About the Farm
Located on the Sunshine Coast, BC
Myrtle Point Heritage Farm, Powell River BC
Well, as most of you know, you can plan all you want, but life seems to have other plans… In 2009 we started working this 30 acres of raw land on the Sunshine Coast, which backs the wild of coastal BC. To the north a forest that stretches all the way up the pacific coastal mountain range. To the south only a few blocks away the ocean. We were in total awe of the beauty and the abundance that nature had to offer. Bumble bees, hummingbirds, berries, bears, eagles, wolves, whales & so much more.
With a passion for good pure food, gardening and a healthy living environment we started living out a dream of supplying our own needs from the land we live on. First it was a vegetable garden, then it was chickens for eggs, which led to pigs, goats, cows, turkeys & bees, all heritage breeds.
We started making soaps, creams & healing balms from our milk & honey. Realizing how powerful the healing properties of pure untainted elements can be has led us here. We’ve been given the opportunity to share our farmstead products, all while keeping a balance with nature. As nature intended.
“You are what you eat.”
We all know, that to maintain good health you need a balanced diet. But do we take into consideration the diet of the animal producing that food. Does it matter? We believe it does, as the old saying goes,

Our heritage chickens free roam on our 30 acres of raw land, foraging on bugs, insects, wild berries, wild grasses and clover and other native species of plants, shrubs and trees, which also give our chickens shelter from predators. They also get organic grains.
Free range Berkshire pork
Using modern rotational grazing techniques, our heritage breed pigs (Berkshire), free roam on raw land and are able to exhibit natural pig behavior, such as rooting, foraging, and bathing in wallows from natural springs on the farm. Along with foraging, our pigs are fed brewers grains from Townsite brewery and supplemental feed.
