Farms & Markets
The K'omox First Nations people named it "the Land of Plenty."
Astride land and sea and toasted in sunshine, the Comox Valley reaps magnificent bounties. Almost 500 farms fan out over 12,000ha/30,000ac. They encompass orchards, nurseries, dairy farms, berry farms and fare from bison rib-eyes to garlic and hazelnuts. Purity of product – pure air, pure soil, organic produce – complete the pastoral picture. Step right up and resuscitate with a shot of organic carrot juice or rejuvenating wheatgrass.
Comox Valley Farm Tours
Comox farmers love to share as much as they love to eat. The Comox Valley Growers Guide, available at the Comox Valley Visitor Centre lists farms inviting visitors to tuck into local product. It also maps out three driving tours: "Bounty from the Sea and Land" to the South Comox Valley, oriented to fish and seafood; "Sights, Tastes and Tradition" for bakeries, cheeses and chocolate in the Central Comox Valley; and "Farm to Fork" for sausages, meat and poultry in the North Comox Valley. Be sure to make advance appointments for all farm visits.
