Melanie Golba, and brothers Alvaro and Rodrigo Venturelli grow many varieties of vegetables on their 50 acre farm in Flamborough. The farm is certified organic by Pro-Cert Canada, and Plan B has been deeply committed to the value and principles of organic farming for over 20 years.
They operate a CSA (Community Shared Agriculture), collaborating with a dozen other local farmers as well as farm-based distributors to provide weekly boxes of local and imported organic produce to subscribers. Currently they have about 500 members and ship 300 weekly boxes to Hamilton, Halton and Toronto.
A few years ago they built The Plan B Farm Kitchen (inspected and approved by Public Health) and their prepared foods are now available at markets and in shares. Mixed Vegetable Kimchi is one of their specialties.
