Salt & Harrow is a 37-acre organic farm. The farm grows over 50 varieties of vegetables, fruits, legumes and herbs and has a small flock of heritage breed hens for eggs. The farm is situated between French Creek and the historic E & N Railway on Vancouver Island, British Columbia in the Qualicum First Nation Territory. The farm sits in the rain shadow of Mount Arrowsmith and receives more sunshine than most other parts of Vancouver Island. This has led many locals to refer to the area as the “banana belt.”
Our mission is to provide local customers with a full vegetarian diet of artisan quality organic fruits and vegetables. We hope our food is a reflection of the place in which it is grown and the joy we take in growing it. By caring for the soil we strive to produce nourishing food, made by land, healthy soil and hard working farmers.
The farm produces asparagus, carrots, lettuce, beets, kale, tomatoes, peppers, greens, potatoes, raspberries, strawberries, eggplant, fennel, chicories, chard and melons. You can buy our produce at a number of farmers markets on Vancouver Island and in the Lower Mainland. We are accepting new memberships in our CSA Farm Box program – Community Supported Agriculture. Receive a weekly box of produce June through October.
