Supporting Local -
Over the past few years, Mandair Farms has taken the initiative to bring local food closer to you through various farmers markets. We believe that in addition to our farm stand, we should be more accessible and convenient for everyone here in BC.
Over the course of the year we attend over 12 different markets, they can be found on our Location page.
Food is from a smaller ecological footprint – didn’t travel from across the world Food closer to home
The average meal travels 1,200 kilometres from the farm to plate. Food grown closer to home produces fewer transportation emissions, is fresher and supports local farmers. As the distance food travels decreases, so does the need for processing and refrigeration to reduce spoilage.
