Ever since Great Grandfather John purchased his first plot of land back in the 1930s, farming has remained a family tradition. Three generations later, and still located in the southern lands of the Fraser Valley, Taves Family Farms continues to thrive. Only, now it’s John’s grandson, Loren Taves, who operates the farm along with his wife, Corinne, and their children.

We will be the first ones to tell you that living on a farm in the Fraser Valley is living the dream. One farm quickly grew to a few, and now we harvest everything from apples to heirloom tomatoes to pumpkins. We decided to share our gifts by creating an agritourism attraction called the Applebarn. Every August, our communities tell us that they eagerly wait for the doors to open so they can pick their own apples or bring their families out for some fall family entertainment!

Mission Statement

We care about the future of our land, our children and our communities. For this reason, we will always grow and share food that we are proud of.

Vision Statement

The land we own is a gift that must be nurtured, respected and preserved. As trusted by the generations before us, we aspire to be a leading model in sustainable agriculture.

From our family to yours, we invite you to experience A Taste of the Country.
