Windset Farms Wins British Columbian ‘We Heart Local’ Award
VANCOUVER, B.C. - The local British Columbian produce community recently honored Windset Farms with the ‘We Heart Local’ award. The award pays tribute to the community’s favorite local greenhouse or veggie grower in B.C.
“Earlier this year, we had the honor of receiving the ‘World’s Best Tomato Grower’ award at an international event, and we feel even more fortunate after winning this local award,” said John Newell, COO of Windset Farms. “We could not have done it without our supportive Friends in Freshness® who voted, and we hope to give back to them and our local consumers by continuing to supply safe, delicious, and sustainable fruits and vegetables.”
Currently in its second year, the We Heart Local Awards is the first-ever community driven awards program to celebrate food and agricultural producers across B.C., according to a press release. The awards showcase the favorites of the B.C. food community in fifteen categories.
The We Heart Local Awards is a partnership between the B.C. Agriculture Council, the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, Global TV, Taku Resort & Marina, The B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets, The B.C. Dairy Association, LOCO B.C., the B.C. Restaurants and Foodservices Association, and Edible Vancouver.
Congratulations on your latest win, Windset!
