Missing Goat Blueberry Farm – 07.25.11

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

The word pretty isn’t a word we used to associate with farming, until we started exploring the abundance of quaint farms in the Fraser Valley. In the case of Missing Goat Blueberry Farm there are several adjectives that come to mind: special, sweet, whimsical… and pretty.

The talent behind this certified organic blueberry farm in South Surrey is magazine Story Producer/Stylist Heather Cameron (below, with daughter Lily). Known for her gorgeous stylings, as seen in Style at Home, Country Living, Better Homes and Gardens and many other publications, it’s no surprise that everything about Missing Goat is appealing to the senses.

Missing Goat produces organic blueberries, garlic and other fruits used for their fabulous products. If you’ve never enjoyed a plump organic blueberry, you are in for quite a treat. Visitors to this sweet farm will visit The Shabby Shack store to find picked blueberries and garlic, slow-cooked Missing Goat jams and homemade blueberry pies. The charming garden shed-esque farm shop has Heather’s talents written all over it. It is simply adorable!

Doesn’t this pie look delicious? Missing Goat organic blueberry pies are freshly baked and available on Saturdays only. Please pre-order your pies by Thursday evening.

You may have already discovered Missing Goat jams at Roadhouse Bake Shoppe, Whole Foods, Urban Fare, Gourmet Warehouse and other retailers in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver. These old-fashioned jams are to-die-for delicious. We have enjoyed the Organic Very Very Raspberry jam with high tea at Little White House in Fort Langley. A perfectly sweet and tart spread for scones and toast.

Our newest delight is the Organic Strawberry with Black Pepper. Heather suggested we try it with sharp cheddar cheese. We did so and, well, you just have to try it. Has anyone tried the Organic Blueberry Lavender or the Organic Rhubarb Rosemary jam? We bet they are delicious. It never surprises us how much better a product tastes when it is hand picked, hand stirred, hand packaged and infused with the love of a local producer.

Heather shares that farming was not an occupation she thought she would ever take up. But with a renewed focus on the farm that came with her family’s dream home, she is enjoying every moment and word of Missing Goat is spreading. We think Missing Goat seems to be a perfect combination of Heather’s talents!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER, ANGY. THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. 

Update: We have learned that due to this summer’s crazy weather, the farm will be closed to the public this year after August 12, 2011. They have far too many orders to fill from the summer when the berries simply weren’t ready yet. Please put them on your list to visit next summer!
