About Us

COVID-19 UPDATE:
To do our part to ensure the health and safety of our community and distribute food as safely as possible, we are modifying our farm plans and sales during the pandemic.

For updates, please join our e-list.

WHAT’S UP IN 2021 – check here.

At Sweet Digz Farm, we grow vibrant, delicious & beautiful vegetables for our community!  During this time of global upheaval, local agriculture can keep our community well-fed, healthy, and enjoying the simple and joyful act of connecting to the earth through fresh, flavourful food.

Sweet Digz Farm is a small-scale ecologically-sustainable farm in Steveston BC,  on leased land, located in unceded traditional territory of hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓-speaking Coast Salish peoples.

On these fertile flats of the Fraser River, we use ecological farming practices to grow veggies and herbs.  We sell our produce to our very local Richmond community through our markets and box program.  And we try to increase food access through our SHARE it Forward veggie  donations and subsidies for folks who face barriers to getting fresh food on their plates.

Share it Forward – Help Neighbours in Need!

Help us donate fresh healthy organic veggies to neighbours in need by contributing to our SHARE it Forward Fund, which can be more impactful than ever during the COVID pandemic.  We began this initiative in 2018 and our community supported it beyond our wildest dreams.  In 2020, our customers and supporters helped us donate or subsidize over $5,700 worth of veggies(!!!), for a total just over $11,000 since the program began.  Wow.  Learn more here & help us continue to share the love in the 2021 season!

Food For All!

In 2019 the Richmond Advocacy Support Committee, our partners in SHAREit Forward, created a cookbook full of recipes from their 2018 community kitchen workshops using Sweet Digz Farm-fresh veggies. The cookbooks sold out and they’ve decided to donate some of their proceeds to SHAREit Forward to spread the veggie love to even more people.  Amazing!

  1. The vegetables are robust: bursting with freshness and flavour. Many kinds can be eaten raw. Also, there are extraordinary varieties. I prefer using spices in my cooking to create vegetable stews: South Asian or Italian style. My family empties the pot, as the flavours really come through.
