What are your growing practices?

Although we are not certified organic, we have chosen a sustainable method of agriculture called the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, which uses the least harmful methods available to control continual attacks on our crops. At Taves Family Farms, we adhere to British Columbia and Canada’s requirements when applying agricultural chemicals and take great precautions to protect the land, our customers, staff and family. Watch this Video.

 

Are all your fruits and vegetables non-gmo?

Yes, they are all non-gmo, which means that our fruits and vegetables are grown from non-genetically modified seeds.

 

How is your Apple Cider treated?

The glass bottles are pasteurized, but the plastic containers are UV Treated. UV Treatment is an excellent alternative to heat pasteurization. It’s tree-to-bottle, cold-pressed goodness. Yum!

 

Where can I buy your Apple Cider?

The .909 L and 1.89 L sizes are available at our Country Store, and at select retail locations across the Lower Mainland. See our Cider Page for details and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates!
