Ruby Red Farms
Meet Ivan Mishchenko, our friend & partner since 2003 from Ruby Red Farms in North Saanich, BC.
- Ivan grew up on the east coast in London, Ontario, and started Ruby Red Farms with his wife, Ruby Commandeur. Ruby grew up in Victoria.
- Before becoming a farmer, Ivan had started and sold his own high tech company.
- Ivan’s signature dish is gluten-free vegan blueberry crumble – de-lish!
- The couple started their 20 acre farm on the Saanich Peninsula in 2001, with almost 12,000 blueberry bushes!
- Today, Ivan’s continuous support of local food banks gives those less fortunate access to organic foods.
- Ivan has a community of friends and family that give tremendous support to the farm and Ivan’s family.
- Give their certified organic blueberries a try in our Blueberry Margaritas recipe – now all you need is a bit of sunshine!
