Meet the Team

At Purity Farm and Garden, we take pride in our history. We have been serving generations of B.C. farmers, ranchers and homeowners.


Owner, President

John is the third generation owner of Purity Feed, purchasing the business from his dad Sandy, in 2002. When John bought Purity Feed, the business was a regional supplier of farm and feed products with retail farm supply stores in Kamloops and Merritt,  BC. In 2003 a new warehouse and retail facility was built in Kamloops to supply more services and supplies to Purity customers. At this time John expanded by developing a technical sales and services division to supply goods and services to the specialty crop markets, forage and hay growers as well as establishing a foothold in the aerial application of range and pasture products for invasive weeds throughout BC. John's passion for growth and change has led Purity Feed to become one of the most respected independent retailers of farm supply products, agricultural services and reclamation supplies in North and South Central BC.

Being a family owned business with deep roots in the communities that Purity serves John believes in giving back to the communities that support Purity Feed. Some of the causes that Purity Feed supports include: Royal Island Hospital Foundation, Kamloops Hospice, Ponderosa Lodge, Little Britches and BC High School Rodeo, Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association and 4H.

Our Team



    Robson started his agricultural career in Southern Ontario while working at the Ministry of Agriculture in Ontario, following his graduation in environmental science at the University of Guelph. Prior to joining Purity in 2002, Robson was the senior agrologist for Canadian Imperial Ginseng, one of the leading ginseng growers in Canada. Robson has developed Purity Feed's technical sales and agricultural consulting division into a leading specialty products and services provider. His passions for problem solving, improving farmer/rancher efficiencies and providing exceptional customer service has helped Purity drive change for the company and the industries that it serves.



    Ryan was a young local that came to work under Robson while studying at Thompson Rivers University. After graduating from TRU in 2016 Ryan joined Purity Feed on a full-time basis as a technical sales and services rep calling on customers in parts of BC that Purity Feed was under-represented. Ryan’s dedication to process, punctuality and seeing projects through to completion have helped Purity Feed develop not only into new regional markets for its existing products but new markets and new services in the oil and gas transmission industries, forestry and mine reclamation and tree fruit industries.



    Mary Ellen is one of the bright smiling faces behind the success of Purity Feed. Now in her fourth decade with the company she has seen change, experienced growth and has helped solve countless questions that many of our employees, customers and staff are always trying to figure out. If you have questions regarding the Canadian Cattle Identification program (ccia), livestock waterers, poultry health or home garden needs she is the one to contact!



    When you find a good person, hang on to them… Michele is that person. Michele has been running our Merritt Retail operation for the last 33 years. Michele and her Merritt team take pride in providing a well-stocked, efficient retail farm store and garden centre that services the farms, ranches and home-owners of the Nicola and Similkameen Valley’s with everything that is needed to help make a farm and ranch run efficiently. Her eye for detail and passion for quality product has made our Merritt facility the envy of many people in the farm supply industry.



    Carol joined the Purity Feed Team in the fall of 2018 as the Kamloops retail store manager. Carol and her Team have helped Purity Feed develop from a seasonal store that offered products to farmers and ranchers to a beautiful retail store that is always changing and offering new interesting and practical things for our customers to buy. Blundstone Boots, candles, specialty plants and pots are all some of the things that she has added to make things happen! If you are a supplier looking to sell something to us or a customer looking for something unique feel free to contact Carol.



    Barb is the lady that helps to make sure that all of our numbers are in check and that all of our sales and purchases are accounted for. If you have any questions on your bills or comments on our bills she is the one to contact.
