About Us: Living & Growing Organically

Caring for and cherishing the land we live on. Long days and short nights. Campfires, good food, and lots of laughter. This is how we live.

Our grandparents ran a beautiful cattle ranch here in British Columbia, Canada. With their passing, the farm had been neglected and no one picked up the legacy they left behind. 6 years ago Nicola Valley Produce was formed by our brother, the original Owner, Nicholas Peterson. When he and his family decided it was time for them to move on to their next adventure, we picked up the mantle in 2015, to carry on NVP, growing garlic, and caring for the beautiful family farm left behind by our Grandparents, John and Josephine Shuter.

Growing garlic & produce, and living our lives as organically and self-sustainably as possible is our goal. We hope to inspire others to care for the earth and their bodies, and fill both with only those things that will keep them healthy and happy.

We do not spray, fertilize or do anything that nature wouldn't do. We grow green manure crops of peas and oats, till them in with love and sunshine - and the garlic is happy.

Nicola Valley Produce is located on The Lower Nicola Indian Band Reserve. Our family is fortunate enough to call ourselves Salish, First Nation's (Native American) heritage from right here in this beautiful valley. We love being outdoors, and raising our children and grandchildren to love, repect, and harvest the land, never to damage it. We enjoy huckleberry picking, salmon fishing, helping our neighbors, and growing our own food. Our family has a goal to eat food that is produced by us or someone we directly know. We hope you will do the same. Please order some seed garlic today to put in your garden. And enjoy the bounty from our Mother Earth. Start by viewing our Garilc Varieties page.
