900g of Locally Grown, Organic Sunchokes
Tucked in the heartland of the Annapolis Valley’s farming belt, TapRoot Farms merges deeply-held family farming traditions with the most established organic heritage in Nova Scotia. The land on which TapRoot Farms operates is in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
Since purchasing the organic farm in 2007, Patricia Bishop and Josh Oulton have been steadily increasing the number of acres in transition to organic and today TapRoot Farms is 70% organic.
Josh and Patricia instill the virtues of environmental responsibility in their three children–Izaak, Lily, and Frank–while involving them in all aspects of the farming operation. The family grows delicious veggies and fruit, raise free-range hens for eggs, and pastured animals for meat.
