Gelderman Farms is a family owned farm located in the beautiful Fraser Valley at Abbotsford, B.C.
Gelderman Farms works hard to bring Abode Restaurant and our customers quality pork products. Gelderman Farms believes to make the best pork products it has to start with the pigs. All pigs are raised in spacious pens with natural light and ventilation. Gelderman Farms uses a natural vegetable diet which is made on the farm – knowing exactly what the pigs are eating.
In purchasing quality grains to feed the pigs and applying the stringent Gelderman Farms standards, it results in high quality pork for our customers.

Overfishing is the greatest threat to our oceans today. The world’s marine life is quickly being depleted. An estimated 90% of all large, predatory fish are already gone from the world’s oceans. A recent scientific study predicted a world-wide fisheries collapse by 2048. The only solution is to turn back from the brink, and to begin consuming seafood in a sustainable manner.
