The sun is shining and the honey bees are loving it! We use all sorts of different pollinators on the farm, these bees are from our friends over at Coastal Honey – and their honey is fantastic!

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, which means we’re busy in the fields. While spring hasn’t officially sprung, we have our hands full pruning, weeding, fertilizing and building the soil back up so all of our berries will be plump and packed with all of the vitamins possible.
It’s a big job but one that’s ‘berry’ necessary.
We also have lots of our delicious black currant concentrate, jams, jellies and frozen berries still available.
Don’t miss your Favourite Farm Girl at the Christmas in the Manger Craft Fair next weekend.
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Saanich Fairgrounds on Nov. 25 and 26.
Black currant concentrate makes a fantastic gift. It’s a perfect alternative to flowers for your host, a stocking stuffer, or just a great item on its own. Our jams and jellies are also great accompaniments to any holiday meals you may be preparing.
If you can’t make it this event, don’t worry. We have black currant concentrate, jams, jellies and frozen berries available at the farm by appointment. Please call 250-652-5227 and we’d be happy to set up a time that works for you.
To My Wonderful Customers & Good Friends,
