Harker's Organics is a family affair in the truest sense. Since the Harker family settled in the Similkameen Valley in 1888, many family members have worked on the farm, past and present. The move back to organics came with Bruce and Kathy Harker in 1973 and Troy and Sara Harker have remained devoted to values of sustainability. The farm's 24 acres produces tree fruits and ground crops. Grown on the farm are 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, 80 varieties of hot peppers, sweet peppers, potatoes, cape goose berries, tomatillos, 4 varieties of apples, 2 varieties of pears, 5 varieties of peaches, 2 varieties of nectarines, and cherries.
