(Finally updated April 2017)
Murray Meadows Farm was started on paper way over in Victoria, British Columbia. In 2012, Evan Murray decided to move back to Newfoundland, to his family home & business, Murray’s Garden Centre in Portugal Cove. Brian Kowalski quit his job as a political hack and moved with him. The two of them started ploughing and building in 2012, and now in 2017, we are going into our fifth year of production.
We have been selling to our wonderful customers at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market since we started harvesting in 2013. As well, we sell to a number of excellent restaurants including Rocket, Fixed, Raymond’s, The Merchant Tavern, Mallard Cottage, Adelaide, Celtic Hearth, Chinched, The Fifth ticket and more. We also have a Community Supported Agriculture program whereby customers pay us in advance for weekly vegetable deliveries through the season.
Although not certified organic, we only use inputs and methods that are approved for use on certified organic farms.
Anyone is more than welcome to come visit the farm, please just contact us to arrange a date and time.
