As such, this verdant valley is home to many beautiful and unique agricultural holdings including horse properties, dairy farms, a myriad of market gardens, artisanal producers, vineyards and more.
Often referred to as the “Provence” of Canada, the Cowichan Valley boasts top-quality farm produce with fresh vegetables, meats and cheeses always available at various farmers’ markets and farm gates. This magical place is fast becoming an agri-tourism destination with its collection of specialty farms, culinary excellence, warm weather and laid back lifestyle.
