Dennis Skoworodko (Owner)

Hi, My name is Dennis and I am the owner of Our Farm.

"Our Farm"...it started with wanting tasty food. And wanting nutritious food. Food without chemical sprays and chemical fertilizers. Food that is non-GMO. Out of this “Our Farm” was born.

We strive to grow you tasty, nutritious, fresh, local, certified organic food. Food that has been grown with care for the environment in as sustainable ways as possible. With minimal packaging and energy use. Food that tastes great and is good for you.

We would be honored to be able to supply you and your family with food from Our Farm. We hope that you will make "Our Farm" your farm for all your fresh healthy veggies.

Deanna P

Meet the staff for our 2019 season - Deanna. This is Dee’s 5th season with Our Farm. Let’s ask her a few questions:

1. Which vegetable best describes you?
A tomato, because it would be silly to eat pizza or tacos without me.
2. If you were going to cook for your date, which vegetable would be your go-to?
Potatoes. Oven roasted, crispy potatoes.
3. If I could invent a holiday, it would involve....
Food and backyard fires and friends...wait, isn’t that every weekend in Summer?
4. Would you rather plant potatoes or dig up potatoes?
Both. And if eating them while planting or picking were an option, that would be ideal.
5. When I was five years old, I was pretty sure I would be...
A firefighter.
6. If you were stranded on an island and only had to eat one vegetable for a year, what would it be?
Potatoes. And I’d pray for tomatoes to rain from the heavens so I could make ketchup.
7. How many cups of coffee do you need to work at Our Farm?
Two.
8. What is your favourite thing about working for Our Farm?
The satisfaction of growing tasty vegetables!
9. If you were given a bowl of fresh cherry tomatoes, would you eat them all yourself or share them with a friend?
I’d hope my friend was sitting close by, because if I had to wait 10min for them I’m afraid they might be gone.

Layne M

Meet the staff for the 2019 season - Layne. This is Layne’s second season with Our Farm. Let’s ask him a few questions:

1. Which vegetable best describes you? Corn: I'm always growing and you never what you're gonna get!

2. If you were going to cook for your date, which vegetable would be your go-to? Tomatoes and onions so I know if she's a picky eater or not

3. If I could invent a holiday, it would involve.... Probably some skiing, backpacking, or cycling

4. Would you rather plant potatoes or dig up potatoes? Dig up!

5. When I was five years old, I was pretty sure I would be... My friend Lucas and I were going to be scubadivers together until my brother told me I could get eaten by sharks

6. If you were stranded on an island and only had to eat one vegetable for a year, what would it be? Kidney Beans

7. How many cups of coffee do you need to work at Our Farm? 2 or 3

8. What is your favourite thing about working for Our Farm? Being outside all day with great people!

9. If you were given a bowl of fresh cherry tomatoes, would you eat them all yourself or share them with a friend? I might share a couple....

Amber P.
 Meet the staff for our 2019 season - Amber. This is Amber's first season with Our Farm and she is off to a flying start. Let's ask her a few questions:
 
1.      Which vegetable best describes you? I think corn, because the best part is under all of the husk and it takes time to peel the layers away, but when you do it’s definitely worth it!
 
2.      If you were going to cook for your date, which vegetable would be your go-to? Hmm probably just a bunch of roasted veggies-zucchini, mushrooms, squash, asparagus, peppers, onions-with a little olive oil and some garlic. Simple but oh so good!
 
3.      If I could invent a holiday, it would involve.... It would be called the Summer Solstice Celebration! And like all good holidays would include good food, friends and family, and fellowship lasting as long as the sunlight. I love summer and I think celebrating the longest day of sunshine would be the best!
 
4.      Would you rather plant potatoes or dig up potatoes? Well, planting potatoes was one of the hardest parts of the job so far, so I’m hoping I’m more in shape by the time we dig them up and I can enjoy the process haha.
 
5.      When I was five years old, I was pretty sure I would be... I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever really had a, ‘when I grow up I’m going to be...’ dream/goal. Except for the time my sister went through her dolphin trainer phase. She’s older than I am so of course I wanted to be like her and become a dolphin trainer as well, even though I wasn’t sure I loved dolphins enough to want to train them!
I also went through a veterinarian stage a little bit later in life, which is strange because as people who know me are aware, I am not really an animal person!
 
6.      If you were stranded on an island and only had to eat one vegetable for a year, what would it be? If I were thinking analytically I would probably say spinach due to the fact that it’s high in all the good things for you, but going purely based on taste, I would have to say cucumbers. They’re just so crunchy and tasty-I just love em!
 
7.      How many cups of coffee do you need to work at Our Farm? Typically one cup before work, 1 and a half during coffee break, and usually another cup after the work day is done. The few times I haven’t had a cup before the day started, I could really feel it!
 
8.      What is your favourite thing about working for Our Farm? Honestly, there are so many thing I love about working at Our Farm! One of the best parts is being able to work outside and when the day is done, looking back and seeing the actual, physical results of your work. It’s extremely satisfying and I love it!
 
9.      If you were given a bowl of fresh cherry tomatoes, would you eat them all yourself or share them with a friend? I like to think I’d say, ‘of course I’ll share them!’ But I think I would do it out of obligation. Unless you are a very close friend, in which case the offer of food would be more genuine haha!
