How it all began…
The deDood family has a rich history of dairy farming here in the North Okanagan. John & June began farming in 1983 on the deDood family farm. They raised 4 children, 2 of whom actively participate on the farm to-date.
In 2014 construction began on the state-of-the-art robotic milking barn and on June 1, 2015 – 100 head of Holstein cow’s moved in.
The excellent location of the barn made it an easy decision for John & June to decide to open a market attached to the barn. Providing high quality locally grown and crafted items, while educating the public about the dairy industry was apart of the inspiration to open Farmer John’s Market.
