By Jeana Cadby Flying airplanes using fuel made from mustard seeds might seem like a far-fetched scenario, but Canadian researchers and farmers have already made it a reality. Locally produced biofuel, converted from sustainably grown mustard seeds, is an encouraging prospect for greening the airline industry, one flight at a time. Biofuel is a form of renewable energy, produced from plant matter. Greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector are expected to increase over the next few years, as frequency of air travel continues to rise. While these contributions of greenhouse gas are ..read more

PERMACULTURE: Can It Meet With Conventional Ag?
Modern Agriculture Magazine
by Cate Pedersen
2y ago
By Finlay Burrage For some, the word permaculture might bring to mind an image of a group of hippies living off the grid with dreadlocks and an obscene amount of home-brewed kombucha. For others, permaculture might be a synonym for a homestead utopia in the woods where they raise a family and live off the land. Bloom and Boehlain point out in their well-read book Practical Permaculture, that permaculture has “been defined as extreme organic gardening and as a lifestyle that includes being barefoot and spiritual, doing circle dances and full-time yoga”; at the same time, however, they note that ..read more

Cate Pedersen Sumas Ridge Greenhouses Inc. and Bakerview Greenhouses are owned by the Vander Meulen family. I don’t often get the opportunity to travel to locations with our photographer, Karin, but was glad to venture out one frosty February afternoon to the Abbotsford greenhouse owned by Armand Vander Meulen and his family. The warm humid air, diffused light and rows of glassed-in vegetation create a welcome respite from the cold outside. The Vander Meulens (Armand, his wife Petra, Armand’s brother Peter and sister-in-law Winnie) own Sumas Ridge Greenhouses Inc. and Bakerview Greenhouses Inc ..read more

By Ronda Payne When Canada’s legalization of cannabis was set for October 17, 2018, some farmers considered switching to the new green to make a fortune, but is it that easy? Is cannabis the proverbial cash crop? According to experts, demand is currently very high, but there is a shortage of legal cannabis perhaps due to the slow road to receiving cultivation (growing) licences. While high demand is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, growers have to carefully weigh their options before switching to cannabis and taking on the challenges of a new crop. Modern Agriculture spoke to T ..read more

By Cate Pedersen Karin and Hans Baer, German pizza Both Hans and Karin Baer grew up in agriculture and it’s in their blood, but farming for a living is still a learning process. After purchasing 1.5 acres in Chilliwack in 2005, their plan was to renovate the old house and make ninety percent of their landscape edible to feed family, friends and eventually stock a farm stand. A woodworker by trade, and owner of a hardwood flooring business which he sold in 2014, Hans fashioned a beautiful home with future visitors in mind. He bought six goats from a local farmer, with visions of adding goat che ..read more

BC’s BEVERAGE INDUSTRY: Needs a Little More Juice
Modern Agriculture Magazine

By Paul Pryce Beverages are among British Columbia’s largest and fastest growing manufactured food products, according to Statistics Canada. Much of this strength can be attributed to the more than 600,000 litres of wine produced each year by the province’s 929 vineyards. But there are other recognized brands that produce non-alcoholic beverages using BC’s high quality fruit, such as Kelowna’s Sun-Rype, as well as emerging players like Triple Jim’s Juice of Chilliwack. With Sun-Rype generating annual revenues in excess of $150 million, juice could be a major economic driver. Unfortunately, the ..read more

Richmond conflicted over farm housing
Modern Agriculture Magazine

2y ago
By Ronda Payne There isn’t much the two groups squaring off about housing on farmland in Richmond can agree to, but one common point is that the issue has caused division between the community’s residents. Laura Gillanders, a co-co-ordinator with Richmond Farmwatch believes the municipality should enforce house size restrictions that are, in her words, similar to the suggestions of the Ministry of Agriculture from 2011. “Richmond has put a limit, but it is double what the Ministry of Agriculture has suggested a house should be on farmland,” she notes. According to Gillanders, Farmwatch member ..read more
