North Peace SPCA selling fresh veggies in #MysteryFarmer fundraiser

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace SPCA has to sell 700 hills of potatoes after a local Mystery Farmer donated them.

Branch Manager Candace Buchamer says that earlier this year, a local farmer who wishes to remain anonymous started delivering fresh produce to the branch every Friday morning. The donations started arriving at the beginning of August, and the SPCA has been selling the consistent batches of fresh carrots and beans, as well as other fruits and vegetables ever since. The carrots cost $3.00 per bag, while the beans are selling for $2.50/bag.

In addition, the farmer has also planted 700 hills of red skin potatoes as part of the donation. Buchamer says that so far, the SPCA has only sold 56 hills worth of potatoes, and they need to sell the remainder before the colder fall temperatures arrive. The 3 lb. bags of potatoes are going for $5.00 each, although Buchamer says that the SPCA will offer bulk pricing to anyone that buys in bulk.

Pre-orders for the fresh produce are also available. The branch is running the fundraiser during regular business hours Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m. For more information, and to get updates every Friday on any other fruits or vegetables that have been dropped off, check out the BC SPCA – North Peace Branch’s Facebook page.
