Against the Wind Farm & Gardens

Detailed Information

Welcome to Against the Wind Farm & Gardens

Located in the beautiful Slocan Valley of British Columbia our five acre farm bursts with good food and pleasurable beauty throughout the season. Whether for sale or for our personal enjoyment, our blueberries, flowers, vegetable and ornamental gardens receive the attention necessary for growing and maintaining a healthy ecosystem.


Our commercial crops include a u-pick blueberry patch, winter squash and cutting flowers, and all are available at the farm or at local farmers’ markets. In 2018 our flowers will be available through our bouquet subscriptions (Flower CSA).


One must be comfortable with all kinds of flora and fauna to fully enjoy our ornamental gardens, and the lavender plantings located in different parts of the farm. The flowering trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials that we have planted over the years have become home and forage for numerous birds, beneficial insects, wild pollinators and our honey bees. If it was not for the later two, we would not be able to grow what we grow, and the beauty and bounty of our food and flowers would be lost.

We love what we do and are committed to our farm work, and to being the best land stewards that we can be. We hope that our efforts are as inspiring to our customers and visitors as they are a place of continual enjoyment for us. We continue to create a place that we have always wanted to find.
