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.
