Real Estate Gabriola Island, BC

The Gabriola Blog

Since we started ordering our groceries through Spud we have been trying to buy food grown as close to home as possible. The difficult part is ordering local breads and such due to the fact that nobody is growing grains on Vancouver Island…so I thought. Upon reading a local food magazine I discovered that a hand full of Vancouver Island farmers such as Sharon Rempel are growing heritage grains like spelt, “Utrecht Blue” bread wheat, and red fife wheat to mention a few. This piqued my curiosity and next year in our (hopefully) expanded garden I am looking forward to growing and eating some of these, if nothing else they are beautiful to look at.
