Robin Hunt, President
Robin Hunt is passionate about our farmers, from sitting on the South Cariboo Farmers Market board, to coordinating central BC events with Young Agrarians to working alongside Small Scale Meat Producers Association and running her own farm Big Rock Ranch with her husband Johan Bos. Originally from the lower mainland she saw the real disconnect from our farms and farmer as most people shopped at their local large box grocery stores and never had a relationship of where their food was coming from. Her passion started as hobbyist farmer in her late teens and then followed into a full fledged career, now farming 148 acre ranch in Buffalo Creek BC she raises heritage layers and meat birds, runs a 1 acre mixed fruit and vegetable market garden and runs a tiny home B&B. She loves to see the community a farmers market creates, the access to business opportunities for farmers and crafters alike, and the face-to-face experience of shopping at your local farmers market.
I have been on the Board of Directors of the South Cariboo Farmer’s Market for seven years, and have been the market manager for the past three years. I am a farmer, and have been growing food in the South Cariboo since 1998. Growing vegetables and sharing them with others is my passion. My family and I live at the Horse Lake Community Farm Co-op.
My second year at the board of the farmers Market. Passionate about local food security and business development for the area. Looking forward to grow the market and inspire other people to join the farmers market. For 2019 I would like to see more producers and local produce sold at the market. Let’s make 2019 the best market yet
