The award was presented at the BCAFM’s annual conference which ran from Feb. 28 to March 2.
Owner Loren Taves said the Taves’ entire operation is founded on environmentally responsible and ethical farming practices, innovation, community, and quality.
Taves Family Farms consists of 4.5 acres of greenhouses that grow artisan vegetables, 12 acres of apples, 14 acres of berries, seven acres of pumpkins and three acres of sweet corn.
The Taves are active in farmers’ markets where they sell many of their products. In 1990, Loren and his wife, Corinne, created the Applebarn – a destination designed for fall family fun.
Taves Family Farms was also recently awarded the AgriLink (local food) Award in the third annual Abbotsford Environmental Leadership Awards hosted by the Abbotsford Matsqui Rotary Club.
