Hello, we are the Goerzen's! We have four amazing boys, a daughter-in-law, grandson and a granddaughter. Through the years, our family has had the vision to work together to create something special stewarding this great earth we are a part of. However, as life has a way of getting busy and demanding, sometimes our goals and desires can get pushed to the side, and before you know it, another year passes by...or in our case, something happens that brings your life to a sudden halt.
For us, that was seven years ago in 2013. At the age of 17, our second oldest son, Jesse, was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Let's just say that it changed his and our family's life forever. It has been a long and arduous journey with many ups + downs, but the one amazing thing that came through it for our family was our perspective on life, and how we lived that out. Life is unpredictable and can change at any given moment. It did for us...and brought us into a new season of life, simplifying everything, and bringing us back to our roots.
Although it was the hardest time of our life, some of the most precious, deepest, and meaningful moments came from it. This is where our name comes from, as it is the backbone to how we made it through that whole season. Our survival boiled down to the importance of our roots...our faith, family + friends.
We find ourselves wanting now, more than ever, to be able to spend time working together + producing sustainable, quality food, as well as offering an environment where people can come and just enjoy the beauty of this ten-acre property.
So, if you find yourself looking to get back to your roots, come on down and visit us here on the farm. We are a fun-loving family who would love to meet you!
Deep Roots Family Farm is an 8 acre, family-operated farm located Maple Ridge B.C., Canada. We have been a part of this community for over 40 years. Read 'Our Story' to learn more about how Deep Roots Family Farm came to fruition.
We have just recently moved locations and are working on food production with our gardens, microgreens and eggs. It has been an adventure starting a business during Covid running events for 2 years and then having to uproot everything and start fresh. It's not always easy but we get to do it together as a family and that's what matters.
We believe now more than ever quality matters. In everything we do we strive for excellence. We go the extra mile to make our customers feel valued. We grow all our produce organically without the use of any chemicals whatsoever. Which means you may have the odd imperfect produce but you know that it is the freshest food you will ever eat!
~Know your food, know your farmer!~
