Our farm has something for every interest. From livestock to food forests to gardens and orchards, this farm provides a variety of experience and skill-development for everyone. As farmers and teachers, we are always eager to learn and to pass on what we know, so the exchange of knowledge and ideas is two way. There is also room here to experiment with new ideas. There is hiking and swimming either on the property or close by. Meals can be eaten overlooking the gorgeous views from the bluffs. There is a lot of space on the bluffs, in the woods or marsh to explore. The farm is about 10 kms out of Duncan in one of the most fertile farming areas on Vancouver Island, so meeting other farmers and exchanging ideas is an important feature of life. The food is fantastic and most of it is grown right here. If you enjoy wildlife, you might catch a glimpse of the beavers who keep the water in the marsh. There are deer and rabbits everywhere. Mink cross the driveway regularly. At night, owl hooting and frog-song will be your lullaby. There is nowhere better to spend a summer.
