     Sutcliffe Farms is the largest Asparagus producer in British Columbia Canada. Our asparagus brand is called "Kootenay Green" and we harvest over 100 acres of asparagus a year. Each piece is hand-picked ensuring the highest quality spear each and every time.

 

     The farm soil type is classified as silt clay loam and is situated on a rich fertile alluvial flood plain. Our asparagus is sub irrigated by the Kootenay River located adjacent to our farm. Most asparagus is grown on sand with all water and nutrients added. Our unique conditions produce a perfect asparagus spear using the natural native minerals to create a nutritious taste like no other.

 

     Our farm was established in the 1950's and has produced asparagus among many other vegetables. With over 40 years of production we have created a large clientele and sell half our yield at the farm gates. Call ahead to place your order to ensure availability. We also welcome you to visit us and take our Friday farm tour.

Seasonal Pickers Needed

     Picking asparagus is the only time you get to lay down on the job. Our pickers are pulled along with a picking trailer. They snap off the asparagus spears at ground level then transfer them into lugs beside them. We also have a sorting crew. The asparagus season lasts about 6 weeks.

 

     Asparagus is a seasonal crop which starts the last week of April or sooner and goes until June 15. Asparagus grows depending on ground temperature, and can grow as much as 1 inch an hour. In ideal temperatures the fields may need to be picked twice a day.

 

     Accommodations available for traveling pickers that are heading on to the cherry season. Our accommodations are free to our employees. The 18 person bunk house includes a kitchen, laundry and a rec room. There is high speed Internet and satellite TV.
