Deacon Vale Farm is a small family run farm on Mayne Island, British Columbia. Since 1995, the farm has been owned and operated by two families — the Abbotts and the McDougalls.
Today, Don McDougall and his wife Shanti manage the day-to-day activities on the farm, in addition to being the owners of Farm Gate Store.
The farm supplies the store with organic meats, (including home made sausages), vegetables, canned goods, eggs, and mulch hay for local gardeners.
Deacon Vale is proud to be a certified organic farm with Island Organic Producers Association. We believe in nurturing the land which produces our food. Our animals are cared for in a humane way and in return provide us high quality meat and compost for the health of the soil. We maintain a “closed cycle” at our farm.
