Our Farm


To provide our guests with the freshest organic ingredients, we are fortunate to have our own organic farm raising fruits, vegetables and herbs.  Depending on the time of year, we produce carrots, beans, beets, peas, chive, numerous herbs, kale, chard, microgreens, squash, cucumber, apples, rhubarb, blueberries, radish, tomatoes.  The beginning of each planting season also gets the creative juices flowing with one or two experimental crops.

What we can't grow or if we do not produce enough, we proudly purchase from like-minded local farms.  Many of these farmers can be found Sundays at the Cedar Farmers Market at The Crow & Gate Pub.  We highly recommend Living Soil Farm (Yellow Point), Salt & Harrow Organic Farm (Parksville) and Farmship Grower's Coop (Ladysmith).


Our on-site bees help pollinate our trees, vegetables, fruits and flowers.  The hives are owned and placed here courtesy of Fredrich's Honey Farm at 2798 Cedar Road.  When ready for harvest, Fredrich's will extract and produce the honey for us uniquely from these hives.  The honey is then packaged and delivered to the restaurant.


Raising a heritage pigs is possibly our most exciting project allowing us to offer home-raised and house-made additions to our charcuterie program.


The newest members of our farm family are these lovely laying hens.
