The produce is sold at two year-round farmers’ markets, two local home delivery businesses, and occasional wholesale customers. Over the past 3 decades, Wild Flight Farm has grown into one of the leading organic, market vegetable farms in the B.C. interior.
The farm business includes ownership of 12 high tunnels, a 2300 square foot heated seedling house, 3 cultivating tractors, 2 utility tractors with a range of implements, 3 walk-behind tillers, a 3-ton refrigerated delivery truck, irrigation pipes/hose reel, and all the smaller hand tools and equipment required for vegetable seeding, growing, washing, and packing.

The farm business leases 24 acres of irrigated land, a spacious, well-organized, 8000 sq. ft. storage & packing facility, and a brand new 800 sq. ft. 2-bedroom farmhouse (completed March 2022). The current owners, who will continue to live in the original farmhouse, are keen to offer support and mentorship to the new farmers during the first few seasons.
