The Preserved Seed Bakery & Mate Factor Tea House
The Preserved Seed Bakery & Mate Factor Teahouse is a community business devoted to restoration at every level. The folks who work in the business live on a small village farm, fifteen minutes from Nelson, where they raise goats, chickens and other livestock. Over the course of their thirty year history as a community, they have come to see the value of eating foods from as close to the source as possible. In this ever-changing world it is becoming more and more difficult to find good, healthy food. On their household table, they strive for the best of foods, fresh, wholesome and organic as much as possible.
A couple of years ago, members of the community passed through Nelson and sensed a similar awareness and concern for healthy living and eating. On recognizing that this is where they wanted to put down roots, they purchased the old Preservation House Restaurant at 202 Vernon where they established The Preserved Seed Bakery and Mate Factor Teahouse.
The Co-op carries an assortment of packaged Yerba Mate tea supplied by Mate Factor in our grocery department and also Bulk Green Mate in our bulk herb and spice section.
Visitors are also welcome at the Bakery, Teahouse or village farm.
