, and rotating chickens and pigs through next year's fields. The farm benefits from the two glacial rivers that border it and from the flat fertile soil of the Pemberton Valley. Rootdown’s offerings include: Organic Vegetables: Carrots, Beets, Radishes, Onions, Leeks, Salad mix, Beans, Zuchinni, Winter squash, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Basil, Herbs, Cabbages, Peas, Kale; Free range chicken eggs; and Pork from Berkshire pigs. Rootdown markets their products in Pemberton and Whistler to restaurants, grocery stores, and through their CSA harvest box program and Pig Share program. Featured above:
