On Vancouver island we refer to farms as properties as small as a couple of acres to large tracts of land to 160 acres. With our growing climate, small pieces of land can be very productive. So whether you are looking for space to have a large garden or greenhouse operation to a fully commercial dairy, hog or poultry operation the Island will accomodate.
The local food and organic movement has gained a lot of popularity in recent years and farmers markets have flourished. It has been reported that 94% of the food consumed on the Island comes from the mainland, so the possibilities are endless.
Vineyards have also become very popular in our region as the industry has exploded in British Columbia since 2000. The soil and climate conditions on the Island have spawned some great local vineyards north of the Malahat. Also horse properties and the activities that go with them are very popular and sizes range from 2 acres and up.
Whether you are considering a large commercial operation or a small retirement or hobby farm the Island is a fabulous option. Call me if I can help.
