For those who are familiar with the Salt Spring Coffee story, it comes as no surprise that organic farming is part of our company's roots and everyday culture. Our co-founders Mickey McLeod and Robbyn Scott started out as organic farmers with their own market garden on Salt Spring Island, and as part of our 1% For the Planet membership, we partner with a range of non-profit organizations whose mandate is to revolutionize our food system. One such organization is Young Agrarians.

Visiting parters at origin is very important. It increases transparency and allows us to understand and help our farming partners overcome the challenges that they face.
