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.


That’s nice for Cache Creek, now how about something like this here, to promote local farms?

My family loved stopping at Horsting. Was sad when it closed. Best of luck to the new owners, we look forward to stopping in again

Always support local if I can. You can get a good piece of pie at Horstings among other things.

If we can grow our farmers market here, then we can grow and sell more local produce.

Quesnel and many other places have great farmers markets.

They used to get a spicy cheese in that was great on nachos.

We had a farmers market of sorts here for over 2 years but had to close down due to lack of customers. They had 80 to 100 regulars but that is just not enough to keep something like that going.

The former bakery staff at hot stings opened a great pizza and sandwich place on the main road in cache creeks. It is excellent, stopped there for years and phone ahead to order their great pizzas. Not sure if it’s listed as Anies bakery or if listed as pizza either way it’s the original hot stings crew.

Hmmm. Horstings, thanks auto correct

Had one of Annie’s pizzas last year on our way south – really good pizza!
Glad to see Horstings open again and will definitely stop there.
