Foxglove Farm
The historic 120-acre Foxglove Farm on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia is surrounded by forest, pastures, and creeks and borders the pristine Maxwell Lake. The farm currently produces strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, melons, greens, roots, and a wide range of annual Mediterranean vegetables. Diverse orchard plantings, grain production, and mixed livestock are in development.

The 75 acres of forest is managed using strict eco-forestry principles. Harvested trees will be milled and furniture products produced on-site.

Foxglove Farm is not only a working farm and eco-forestry project, but also functions as The Center for Art, Ecology & Agriculture offering short and long-term live-in programs and public events.

Our fresh farm products are available at the Tuesday and Saturday Salt Spring Island farmers markets, at local stores and at select local restaurants on Salt Spring Island and in Vancouver and Victoria.

Accommodations

On-farm accommodations are available in our restored historic buildings. For more information and to make reservations, please visit the Foxglove Farm Retreat website.
