We love good food! That is what we strive to produce for ourselves and our customers.
Four years ago we moved to Sooke and started up our market garden. 2011 saw our new greenhouse and first foray into community supported agriculture. It also was the year of the deer. Peas, strawberries, and spinach all wiped out in a one night raid. Currently we are working on fencing our entire property so we can produce more food and keep the kids in, one side done, three to go. Red Earth Farm is small potatoes but we manage to grow enough on our 2 acres for our family and the good people at the Sooke Country Market.
We have enjoyed getting to know alot of interesting characters, and were welcomed with open arms by a very supportive farming community. It is the face to face interaction I enjoy the most and this is what has made Sooke feel like home to us. Hearing how much someone enjoyed the dinner they made with our produce is the best!
