Welcome to Winderberry &
Edibles Farm + Café + Catering

First established in the 1960s, Winderberry Nursery came under the care of green-thumbed, thoughtful-hearted Jack Steedman and Glenda Wah in 1984. From two greenhouses, 2,500 square feet and a sell-out by June of that first year, the business has expanded over 35+ years to 25,000 square feet of greenhouse space along with a nursery specializing in hardy trees, shrubs and perennials, operating from March through October every year.

While Glenda and Jack remain the heartbeat of Winderberry, and are still involved in many aspects of the business, the next generation of family farmers have brought a new and renewed focus on innovative gardening, spectacular flowers and farm-to-table dining (meals serving the local community and summer time visitors to the Columbia Valley) to both commercial and retail customers in BC and Alberta.

Their daughters Lin and Anna have been involved in some capacity with the greenhouse and nursery since they were toddlers and have embraced the opportunity to take on the Winderberry legacy.

Lin along with husband Oliver and boys Cade and Ryley, run the certified-organic Edible Acres Farm and CSA program, and are frequent fixtures at summer farmers’ markets. And as a natural extension, offering farm-to-table deliciousness, Edible Acres Café & Catering is run by Anna with partner, Chef Randy MacSteven and their son Luke.

On any given day, you might find Papa Jack checking for eggs in the chicken coop with Ryley, age 3, or Luke age 8, delivering a basket of just-dug potatoes to his mum and dad in the café for the next day’s famous Eggs Benny, or Cade age 5, helping mom open up the greenhouse doors to say good morning to the plants. – All the signs of a growing family, in every way; a family whose values are rooted in healthy living, sustainability, and a deep love for the place that grows them all.

“The TRUE ”farm to table” café /caterer in the Windermere Valley… this family owned and operated delight is the best there is for FRESH food, from morning to lunch, for harvest dinners, weddings, tastings and everything in between. Don’t forget the season long fresh garden to counter organic vegetables, homemade dips AND if you ask… fresh cut flowers from the adjoining family owned nursery… nothing can compare or compete with this quiet jewel, set just off highway 93 in windermere.”
