The Farm

Based in the Cowichan Valley, Manna Farm produces a year-round, full diet of local, organic foods.
We grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruit, grain, nuts, seeds, poultry, eggs and Bigleaf maple syrup.

We nourish our community through our Full Diet, and our Half Diet, CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) program, in which members become invested in the farm as a whole, securing a piece of it as their own, and picking up their share of farm goods at the farm every week. For more information about our year-round, free choice CSA program CLICK HERE .

You can visit us at the Duncan Farmers' Market every Saturday, the Island Roots Farmers' Market Wednesdays 4-6:30pm in Beban Park, find some of our produce at the Community Farm Store, or you can join our Half Diet or Full Diet CSA membership available all year round.

The Farmer

Elia has been part of the Cowichan Valley farming community for several years working for Makaria Farm from 2012-2015 and Alderlea Farm in 2015. She graduated from UBC with a Bachelor Degree in Plant and Soil Science in May 2015. With practical experience and theoretical knowledge under her belt it was time for Elia to embark on a farming venture of her own in 2016. She could not have imagined taking on such a challenge without the unwavering support of her partner Mark and her network of revered friends and family.

Elia is passionate about building food security on Vancouver Island by growing, raising and sharing nourishing, organic, sustainable food that has been lovingly and locally produced.
