Property description

Foxglove Farm is a 120-acre organic farm on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada. The farm is located on one of the original homesteads on the island nestled in a mountain, forest and lake ecosystem rich in flora, fauna and natural history. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected forest and agricultural fields, bordering Maxwell Lake, we are just minutes from hiking trails entering Mount Maxwell Provincial Park and less than 10 minutes to Ganges.

The farm produces strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, melons, greens, roots, a wide range of annual Mediterranean vegetables, as well as orchards of diverse varieties of peach, plum, apple, pear, quince, persimmon, fig, chestnut, and cherry. We also manage a small flock of laying hens, produce ten acres of grains and legumes, and have over 30 acres of hay and pasture.

The log house is a beautifully restored heritage farm house built in 1907.

The house is uniquely appointed with traditional décor, down comforters, fine linens and full bathrooms with locally made soaps.

The house has two private bedrooms: one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Two captain's beds (perfect for a child or smaller person) and a queen size futon are also in place to accommodate additional guests. The house sleeps 4 guests for the base price of $225. Additional guests can be accommodated up to a total of 6 guests. Extra guests are $25/night per person.

The Log House kitchen is fully equipped for family style meals. Bountiful baskets of hand-picked seasonal fruits, vegetables, and fresh eggs can be ordered in advance and be waiting for you on arrival. It's a foodie's haven, eat seasonal fresh organic foods that travel zero miles from our fields and orchards to your cottage door.

There is a dining table, private deck, barbecue, wood stove, and a full bath with antique claw tub and shower. Dogs with responsible owners are welcome. A one-time pet charge of $40 applies. Dogs in the log house are limited to the indoor porch area only.

Foxglove Farm is family-friendly and children of all ages are welcome.

While we do provide high speed wireless internet at no charge we encourage you to unplug and be inspired and revitalized by this naturally beautiful and healthful place.

The farm and land inspires community, gathering, eating, working and playing together whether you are a farm crew member or a guest. Foxglove Cottages and Heritage Log House are a great place to bring a group – sleeping up to 13 people family style.
