Welcome to Hartwood North Farm, located in Armstrong, British Columbia, owned and operated by Wendy Armstrong-Taylor and MalcolmTaylor since 2003. The farm obtained Certified Organic status in the spring of 2006. It is a 67 acre mixed farm operation with vegetables, fruit, cut flowers, lavender, grain and sheep. Our crops are grown in a light, sandy soil on a south facing slope, often giving our farm the advantage of an early season and a late frost. Our certified organic fruit, vegetables and garlic crops are all sold at local markets from May until October.

Our fields of cut flowers, which bloom throughout the season, will cover over 1 acre during 2015 and will include over 50 varieties of certified organic annuals, perennials and bulbs. We enjoy making seasonal bouquets of fresh, certified organic flowers to order, and we bring a varied selection to several local Farmers’ Markets from May until October. We also sell fresh bunches to local flower shops and make regular deliveries each week. On Wednesdays and Fridays during the summer, we offer farm gate sales of fresh flower bunches. We also sell fresh bunches to local Flower shops and make regular deliveries each week.

We provide a wedding flower service including bouquets, boutonnieres/corsages and table arrangements. Our style is unique, fresh and casual, using only seasonal, certified organic flowers from our farm, or complemented with other locally grown flowers (by special request). We encourage brides-to-be to visit our farm for a consultation and to see our beautiful flowers in the field.

We have now increased our Lavender production to over 1,000 plants on 1/3 of an acre. We sell both fresh and dried bundles of certified organic Lavender at local markets and to flower shops and grocery stores. Harvest begins in early July and continues throughout the summer, as we grow several varieties of both culinary and more highly scented French Lavender.
