Burnaby Market Manager
Raised in Vancouver, Maria now has a farm she operates in the Fraser Valley.
She grows pesticide-free vegetables, fruit and nut trees and raises miniature sheep for pets, mini goats, free-range chickens that supply organic fed eggs, and beehives that supply her with honey.
She also loves growing Peonies, Dahlias, and Sunflowers on her farm.
She says "farm life can be hard work at times but it's very rewarding".
