Bilston Creek Farm is a hobby farm in beautiful Metchosin BC and an award-winning event venue. We grow crops, manufacture products with what we harvest from the farm, and engage the public in a premium agritourism environment including accommodation and catering. We grow lavender and distill both lavender and cedar oil using ancient methods with a copper alembic still. The property has an old heritage apple orchard which is harvested and pressed each fall. We also keep bees and harvest raw organic honey. Bilston has a small on-site store which features our hand-made small batch products such as soap, lip balm, apple cider vinegar, seasonal culinary products and much more. The farm is located along Witty's Lagoon with walking trails through a bird sanctuary and a sandy beach.
