Almost Urban Vegetables
Product Category: vegetables
Almost Urban Vegetables is a 10 acre family farm, owned and run by Marilyn Firth, Bruce Berry, their sons and helpers – the Almost Urban team! We are located in St. Norbert, Manitoba, right on the south edge of Winnipeg. Our vegetables are grown in the fertile, nutrient rich soils of the Red River Valley.
We follow three important principles in our growing practices:
- All Natural
- Environmentally Responsible
We use no pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers. Most of our implements are hand operated so we burn very little fuel in our operation, since we strive to live on current sunshine! We nurture the soil by adding compost and growing green manures. Barriers such as agricultural fabrics (row cover) help keep pests in check along with crop rotations, companion plants and reduced plot size.
