Foxglove Farm is a 120-acre organic farm and education center located on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada. The farm is located on one of the oldest homesteads on the island, surrounded by thousands of acres of protected forest, pastures and fields, bordering the pristine Maxwell Lake.
The farm produces berries, asparagus, melons, greens, roots, a wide range of annual Mediterranean vegetables, as well as diverse orchard fruits. We also produce grains and pulses and manage a small flock of pastured laying hens.
Foxglove Farm is home to the Centre for Arts, Ecology & Agriculture. The Centre was established to demonstrate and interpret the vital connections between farming, land stewardship, food, the arts, and community well being. Public programs, classes, and events are offered throughout the summer and fall.
Foxglove Farm offers accommodations and retreats in beautifully restored cottages and in the original log home on one of the island’s finest heritage working farm properties.
The Distribution Coordinator organizes the washing, processing, and packing of all farm products, communications with chefs, preperation and delivery of restaurant orders, and assists in managing weekly farmers markets.
