Mike and Mary-Louise Rust started Snow Goose Produce in the spring of 1984. Foodies in their own right with a history in the organic sustainable movement dating to the 1970's Mike and Mary-Louise wanted to share with the community their passion for delicious ingredients and local fare.
What once was a barn became a fully operating produce stand on Fir Island road. Over the last 25 years Snow Goose has grown to be a beloved destination for many locals and visitors from far and wide.
Mike and Mary-Louise’s youngest son Vico & his lovely wife Erika, who also share a great love for food and wine represent the second generation and now run Snow Goose Produce.
Mike and Mary-Louise rarely come into the stand these days. They are happily enjoying retirement :)
