Meadowbrook Farm and Kootenay Sprouts is a family run farm located just south of Salmo where it has been operating for 17 years. Our primary business is supplying grocery stores and restaurants in the West Kootenays with sprouts and salad greens. All of our products are harvested within 24 hours of delivery and travels less than 50 km resulting in some of the freshest local produce available. We are certified organic by the national organic standards through Kootenay Organic Growers Society (KOGS) and our facilities are inspected and licensed by Interior health.
We have a passion for healthy, sustainable food. Our mission is to provide an expanding variety of healthy organic produce year round to local consumers. We strive to make our products easily accessible to people who want to make healthy choices for their family and the environment.
In that spirit we have expanded the farm product lines in the past few years and are now offering farm gate sales of a range of product from eggs to garden produce and honey. We make regular donations to food banks and soup kitchens for those who might not be able to otherwise eat fresh and local. We also welcome farm tours and school groups in an effort to educate and inspire our community.
We grow 6 varieties of sprouts; alfalfa and clover are the most common but we also provide broccoli, onion, salad crunch savory deli and five bean mix. The sprouts are grown year round in a controlled environment, precise temperature and moisture along with strict sanitation regimes are critical to the sprouts growth. Sprouts grow on a weekly cycle and like our salad greens we deliver them to our customers within 24 hours of harvest. Sprouts are best when fresh and crisp, they last for over two weeks if cared for properly. Sprouts can be purchased through local retailers in clam shells and you will find them in sandwiches around the Kootenays.
We grow a variety of salad greens including Mesclun Mix, Spicy Greens and Arugula. Our greens are all hand harvested and delivered straight to market resulting in a tender product that is much fresher and higher in nutritional value than similar products that have traveled thousands of miles. In the early spring we expand our offering to include Chard, Kale, Basil and Cucumbers. Salad greens can be purchased through select local retailers and you will find them on the menus in many local restaurants. We also welcome farm gate customers.
Seedling sales are an ever expanding part of our business. Although our offerings change slightly from year to year we grow many different heirloom and cherry tomatoes, peppers, and a large assortment of veggies like kale, chard, broccoli, cabbage, onions and celery. You will find our seedlings at Ellisons Market in Nelson and Skyway Hardware in Salmo. They are also available at the mothers day plant sale in Salmo or you can pick them up straight from the farm.
We are often overwhelmed with fresh garden produce that is available straight from the farm. Customers can come to the farm and help pick, dig and wash, or self serve from the coolers. To see if we have what you are looking for and pre-order please follow us on Facebook for current produce lists.
