Promoting A ‘Cache’ Of Local Produce
Prince George, BC – You may know it as a much-needed break for the kids on the long drive to Vancouver, or the perfect place to stop for lunch on your way back to Prince George…
Horsting’s Farm Market in Cache Creek re-opened under new ownership last September and just re-opened for the new season late last month. Now, comes word the business will receive a bit of a boost from the provincial government in a push to publicize just how much of its product is grown on-site at the farm.
As part of the Buy Local program, Horsting’s has received a grant of just over $11-thousand dollars…a portion of which will be used to showcase specific products grown on the acreage through a social media campaign and new website.
Owners Marc and Dianne Shane say not only have they been embraced by the community of Cache Creek and surrounding areas, but they’ve been given the opportunity to be part of something bigger. “The BC Government’s Buy Local program plays a promising role in Horsting’s future success and letting customers know we grow 90-percent of our produce on our 85-acre farm.
