  • Who are we?

    I'm Farmer Phil. I've been farming here for over 20 years,
    full time for 11plus years. Enough about me. Meet my helpers:

    Patti, our beloved Labrador greeter passed away on January 4th 2009.
    EbonyEbony (our new puppy) has joined our team to make everyone happy. She's sleeps a lot but is quick to please.

    Giankour is a great picker and also helps with pruning the raspberries. We have worked together for 9 or 10 seasons.

    This is Flora Wood, "The Bug Hunter". She is an Agroecologist with a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia. She owns and operates a company called Flora Crop Consulting (Integrated Pest Management)
    The goals of IPM are:
    Replace pesticides with non-toxic alternatives and good management.
    Redesign management and cultural controls, with an eye to preventing pest problems before they occur, and encouraging beneficial species.
    In 2002-03, we released over 350,000 Ladybugs to help with pests. More Ladybugs were released in 2005-06. Ladybugs eat Aphids for breakfast, lunch, and supper. This is a beautiful thing as Aphids are the vector for the "Blueberry Scorch Virus", which is fatal to blueberry plants. Flora work is very important to the continued success of Phil's Farm. She can be reached at 250-885-5995. Without good bugs, we wouldn't have such fabulous crops.

    Raj is another
    great worker,
    and has helped
    for 9 seasons.
    Ignacio Ignacio has been with us for a few years all the way from Mexico!
