It all began with an idea: to bring new life to an old farm.
In 1851 Bilston Creek Farm made its mark on history as the first settlement outside of Fort Victoria, several years before Canada would be founded. For years it was farmed by the Witty family, and treasures of that time still remain, from heritage apple trees, to beautiful old barn board, to rusted tools found buried in the earth.
When we discovered the farm, it had been left fallow for decades, but we could see the beauty beneath the brambles right away. Those years of wild growth left behind perfect soil for growing lavender, the inspiration for our flagship crop.
Today our vision is to build a farm that will remain for centuries to come, where anyone can come to experience the magic of farming. We hope you'll be a part of it!
We host workshops and retreats that invite guests to immerse themselves in farm experiences while taking in the beauty of this historic place. Join one of our upcoming events or bring your own - including weddings - to life.
