Farm & Cidery
In December 2016 we purchased the 40 acres Janovick homestead in Columbia Valley just south of Cultus Lake. We have restored and live in the original farm house and restored the original barn.
In 2017 we partnered with Neufeld Brothers from Agassiz to graft and start 2,000 apple trees. Bell de Boskoop, Golden Russets, Dolgo, Dabinette and Kings were all selected by Richard Hallman and we now wait patiently. They were planted in November 2019 and started bearing fruit in earnest in 2021. In 2023 we had our first significant harvest of 8,500 pounds of apples.
The orchard is a lovely backdrop for wedding photography. Our cidery and store are now completed and will open in the Spring of 2024.
The Shepherd’s Hut
Fully fitted for a night or two of romance and serenity, the Shepherd’s Hut makes for a perfect wedding night hideaway. Light a fire in the fire-ring out front, and if there’s a chill in the air, cozy up beside the wood stove inside. There’s an outdoor kitchen to show off your culinary skills.
Weddings at the Farm
Chestnut Springs is a rustic wedding and event venue that is perfectly suited for couples seeking to celebrate their love outdoors. Marquee tents will keep your guests protected from sun or rain and we have a beautiful timber-frame chapel for your ceremony. Our rustic farm store features our handcrafted sheep’s cheeses and ciders and our mobile catering trucks will serve your guests delicious wood-fired pizza.
