Health and Food Safety
We believe that island grown products are healthier and safer than those being shipped long distances touched by many anonymous hands. We also know that under current circumstances we need to go beyond “Food Safe” protocols for handling and distributing farm food. As such, boxes will be packed using disposable gloves and masks, and all staff will be screened for health issues. Our Home Delivery and “Drive-Through” Pick-Up options and Online Payment system allow food to come to you without any human contact.

Who We Are
Foxglove Farm is a 120-acre organic farm on Salt Spring Island. The farm is one of the original homesteads on the island, surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected forest and agricultural fields, bordering Maxwell Lake.
The farm is managed by Michael Ableman and Jeanne-Marie Herman who bring a combined 65 years of full-time organic farming experience. They work with a small highly skilled crew to bring you some of the best quality island–grown farm products.
We produce strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, asparagus, melons, greens, roots, a wide range of annual Mediterranean vegetables, as well as orchards of diverse varieties of peach, plum, apple, pear, quince, persimmon, fig, chestnut, and cherry. We also manage a small flock of laying hens, pastured pigs, and extensive fields of grains, legumes, hay, and pasture.
