About Michell's Farm

 
Farming for you since 1862

Michell's Farm is a sixth generation family owned and operated farm that has been growing on the Saanich Peninusla for over 150 years. We grow over 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables as well as hay and pasture raised beef. In the fall, visit our U-Pick Pumpkin Patch! Since it was originally established, Michell's Farm has grown from a 100 acre farm to its current 400+ acres which produces over four thousand tonnes of produce annually!

At Michell's Farm Market, located at 2451 Island View Rd (right on the popular Lochside Trail), you will find seasonal produce grown right here on Michell's Farm and local farms. We also carry many other locally made products including baked goods, honey, vinegars and much more!

 
History of Michell's Farm

Michell's Farm was originally established in the 1860's by William Michell, who purchased a 100 acre farm on the Saanich Peninsula with his profits from the goldrush. The farm started out growing mainly potatoes and over the years began growing a few more varieties of vegetables and berries. In the 1980's Michell's Farm, along with other local potato farms, was well established when the federal government banned growing potatoes in Central Saanich due to the discovery of the golden nematode. The ban was quite an interruption to the local farming community, but it pushed the Michells to diversify and experiment with growing other vegetables, which has led to the wide selection of produce grown today. You will still see signs indicating you're entering quarantined area as you enter Central Saanich to this day. Michell's Farm is now 400+ acres, with an additional 100+ acres of leased land, and is still owned and operated by the Michell family.
