Log Barn 1912 began humbly and simply in 1995, created to champion the culinary pleasures of the Mennonite heritage and British Columbia’s cultural history. Today, Log Barn continues to embrace the community’s bounty of agricultural and culinary riches, but on a much larger scale. As dramatically as the company’s reach has grown, however, the same respect for quality and tradition reigns supreme.
Log Barn 1912 produces over 140 private label products. We take pride in producing as many of our packaged delicacies as possible on-site. These recipes harken back to pages from Mennonite family cookbooks. Log Barn treasures this heritage, maintaining the highest possible quality of goods at all times to do our forebears justice. Armed with a suite of recipes known only to our owners, the Log Barn 1912 brand has earned its place as a cultural icon, both locally in Okanagan and abroad.
Some of our favourite creations include old-fashioned sausages, cheeses, pies, pastries, jams, and jellies. It has always been our utmost privilege and pleasure to share these treats with neighbours, as well as the community beyond our neck of the woods. Food is a cultural experience that transcends all kinds of differences and distances. It is more than just sustenance - good food brings people together. At the heart of Holdeman Mennonite culture, the culinary history of our region is warm and nourishing to both the body and the soul.
Forged by the rich history of our community and endemic to this rugged yet gorgeous Canadian landscape, Log Barn 1912’s appreciation of our heritage emphasizes doing things the right way over cutting corners. Our handmade products are not easily copied by competitors. Authenticity is, by its very definition, impossible to fake. The market always knows the difference and appreciates the real deal. Log Barn 1912 is excited to be able to cater to the discerning customer.
The upscale, luxury food retail sector in Canada has grown steadily over the past decade, relatively untouched by the macroeconomic fluctuation of the market at large.
