  • We will be open 10 am to 5 pm. 
  • Early birds can come for a 10 am tour and enjoy brunch from the Farm’s Gate menu.
  • Or you can drop in any time until 5 pm for a delicious Farm’s Gate meal with wine purchased separately in our tasting room.
  • There will be some work on display from the Cowichan Valley Artisans, a select group of people committed to their craft, whether it be furniture making, ceramic and pottery arts, painting, glass art, cooking or wood turning and we’ll have information on hand for Doc the Barber, whose artistry takes the form of authentic hot towel straight razor shaves!  We will have a limited selection of their art on display and brochures to help you find their studios year-round.
