After farming on the Saanich Peninsula for many years, Mike, Joan and Olivia Fleming established Saanichton Christmas Tree & Ostrich Farm in 1981.

We grow 15 varieties of Christmas Trees on our six-acre farm, and have a "Choose and Cut" operation.

We also have 3 pens with 13 adult breeding ostriches. Ostrich eggs are collected and incubated on the farm.

The farm also produces a wide array of fruit and vegetables, flowers and culinary herbs. We practice organic agriculture to the best of our abilities.

 

   

Saanichton Christmas Tree and Ostrich Farm is an active member of the agricultural community. Joan and Mike Fleming are members of the Southern Vancouver Island Direct Farm Marketing Association, Island Farmers' Alliance, North and South Saanich Agricultural Society, All photography by Martin Hemsley B.C. Restaurant Association, Tourism B.C. and the Southwest B.C. Christmas Tree Association.

Thousands of people come through our gates every year, and we meet many others at local farmers' markets. From kindergarten kids to seniors, plain folks to international scientists, all our customers rave about this unique educational farm experience.
