Tickets are $40 per person, $25 for children 12 and under, and include a guided historical tour of the public rooms of the c. 1855 farmhouse, an introduction to the history of this designated heritage property and the local area, a tour of the working farm and gardens, a view of the ancient stand of protected Garry Oak trees and (in season) the native camas fields on the property, concluding with a tea served (weather permitting) in the gardens or (weather being less cooperative) on the verandah, a complimentary gift bag from our farm shop as a souvenir ($25 value per person), and a chance to take in the views and ask any questions.

 

After a cup of tea and slice of cake in the gardens, there is time, for those who wish, for an independent forest walk through Butterfield Park to Brown's Wood (trail map provided, time 20-40 minutes, depending on your pace) or guests can stroll along the Central Saanich heritage walk, which runs past the farm gate, to see other designated heritage sites, including the Thomson family plot at St. Stephen's Churchyard.

Farm-appropriate shoes and clothing will make your visit more accessible and enjoyable. Please note that our COVID policy at this time is that all guests are kindly asked to wear masks (provided upon request) during the indoor portion of the tour; masks are optional outdoors.

WEDDINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS

We are able to host a small number of daytime weddings (bed-and-breakfast included for the bridal party) and other special events each year from April 1 - July 15, when our gardens are at the finest. Please inquire. We are now booking dates for 2023-2025.
