Our family has lived on Bowen Island for 36 years, and on this farm for 26. We are committed to preserving and protecting the land and wildlife in our care. Our ten acres rests on the side of a valley edging the forests of Mount Gardner; the rain from the mountain feeds our creeks, our pond, and wetland.

We home many horses, but also provide a place for swallows in the barn, owls, birds of all kinds, bats, snakes, lizards, bees, frogs, geese, and deer.

Our flowers are grown on land that has never previously been agricultural, industrial or residential. We follow organic growing practices, adding no chemical amendments to the soil, and using no pesticides. Once harvested, our flowers are not treated with chemicals or preservatives.

Our flowers (excepting bulbs and tubers) are grown from seed on site, and as far as is possible, our seed is untreated, sourced from ethical suppliers and/or saved by us.
