RAVINE CREEK is a certified organic 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.
For over a decade we have been providing our community with access to *truly* local, nutritious and ecologically grown food. In 2019 we began the process of transitioning our vegetable production area to no-till. We completed the transition in the 2021 season and are now proudly using no-till techniques to manage the whole farm.
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 1.5 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 at the Farmer’s Market in Nelson, BC. and right here at our farm, every day 9am – 7pm during the growing season. In 2013 we certified with Kootenay Organic Growers Society.
