Bird’s Eye Cove Farm

Situated on the sunny slopes of Bird’s Eye Cove of Maple Bay, beautiful Bird’s Eye Cove Farm is locally well known for unforgettable wood fired pizzas made with farm-grown ingredients. This 300 acre agrarian gem is family owned and operated by Heather, Paul, and Sara. Together they raise grass fed Scottish Highland Cattle, Berkshire pigs, chickens and occasionally sheep in a natural, loving way without the use of synthetic hormones or antibiotics.IMG_0935

Birds Eye Cove Farm is believed to be one of the oldest working farms in the region. First settled in 1860 by William Chisholm, a dedicated, community minded man and member of the Cowichan Agricultural Society, the farm has been lovingly stewarded by the Skoretz family for the past thirty years. In 2012 a traditional hand cut timber barn was erected, “the Barn”, which serves as a multipurpose space for the farm’s diverse offerings. In addition to their regular pizza nights, the family also hosts special events such as memorable weddings, group and corporate retreats, and more. This year they are expanding their market garden to provide even more tasty fresh ingredients for their delicious pizzas.

IMG_0949If you want to purchase some of this heritage farm’s fabulous locally grown foods, you can find what’s available in the on-farm Gypsy Wagon. It is well stocked with farm produce and is open from 9-5pm, 7 days a week.

A visit to Bird’s Eye Cove farm is highly recommended. Heather, Paul, and Sara are warm and gracious hosts, the scenery is spectacular, and the food is as good as it gets! Check out their upcoming events on their website: birdseyecove.com.
