August 2016, we bought our forever farm. 27 acres of gentle hillside in Grand Forks. Our home is COMPLETELY off-grid, solar powered with no back up grid power. After out-growing our Armstrong farm, we travelled around BC looking for the perfect spot to grow our farm and our family. Here we can grow to our hearts content and truly embrace our earth loving ways. With the end goal of being fully sustainable!

Boundary Hill 2016

 

We had outgrown our farm in Armstrong and decided to find more land where we could expand and give our plants, animals and minds more room to roam.  We settled on a off-grid home on the gentle slopes just outside of Grand Forks, BC.  Here we have 27 acres to truely let our inner earthchild run free.  We are looking forward to seeing where the land takes us.

The first thing we did, even before we moved in, was plant a field full of potatoes, squash, and melons!

The Rudy Family Farm 
2013​​

2013 was a year full of firsts.  After owning a home in Lake Country with only 0.25 acres, this was our first acreage, with 5 acres of growing potential.  With all the extra land we could finally incorperate animals onto the farm.  We now have a total of 23 sheep, 3 sows, 18 piglets, 25 layers, 100 meat birds, 40 turkeys, and 5 rabbits (4 does, 1 buck). We also welcomed our first child into the world on September 13th.  We hope that the 2014 season is just as prosperous.

Meet me at the Market!

​​
We have been vendors at markets all over the okanagan, and continue to sell our produce locally.  Even though we do sell from the farm, we love being able to visit with all the locals and chat with the regulars in town.
