FARMSHARE: SAANICH, BC – Little Mountain Farm

Posted by Moss Dance on November 02, 2017

Little Mountain Farm


I run Little Mountain Farm, a 1-acre non-certified organic mixed vegetable farm and I am looking for a fellow farmer to share the land with for the 2018 season. Sales are primarily through a CSA (I currently harvest 50 shares/week, though this would likely be expanded with the addition of another vegetable farmer!), as well as one farmers market.

About Little Mountain Farm

Little Mountain Farm has 1 acre currently cultivated and has been farmed for the past 4 seasons, with all infrastructure in place (irrigation, fencing etc) and pretty lovely soil! I am looking to make about 1/2 of it available to a passionate and dedicated farmer who ideally has at least 2 years of market gardening experience, is confident in their vegetable growing abilities and is open to collective marketing (particularly growing co-operatively for sale to the CSA).

About the Opportunity

I ran Little Mountain Farm solo this year (with the help of an apprentice two days/week) and for the 2018 season I am looking for the right individual to share the opportunity of farming this land with as well as the responsibility of keeping the farm and CSA running. I am happy to provide mentorship in running a market garden business, and imagine this opportunity would be ideal for someone who has worked on farms and is looking to gain some skills in farming more independently but with support before perhaps taking on a farming venture of their own.

The land share agreement would likely operate on a year to year basis, though there is potential for a longer term arrangement (and possible farm succession) for the right person. On farm housing may also be a possibility, though not guaranteed – this opportunity would work best for someone who already lives in the Victoria/Saanich peninsula area and is actively looking for land to farm.

I will also be looking for a part time apprentice or harvest help for the 2018 season, so if that is something you are interested in please feel free to get in touch.
