Thanks for dropping by to learn about us.
For 3 years we were operating a certified organic market garden and flower farm in Saanich near Victoria BC. In 2022, we finally landed our dream of owning our own property near the ocean, which meant hitting pause on Makoha Farm and moving over an hour away. At pretty much the exact same time, we found out we would be having our second baby, meaning 2 kids under 2 years of age, and decided we would focus on growing our family for the time being.
We moved to an acreage on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island, in the extremely small rural community of Shirley. Our whole family volunteers Sundays in summer at the Shirley Sunday Market and we are more focused on immersing ourselves and building up our local community, as opposed to growing for profit (ok, we never really were able to grow for profit).
What are we up to in 2023? Calum is currently on parental leave while Amy runs multiple businesses. Amy has been a professional photographer for 15 years and after working as a social media and marketing manager for a couple of years, she decided to open her own freelance social media management business as she completed her short maternity leave. If you're interested in checking out either of these businesses, please visit:

Makoha Farm is owned and operated by Amy & Calum. We began our farming journey in 2019 on 0.6 acres of leased land on Cordova Bay Ridge in Victoria BC. At Makoha, we want our love of good food to come across in what we grow: providing tasty, healthy, and top quality produce. It is important to us that while we do this, we are also looking after the earth and our community. We grow a diversity of vegetable crops and have quickly fallen in love with growing flowers for cut arrangements - and of course the bees!
