Farms & Markets
Unlike a century ago, Denman Island is no longer a major supplier of dairy products, livestock and fruit to BC markets.
Yet the fertile soil and long growing season here continues to encourage a wealth of small-scale growers who make the 100-mile diet a reality for those craving fresh, seasonal, and local food. Island chef Sally Rae's cookbook For the Love of Food is available at Abraxas Books in the village.
Denman has been renowned for its apples since pioneer Tom Piercy's orchard – once the largest of its kind on the west coast - first began producing fruit in about 1890. Visitors are welcome to drop by the original Piercy spread, which now operates as West Isle Farm (2830 Piercy Road). Its market is open daily from June to November.

Visit and Experience Island Grown Wines!
There is something special in the air at 40 Knots Vineyard & Estate Winery.
With the Strait of Georgia and the Comox to Powell River ferry just a stone's throw away, the site is alive with sounds of barking sea lions, singing birds, and planes from the neighbouring air force base. An 18 acre pristine vineyard and winery offer a relaxing place for visitors.
Two unique wine portfolios are on offer. The 40 Knots estate-grown wines include a sparkling, table wines, and a fortified wine that are fresh, lively, and aromatic. Two wines are presented under the Stall Speed label, crafted from Okanagan-grown fruit.
40 Knots invite you to visit, taste, and learn what makes Vancouver Island wines so special.
