“There’s something special about the smell of wet earth, the warmth of a cow’s milk and the silvery glint of a fish slipping through the water — and in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs, it happens down every road.
“Fruits and vegetables, fish and beef — in our towns, it’s all, truly, Homegrown.”
In this year’s edition of Homegrown, we’ve focused on a few of the farms in the Agassiz-Harrison Valley that are taking a unique approach to their production of local food.
Whether it’s a land-based salmon farm trying to make it in a competitive industry, or a 48-acre teaching farm that melds ecology with agriculture, it’s all happening in Agassiz and Harrison.
Over the next few days, we’ll be sharing stories from these local farmers with you. You can keep track of what stories are published and which ones are coming up next in the infographic below.
