GET TO KNOW US
Wise Earth Farm is a small-scale, family-run & operated urban vegetable farm located at the corner of K.L.O Road and Mission Creek in Kelowna, BC.
At the core of our mission is a profound commitment to nurturing nutrient-rich food & soil. We are dedicated to upholding the most rigorous standards in regenerative food production—a holistic approach to agriculture that enhances soil vitality, promotes biodiversity, optimizes water management, and facilitates carbon sequestration.
Ultimately, we accomplish this by building living soil through organic practices, minimizing soil disturbance, and abstaining from using any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.
Throughout the season, we offer a variety of greens, herbs, root vegetables, cool-weather-loving crops, summer crops, and micro-greens grown in the soil.
Wise Earth Farm, founded in 2011 by John Hofer and Brenda Paterson, has transitioned into a family-operated business since 2022. Our team now includes Myles & Ariana (couple), Gabby (sister), Miranda & Archer (couple), Raine (mother), and seasonal employees. Altogether, we work together to establish an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible farm-business model that benefits both our farming team and our community.
