Backyard chickens – It’s easy when you know how!

A 2 hour hands on, common sense workshop on how to ensure your chickens give you and your family an excellent source of local food and lots of pleasure. Learn how to avoid common pitfalls of starting a back-yard flock.

We have raised chickens on our small peninsula farm for over 30 years, experimenting with many different breeds, learning through experience what works and what doesn’t.

Reserve your place. Limit 12 participants per workshop

Yesterday we had a solar array installed by Viridian Energy Co op which should have us carbon neutral on our farm, in the store and workshop. We had hesitated to move forward on this long planned project but finally took the plunge and feel really good about it. Another green initiative is the return of the new pro form feed sacks, which are a #5 recyclable. We have a tote for you to put them in and we will be recycling it when full. IMG_5440

In the meantime Constance has been farming the land and it’s an oasis out there! Great meat and veggies that you can buy with confidence, that she sells through the store and farm markets.

You can order directly from Constance, text or call her at 778 922 2822 or

e mail  her at Ilovethisfarm@gmail.com.IMG_5444

Almost Spring, 2016

Quick up date on the goings on around here. The horses keep us busy every day, playing “tetras” with them, making sure every one gets a chance to stretch their legs and roll in the mud. We have reached that critical “3 week” window on our first in foal mare, Valentine. The camera is up and we are keeping a sharp eye on her.

The yearlings are developing wonderfully, becoming monsters some days, a good thing I think, as they really develop the bodies and minds of runners, just a bit hard on us!!!!

Our sows were both bred this week by Angus so hopefully we’ll be seeing piglets in June.

Patsy cow was delivered by us to her new home with the gents at the Fickle Fig. I’m sure they will produce some great food with her milk after she calves in the summer, we also returned her cousin, Ferdinand, to the crew at Ten Acres. We  love having a truck and trailer that can do the jobs needed by small farmers.

2 of the 3 mares in Vancouver have been bred and will return home this week.

The chickens are starting to pick up egg production, and the orders for Aprils influx of young birds are flowing in. We are almost sold out on the layers, still meat birds left at this point though they are also going fast.

Keep trying to get things planted, weeded and pruned, but must admit that is an area of least importance. The book keeping is pretty intense at this time of year and

attention due to the many deadlines I mustn’t miss!

In the mean time we keep providing great hay and straw to our clients, another beautiful big load [36 tons] filled the barn today, so with that, I will go soak in a bath before finishing off [ie checking all animals and doing a late night feeding]the bedding pellet truck will be here at 7 in the morning and that comes around far too quickly
