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 a ten-acre, family-operated farm located in the heart of Maple Ridge B.C., Canada. We have been a part of this community for over 40 years, and have lived on this acreage for more than 20 of those years. Read 'Our Story' to learn more about how Deep Roots Family Farm came to fruition.
We've had a long standing family vision to do something like this, and 2020 is the year it begins! Planning and starting to live out the vision of 'Deep Roots' has been an exciting + fun challenge!
We are a seasonal operation, and the time of year will reflect on what is available on the farm. Whether it be taking a tour of the beautiful rhododendrons in full bloom, buying produce from our market garden, purchasing flowers from our fresh cut garden, utilizing the U-pick blueberries, booking a wedding ceremony, or visiting our pumpkin patch, we guarantee there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
In the coming months + years, we look forward to serving you well. Whether you are looking for a more sustainable, healthy way of eating, or whether you find yourself wanting to get away from the busyness of life, we know you will enjoy the experience of all that Deep Roots Family Farm offers.
So, don't be shy and come say hi. We'd love to meet you!
