Love Where You Live

JULY
2024

 

By Tara Stadnyk

The arrival of Spring on Vancouver Island brings warmth and cheer, as flowers open to the sun and we emerge from west coast winter hibernations, ready for the new season. There is no better place to experience the splendors of spring than Superior Farms, located at 7995 Superior Road in upper Lantzville. Set against the backdrop of rolling mountains and marshland, Superior Farms is a bee-friendly grower of retail and wholesale plants, a farmhouse gift shop, special events venue, and home to the Wilson family and their many lovable miniature animals.

The Wilsons and Superior Farms staff welcome you to relax amongst the flowers, explore beautiful natural surroundings, and meet over 100 new furry friends including spring babies Gemma the Donkey and Little Bruce the Miniature Calf. Along with the joys of baby animals and a very unique shopping experience, the farm is also host to concerts, events, kids camps, weddings, private parties, and agricultural workshops for all ages.

Their heated indoor Greenhouse Venue hosts up to 150 people, and is transformed by the farm’s floral & decor team into an elegant space for weddings, staff parties, festive celebrations, and the annual fall Harvest Dinner. Their charming outdoor Farmyard Venue is nestled in the heart of the farm, where guests can enjoy birthday parties and other casual gatherings with mini donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs and more fun friends all around.

If you’re a greenthumb (or aspire to be one), sign up for Superior Farms’ many popular seasonal workshops including hanging floral baskets, pumpkin succulents, winter wreaths, and more. All workshops blend hands-on crafting with expert guidance, allowing attendees to learn the captivating art of floral design. Whether you are a seasoned florist or budding enthusiast, Superior Farms’ workshops provide an enriching experience for all.

Coming soon for May Long Weekend, May 18-20, visit the farm for Bloomin’ Deal Days. With some of the best greenhouse prices of the year, floral-themed crafts for kids, food trucks, and a concert by Elise LeBlanc on Saturday at 1:00pm, Bloomin’ Deal Days is a weekend full of spring delights.

From June – August, Superior Farms hosts their annual Lawnchair Summer Concert Series, featuring 4 magical nights of music under the stars with some of Canada’s top artists. Enjoy dinner and sweets from local food trucks, snuggle with mini animals, and dance the night away at the breathtaking mainstage area surrounded by mountains and forest. All ages welcome.

Coming in July is the Kids Summer Farm Camp, with 3 brand new weekly themes being offered from July 2 – August 9. Children ages 6-13 will make friends in the great outdoors, deepen their relationships with animals and nature, and engage in exhilarating adventures like beekeeping, observing wildlife and the onsite beaver dam, and learning about sustainable practices.
