Endless Harvest closes in Ymir

After 17 years in business, Endless Harvest, the Kootenay’s organic food home delivery service, has closed.

After 17 years in business, Endless Harvest, the Kootenay’s organic food home delivery service, has closed.

“The time has come for me to do something new,” says Velvet Kavanagh, the owner of Endless Harvest.  “I’ve been at this for quite a while, and I’m looking forward to a change in my life.”

Endless Harvest served customers throughout the West Kootenay from their Ymir location.

Over the years, Endless Harvest has been a key supporter of many local organic farmers and suppliers.  Kavanagh has seen how the interest in local and organic food has developed over the years, as well as how local farmers have grown to fill that demand.

“It’s been great working with all our local and BC farmers, and how supportive of them our customers are,“ she says.  “The quality and variety of locally sourced food has increased tremendously since we started up.  The local food industry has grown so much.

“The connections we’ve made with our suppliers and customers has been so wonderful, and is one of the hardest parts of saying good bye.”

Endless Harvest is available to buy for anyone who’d like to continue the business.

“Our customers are very dedicated, and many have been quite sad by our closing.  I know they would be ready to support someone taking over,” Kavanagh says.
