a sustainable life
SOL Farm (small, organic, local) is 5 acres of beautiful land located in the fertile and warm Cowichan Valley, just 10 minutes west of Duncan. Founded in 2008 by Ramona and Stephen Schacht, SOL Farm specializes in heirloom and heritage varieties of vegetables and fruits, specifically selected and grown sustainably and organically for the best flavours.
We sell our produce at the Duncan Farmers market every Saturday starting mid April going to Halloween, and the Bowen Road market in Nanaimo every wednesday starting in July. We also sell to several Chefs including Brock Windsor of the Stone Soup Inn, Dan Hudson of Hudson's on First and Steve Pope of Farm's Gate. We don't have regular farm store hours, but you can order from us and arrange a time to drop by.
"Sol" - soil in French, sun in Spanish, and spirit inside - welcome to Sol Farm, we hope you enjoy what we grow.
