ABOUT Sea Dog Farm

We are a 5-acre farm. We grow and sell fruits, berries, herbs, vegetables, cut flowers, egg and alpaca wool. There are 2 farm stands on the property and we also sell cut flower through 4 local retailers. Additionally, we have a mico cultivation license for recreational cannabis that has been for sale throughout BC.

Most produce is grown in raised beds with drip irrigation. Although we have a tractor, most growing areas are no-till.

The small cannabis side of the farm (1/20 of an acre) is Sun & Earth certified organic and regenerative. The remainder of the farm is not certified however no herbicides, pesticides, or rodenticides are ever used on the farm and we operate regeneratively.
