Home

RAVINE CREEK is a family run vegetable farm on 10 acres in the Slocan Valley, British Columbia. We are committed to demonstrating vibrant ecological health on a working farm.  Our presence serves to engage our community in food production, habitat stewardship, and supporting our local economy. We are fostering a revitalization of agriculture here at home, while maintaining solidarity with other communities engaged in similar efforts.

Our vision is to provide access to *truly* local, nutritious and ecologically grown food, while earning a living wage.

The farm is located on a 10 acre homestead originally established at the turn of the 20th century. Historically the farm has supported grazing animals, hay pastures and a small orchard, in 2007 the farm was reborn as Rebalkin EcoFarm, growing a wide assortment of vegetables in the current ¾ acre fenced garden.

The farm changed hands in 2008 and was fallow until 2010. Farmers Alys and Eric are thrilled to have the opportunity to steward this land in vegetables and pasture again. We sell our produce through our CSA and at the Wednesday Farmer’s Market in Nelson, BC. In 2013 we certified with Kootenay Organic Growers Society.

ABOUT OUR CSA

  • The Program runs for 20 weeks from late May to October.
  • Boxes are picked up weekly at either our farm in Appledale or from our stand at the Hall St. Market on Wednesdays.
  • Shares are $600 for 20 weeks. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or e-transfer.
  • We are dedicated to doing our best to make our CSA program accessible to all households, regardless of income.  If your household requires an alternate payment schedule, please get in touch directly to discuss options.                                   ALSO
  • There is a pretty rad coupon program run by Healthy Families BC and the BC Farmers Market Association the coupons can be used to purchase produce from our stand (and all the other awesome local farmers! ) at the Nelson Farmers Market on Baker St. Wednesdays from June to Sept. The coupons are available at various advocacy organizations in Nelson (Food Cupboard, Kootenay Kids etc.)
  • We are often asked how many people an average box feeds and the answer is always: it depends! Some households eat tons of fresh vegetables and some comparatively little, what we can tell folks is that the boxes have an average dollar value of $30/week. So take a moment and visualize $30 worth of just vegetables.
