about

img_1117

Located in the beautiful Slocan Valley of British Columbia our five acre farm bursts with  good food and pleasurable beauty throughout the season. Whether for sale or for our personal enjoyment, everything on the farm is organically grown and receives the attention necessary for producing healthy and productive crops and  gardens.

OUR FOOD & FLOWERS

Our repertoire of agricultural activity includes a u-pick blueberry patch, winter squash, cutting flowers, and our annual flock of turkeys, all of which are available at the farm or at local farmers’ markets.

Growing food for others is a small part of what we do on the farm. Our keen interest in healthy food ensures that our personal nourishment is also taken care of. Fresh or processed, our vegetables, fruit, berries and poultry warrant the time it takes to get them from the gardens and pastures to the table, the cold room or the freezers, and into the next season.

In 2016 we replaced part of our field crops with cutting flowers.  in 2017 our flowers will be available at the farm, farmers markets and as bouquet subscriptions.

OUR FRAGRANT AND CHARMING GARDENS

One must be comfortable with all kinds of flora and fauna to fully enjoy our ornamental gardens and the extensive lavender plantings that are located in different parts of the farm. The flowering trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials that we have planted over the years have become home and forage for numerous birds, beneficial insects, wild pollinators and our honey bees. If it was not for the later two, we would not be able to grow what we grow, and the beauty and bounty of our food and flowers would be lost.

We love what we do and are committed to our farm work, and to being the best land stewards that we can be.
