Our 16 acre farm is located in the heart of Gibsons on the beautiful traditional territories of the Squamish (skwxwú7mesh), Sechelt (shíshálh), and Tla’amin and Klahoose nations.

On the farm we raise heritage breed lamb & Kune Kune pigs. We grow mixed vegetables for restaurants and market, cut flowers and we host a u-pick pumpkin patch every October.
