Close to Home Organics is a small-scale, family farm operation run by Chris Bodnar and Paige Dampier. We live and farm at Glen Valley Organic Farm, a beautiful 50-acre property on the banks of the mighty Fraser River. We first moved here in 2007, and formed Close to Home Organics in 2011 as we developed a vision for our business.
Our priority is, and has always been, to grow quality organic produce for local markets, in a way that is sustainable for the soil, our business, and the humans who power it.
Heading into the 2023 season, our focus is on growing to supply our Community Shared Agriculture program, which we run alongside our friends and colleagues at Earth Apple Organic Farm. Produce from both businesses is certified organic by the Pacific Agricultural Certification Society (PACS).
