Many Hands Farm

In walking up the path towards Many Hands Farm, one cannot help but feel welcomed and amazed by the activity taking place on this five acre farm.  Situated in Westholme, with a spectacular view of Mount Sicker, Many Hands Farm was established in 2010 by Kim and Curtis Robinson.

Many Hands Child's Play

Seeking to produce food that builds soil, community, and healthy bodies, the Robinson’s and their six children are working to transform their property into what could be described as a living demonstration site.  Applying their knowledge of natural buildings and permaculture design, they have developed both their growing and living spaces to serve as educational tools.

In spending a short time with the family, its quickly becomes apparent that the Robinson’s are inspired to use and create systems that are adaptable and regenerative.  In doing so, they hope to share their passion for natural building and permaculture with the public, and to demonstrate that alternatives to mainstream food production and home construction are feasible undertakings that anyone can achieve.  From hosting workshops for schools groups to making opportunities available to WOOFERS and volunteers, a key piece to this farm is experiential learning.

Now, if you’re wondering what they produce, their inventory is awe inspiring.  For retail they produce ducks, meat and laying chickens, and grow a wide array of mixed vegetables, garden starts, and perennial bushes – including a few varieties of haskap (honey berry), blueberry, gooseberry and seabuckthorn. Recent additions to the farm include a fruit orchard, whose fruit will be available in seasons to come, and, according to their farm design, plans for expansion are on the horizon!

To purchase Many Hands Farm products, stop by their farm stand on Saturdays all summer long to purchase fresh produce and garden starts.  Farm gates sales are by appointment and are made round the year, seven days a week.  You can also find Many Hands Farm on Sundays all spring, summer and fall at the South Cowichan Farmers’ Market You can also order products online:
