As a native of Alberta, Mark spent some of the most memorable years of his youth playing in the pristine Rocky Mountains.
This is where his deeply rooted love affair for big mountain ranges, glaciers and jagged peaks began. In 1994 he left Alberta to start work in BC’s Silviculture industry. Planting trees throughout most of the province and bouncing back home for winters, he made the permanent move to Whistler in 1997. After immersing himself in the mountain culture of Whistler and playing to no end in its surrounding back country, it wasn’t long before Mark discovered the beauty and fertility of the Pemberton Meadows. First moving to town in 2004 then transitioning up the valley to Pemberton Haven’s current location in 2015. Respecting the rich farming history that Pemberton has to offer, Marks goal is to contribute to the Pemberton farming communities amazing legacy and to grow the Pemberton Haven farm in a sustainable manner.”
