Our Beginnings


Located at 3600 - 248 Street in Aldergrove, British Columbia, the Otter District Farmer's Institute was  incorporated in 1922 with twenty-five members in order to promote agriculture and agricultural knowledge, to work for farm legislation to improve farm conditions and to buy supplies at cost for it Members. 

One of the original bylaws said the aim of the Institute was to improve conditions of rural life so that settlement may be permanent and prosperous. This bylaw and many others remained in effect until June 22, 1979, when we officially became a co-op.
