Glade Organics is a small-scale veggie farm situated in the beautiful West Kootenay Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Ross Petrie, an Irishman, and Mira Grbich, a local from Pass Creek, are first-generation farmers.
Surrounded by mountains in this lovely valley we are entering our fifth year farming on this beautiful parcel of fertile land right between the two cities of Nelson and Castlegar BC, near the Glade General Store on Highway 3A.
It is our mission to cultivate an organic sense of community that encourages
sustainable agriculture and to distribute quality, organic, local and fresh produce.

We operate our farm as a clean, green space that promotes
community and relationships while caring for the environment and ourselves. We hope

We value living the change we want to see in the world.
Once again, we are opening the farms' doors May-October on Tuesday evenings 3-6 PM and offer a farm stand to the public.
