Lytton company nominated for Small Business Award

The Ranch’s Class “A”  compost is made from organic material diverted from the waste stream. It is used to grow certified organic alfalfa, hops and beef and supports the organic dairy industry in the Lower Mainland.

The company is entering its fifth year of certified organic operation. Its website says it makes up to 50 per cent of its compost output available to other agricultural operations in the B.C. central interior. It replaces chemical fertilizers, retards weed and pest growth and increases moisture retention so less irrigation is required.

The Best Community Impact Award, sponsored by Vancity, goes to the company that’s truly making a difference in their community. According to the Awards criteria, “This business has taken positive action to invest in their community and sees social responsibility as an integral part of the business’ success.”

Nominations for the awards closed Nov. 30 and businesses with the highest number of votes in each category will be announced as the Top 10 on Dec. 11. The Top 5 finalists will be announced Jan. 29, 2016.
