Fred Janzen: Electrician turned farmer & Monde Janzen: Raft guide turned farmer

Fred, Monde and their 5 children recently relocated from the Fraser valley to okanagan valley. In the Fraser Valley they lived on Fred's 5acres family farm where Fred lived since the age of 12. His parents Abraham Aldof Janzen and Elvira Janzen started the family farm in 1973 where they raised Fred and his two sisters. Fred's mother Elvira fondly known as oma grew vegetables and did a lot of canning. She grew alot of cabbages and made family favourite Borscht soup which she generously donated to her church family community.  She also graciously passed the family recipe and the love of canning to Monde. About 3acres of the farm was leased out to a farmer and Fred worked as an electrician out of town, mostly Fort McMurray.

Monde former raft guide on the Zambezi river Zambia is now a mother, wife, and farmer.

She began to grow vegetables on the family farm in 2012 using companion planting growing method. Friends and family were amazed at the taste and quality of the vegetables and encouraged her to sell them. Monde sold her vegetables to friends as U-Pick and at the farmers markets . 

  In 2013 she went back to school and studied agriculture technology diploma at the university of the Fraser Valley. 

In 2014 the family grew their first crop of Red Russian garlic, starting with 500 certified organic seed, on half an acre of family farm. As the inventory increased in 2015, they took out the front lawn and planted garlic. In 2016 and 2017 they took back 1/3 of the leased land and planted more garlic. They also sold their first commercial crop in 2017 and supplied fresh, no spray pesticide free garlic to most farm stores in the Fraser valley. 

In 2018 they expanded their production and bought twice the land in Kelowna BC . 

Currently they have approximately 55000 seed planted and look forward to new opportunities in the their new town. 


On may 11th 2019 mother's day weekend they will be opening the farm to the public which will include many activities for the whole family
