The Saanich Peninsula is the traditional bread basket of the Greater Victoria area. Today, the Peninsula has the greatest concentration of active farm stands in British Columbia. At a time when interest in “buy local” is growing, we have the good fortune to be able to celebrate our food and agricultural heritage with a 10-mile harvest dinner (with the exception of dairy, coffee, tea – and cranberries).
