The buzz from the field

The bees on the farm have been busy these past several weeks and they’ve also been on the move.

We found them swarming yesterday, the second time this season they’ve decided to take flight. If you’ve ever been in the midst of a swarm it sure is something to see…


Don’t worry, the bees were relocated to a new home by our bee keeper Russ Taylor from Silver Rill Corn.

Fair Update

Don’t forget to come visit your Favourite Farm Girl this weekend at the Saanich Fair!

Held at the Saanich Fairgrounds (1528 Stelly’s X Road, Central Saanich), this will be its 146th year running, making it the oldest continuous agricultural fair in Western Canada. You can find your Favourite Farm Girl in the Farmers’ Market section, just to the left of the main gate. Pamela actually had a key role in starting the farmers’ market at the fair.

She has been busy in the kitchen all month making lots of jam, jelly, and of course, our pure black currant concentrate. She will also have freshly made black currant tarts (made by Breadstuffs Bakery with our lovely black currants) and a variety of 5-inch pies (made by The Roost Farm Centre with our berries).

We can’t wait to see you at the Fair! Spend the day, there’s plenty to see and the parking is free!
