Welcome to Our Farm.
Saanichton Farm is located on the Saanich Peninsula, just outside Victoria, BC. Four generations of the Rashleigh family have worked to produce corn, dairy cattle, hay, and grains on the Island. Our family has been farming in Saanichton since 1936, and on Vancouver Island since 1912.
Today Bryce and Jill Rashleigh, along with our family, produce grains including Red Lentils, Hard Red Spring Wheat, and Malting Barley. In addition to grain production, Saanichton Farm is one of the leading producers of haylage for animal feed on the south Island. We also enjoy raising seasonal turkeys, and chickens for both meat and eggs.
At Saanichton Farm, we are passionate about growing our grains for the local market. We believe in the benefits of the 100-mile diet: it makes sense to grow our own food here on Vancouver Island, rather than importing food from distant producers. Growing and buying local food creates local jobs, supports the local economy, and reduces our environmental impact. Local producers provide fresh, healthy, delicious food for us all to enjoy.
Our goal is to grow the highest-quality, healthiest food possible.
We thank you for your support of local farms, and we look forward to serving you soon.
-Bryce and Jill Rashleigh
