Farm Profile – Heart Beet Organics

Amy Smith and Verena Varga are the owners of Heart Beet Organics located in North Wiltshire, Prince Edward Island. The two have been farming since 2010 and became Certified Organic in 2011. Amy and Verena grow over 40 different kinds of vegetables, with over 200 varieties including heirloom vegetables which are unique coloured varieties.

Amy and Verena grow their vegetables on 1.5 acres of land. With the use of their greenhouses they are able to start their vegetables early in the year, and offer winter salad as early as March.

Heart Beet Organics is connected with ACORN, the Atlantic organic network and they strive to help educate others interested in organic farming to do so. Currently they are working with two apprentices for the next few months teaching them about organic farming.

Amy and Verena offer a veggie pick-up at the farm and also sell their products at the Charlottetown Farmers Market for 10 months of the year, from March through December.
