About Klippers Organic Acres
The mission of Klippers Organic Acres is to provide high-quality, healthy, seasonal food to its local community in a sound ecological way.
Klippers Organic Acres was founded in 2001 by Kevin and Annamarie Klippenstein, when they purchased a 5-acre parcel of land in Cawston, BC to grow fruit and vegetables using organic principles. In 2001, Kevin and Annamarie’s goal was to provide healthy, high-quality produce to families across British Columbia. Since then, their goal hasn’t changed much. Today, Kevin and Annamarie are proud to say that they have been farming for over twenty years and what started as 5 acres has expanded to 60.
Klippers Organic Acres farms in a sustainable manner, striving to give back to the earth rather than depleting it. The farm is a very diversified operation that encompasses a wide variety of fruit and vegetables as well as pastured laying hens. Klippers Organic Acres supplies produce locally and throughout Vancouver through the means of farmers markets, restaurants, cafes, grocers, and through a very popular CSA program.
