for Airdrie Homegrown’s Vision
Growing up in Carstairs, I’ve seen Airdrie boom over the years. As the population explodes and edges continue to grow, much of that growth looks all too familiar. The same shops - the same set up - the same cookie cutter image.
Alberta has so much to offer - so many creative trailblazers. Take a trip down any farmers market and you’ll see and taste some of the amazing creations Albertan's have made. Why do they have to be weekend indulgences? Why can’t we showcase our best on a daily basis in our homes?
Let’s bring some creativity to Airdrie. Show the world that we support local businesses and that we aren’t just another cookie cutter town.
Meet Our Team They're awesome!
Owner / Founder
I may have grown up in Carstairs, AB, but Airdrie has always had a special place in my heart. My dad has owned and operated a cattle farm just outside of Airdrie for the past 47 years. All of my 6 siblings and myself, have worked at his farm at some point in time. I still continue to work at the composting pad that operates at the farm.
After high school, I originally sought a career in law. I worked my ass off to get a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice and then a law degree in Saskatchewan. I moved to Ontario briefly to finish the process in becoming a lawyer, and then moved back home to start a family.
My husband and I welcomed two adventurous little girls: Carter in 2015 and Maisyn in 2017. After having my girls, I decided to take the dive into starting my own business and Homegrown was born. Every step of the process has been difficult but exciting. I can’t wait to share with you all of the amazing things I’ve found!
Want to know my favourite thing about Alberta? The Rocky Mountains. There are no words to express how beautiful they are and how at peace I feel when I’m there. Go explore our backyard!
If you think you’ve peaked, find a new mountain.
Homegrown was born out of a love for locally made food and a desire to have Alberta’s best easily accessible in Airdrie. From there, we found a collection of trailblazers – Albertan’s who were willing to take a risk and make something they love.
We have all your essential items for your pantry, bathroom, and closet – all made in Alberta. You’ll also find handmade décor that will make your home one of a kind.
