Meet the Growers
Beck Farms was established in 1986 and has since then been mastering the art of cultivating carrots for over 30 years. The farm is run by a family team consisting of Shelley & Rod Bradshaw and their two sons. Their main focus is on producing and packing only the highest quality products. The farm has expanded its offerings over the years and now also grows Cole crops, Beets, Dill, Parsnips, Peppers, Eggplant, and Preserves. Beck Farms takes great pride in their work and strives to provide their customers with fresh, delicious produce.
Edgar Farms, a family-owned and operated business in Alberta, has a rich history dating back to the early 1980s. The farm was started by Elna and Doug Edgar, who recognized that the farm could provide opportunities for their daughters by growing garden vegetables for sale. Over time, the farm has specialized in growing high-quality asparagus, sweet garden peas, and various types of beans and has become known for their focus on non-traditional crops. Today, Edgar Farms is a testament to the Edgars' passion for farming and their commitment to quality and flavor.
Since 1993, the Buyks family has been growing potatoes for Innisfail Growers. They work together as a family unit, with John, Corry, Hanno, and Megan all contributing to the growth and harvest of the potatoes that are sold at the Innisfail Growers booth. If you purchase potatoes from the Innisfail Growers booth, you can rest assured that they have been grown with care and expertise by the Buyks family.
Blaine and Leona Staples, who are fourth-generation farmers, own Leona's family farm located just north of Innisfail. They are well-known for their strawberries and also specialize in greenhouse crops, such as potted flowers, as well as growing various field crops, including lettuce and pumpkins.
Hillside Greenhouses, which joined Innisfail Growers in 2003, is owned and run by Carmen Fuentes, who has a background in Greenhouse Management. Carmen is passionate about using fresh vegetables to create delicious products, including a line of tasty salsas, sauces, and dressings. In addition to her veggie-based offerings, Carmen and her family make some seriously scrumptious Caramel Popcorn.
