Olivia Talma and Taryn Belzer flagged down drivers along 208 Street at 68 Avenue to stop by the brand new Willoughby Farm market. The new market held its grand opening on Saturday (Aug. 10).

‘You can really taste the difference’

New stand sells fresh produce and fruit at corner of 208 Street and 67 Avenue in Willoughby

Like many first-time parents, Jordan Hurdal made some life changes after the birth of his daughter two years ago.

“From that point, I wanted to start growing my own items, with no sprays,” explained the 36-year-old.

“I am really concerned a lot more about what I am putting in my body.”

It also prompted a change on the Hurdal’s family farm, which they have had for more than 30 years.

Before, they just produced hay, but now they are selling fresh produce and fruit from their new stand, Willoughby Farm, which is at 6730 208 St. (just the curve on the corner of 208 Street and 67 Avenue).

They held their grand opening on Saturday.

“One of the main things we are trying to do is deliver fresh goods and try to deliver really high quality, farm fresh, local produce to people,” Hundal said.

“I am really just trying to deliver ultra-fresh products to people.

“I think you can really taste the difference.”

In addition to growing the produce, Hundal also has Chilliwack corn and berries from Abbotsford and Cloverdale.

They are also selling fresh pies.

They also have the farm’s miniature horse, Smokey, as well as a small lamb at the stand for kids to see.

The stand is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will be open until the end of October and then will re-open in April.
