In 2005 we began our development of our certified organic farm on Mayne Island. We started with the planting of two of our three apple orchards. Because these two orchards are on a south facing slope, we selected semi-dwarf varieties of trees for ease of picking the apples. The following year, we planted our third orchard. We presently have a total of almost 300 apple trees in many varieties. That same year, we planted 200 currant bushes and started our garlic beds. We started our vegetable gardens in 2007. In 2009, we expanded the vegetable gardens with a Greenhouse. Each year, we continue to add new products and change others in an effort to better develop our farm. We also continue our dedication to organic farming and good sustainable growing practices.
