Weekly Vendor Spotlight: Stony Mountain Farm
With the onset of COVID-19, the farmer’s markets are slightly different this year. To maintain the flow of traffic and avoid crowding we have asked that people “Shop, don’t stop” during the market. This may have created a lack of connection between you and our incredible vendors. We will be posting a weekly spotlight of our vendors to give you the opportunity to stop and connect with your local makers, bakers, and growers!
This week’s vendor spotlight is Stony Mountain Farm
We are a small scale farm tucked away in the mountains of the Upper Squamish Valley which is approximately 25mins North/west of Squamish. We currently raise laying hens for eggs, heritage chickens during the warmer months, holiday turkeys and farrow to finish heritage pork which we sell in assorted cuts and sausages. We also manage a small flock of Icelandic sheep and hope to have lamb, fibre and pelts available in the near future.
What inspired you to start your business?
Back in 2008 we purchased our first flock of 50 laying hens which was the catalyst that changed the way we looked at the food we were eating. We became more conscious and wanted to know where our meat and eggs were coming from but also offer them to our community.
What is your favourite thing about the Port Moody Market and Port Moody?
As a new vendor the welcoming atmosphere And excitement from customers is so up lifting and motivational.
What is something you are grateful for this year?
I’m grateful we were able to continue with our plans for expansion over the past year even with the current pandemic. I’m grateful to all our customers for continuing to support us during these uncertain times
