    Description

    Our Farm is a 97 acre therapeutic farm on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC! We are part of a residential community, where adults with developmental disabilities live, work and learn together with their caregivers. We grow a broad range of vegetables for our own use and an extensive range of herbs, for cooking and products to sell. We have cattle, sheep and a small flock of chickens.
