Near the ocean
You can find Whitaker Farm on Whitaker Road, right near Kitty Coleman Campground. The lovely ocean breezes give us a balmy extended growing season and the amazing sandy soil allows for sweet carrots to grow most of the year in the ground
Brian and Mariette were members of Merville Organics for four years where they learned a lot about running their farm, a market stand and a healthy box program.
A healthy community is vital to their approach and besides being advocates for a strong sustainable local food system, and living wages, Mariette serves on the board of the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market. Brian is a volunteer served on the board of the mid Island Farmers Institute.
