Across the Creek Organics is located in Pemberton Meadows, and is operated by Brenda and Bruce Miller along with their five boys. The 4th generation family farm produces organic potatoes which are distributed throughout B.C. Across the Creek Organics is one of the largest providers of organic potatoes. Half the land consists of wild wetlands and old growth cedar groves, making for a uniquely beautiful and fertile farm.

Bruce and Brenda Miller are not only Certified Organic, but also carry certification as seed potato providers. They ship across the country, featuring varieties like the Red Chieftain, White Cascade and White Rose. They also sell a wide range of goods to supportive local restaurants and markets. For instance, their potatoes are also used by Schramm Vodka, a local distillery in the Pemberton area. Look for the distinctive “Across the Creek Organics” label on our potatoes in your local grocery store.

We are a group of new, young farmers on the earlier part of our journey to becoming established, small-scale organic farmers. Our journey started on one acre of land generously provided by the Helmers (long-time organic growers) in the Pemberton Meadows in 2009. This first year, Sarah McMillan and Gavin Wright started the experiment and were later joined in the 2010 season by friend and fellow UBC farm apprentice, Simone MacIsaac. 2010 also saw Rootdown put down some permanent ‘roots’ on their very own piece of land, all the while continuing to lease the well built-up and fertile land of the Helmers.

We grow a variety of organic veggies, chicken eggs and rare-breed pork and market them in Pemberton, Whistler, Squamish and Vancouver at Farmers Markets, to restaurants and through our CSA harvest box program.
