Our market gardens and fields produce an abundance of vegetables. Garlic season starts in June with the picking of the curly garlic scapes. These are the above ground blossom tips whose removal enhances the underground bulbs’ growth. Garlic scapes are processed and dried providing a wonderful addition to winter soups and stews.
Our sweet little goat herd members provide fresh milk. The goats belong to our closed circle farming practice where they provide sustenance for us and our guests and also provide raw goat milk to produce our vineyard/grape vine spray. Raw milk contains wonderful antiseptic properties and enzymes that act as fungal control and give foliar nutrition to the plant. We do the same for our pasture and hayfields with no petrochemical fertilizers or inputs added to our land.
The fields and animals are Certified Organic and Certified Biodynamic by the Bio-dynamic Agriculture Society of BC – Certificate #10-500*31.
