Welcome to Sweet rock farm seeds! open-pollinated, heirloom, and unique vegetable seeds. all grown on Gabriola Island. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, Fast Shipping.

We’re a small-scale, farm-based seed company, located on Gabriola Island, BC.

We focus on growing top-quality seeds, which we sell at Seedy Saturdays in our region, in garden stores, and online. Our seed can also be found at the BC Ecoseed Coop, Wild Rose Garden Centre, and at Salt Spring Seeds. All of the seed that we sell is grown by us on our farm, or grown by a farmer on Gabriola and will be listed as such on our website. Some seed companies buy their seed in bulk from large corporate seed operations and resell it. We don’t. As well, none of our seed is treated, GMO, or patented. They are open-pollinated, and you are welcome to save the seed and grow it out on your own, should you choose.

We sell fruits and vegetables at our local farmer’s market and at our roadside stand, and we sell lamb, wool, and eggs. Currently, the animal contingent on the farm is ten sheep, twenty or so hens, and two horses. Having animals is more work in some ways, but it helps us maintain the fertility required to run our farm without having to import a lot of compost or fertilizer.

Our Home

Love
In 1956 a young family settled, a new life far from the farm in Ontario, a new beginning on a stunning Island. A house was raised, fruit trees planted and gardens cultivated. A farm was built and a family flourished, nourished from the fertile land and the towering forest.

Love
The years have passed. Love has sown the daily seeds and this enchanted land blossoms in such subtle beauty. Each day, each week, each month, the forest and garden burst with such unique changes. Eye candy!

Love
July 2009 was the change, family renovating the homestead. The foundations flourished and from them grew WURHERE B&B. Six years in the planning, two years of quality building and a new life for this family land.

Love
Share the moments, share the days, share the love! Join us to enjoy a unique Bed and Breakfast on this enchanted acreage.

Off season adventures at WurHere B&B

The off season is a unique time to visit WurHere Bed and Breakfast. The weather can be so beautiful, so exciting. Yes, there is rain and wind and nature can show its extreme beauty. It is this wildness that bears such excitement. To watch the trees dancing in the wind, the sensational sounds of the wind rushing through the forest or roaring on the ocean and shore is an experience that is so intriguing and rewarding.

Thus the fall, winter and early spring are filled with such wonderful adventures which can be enjoyed by the many walking trails and the privacy of your private cabin and covered deck. This is a private time to share adventurous moments with your partner. These are those self moments when you can be alone and away from the hurried place of life.

The days may be shorter but the clarity of the winter ocean and the openness of the off season forests invite exploration. Dress warm and wear hiking foot wear. The experiences on Gabriola are so unique. The weather can be mild and gentle or wild and exotic. WurHere B&B is located in a mature forest with the ocean and marinas just steps away. Tofino Air can deliver you to Silva Bay which is just a short walk away and we can pick you up or cross on the Gabriola ferry and we can pick you up at the ferry dock.

There are many activities to enjoy in the off season. There are the social events with plays and musical performances as well as the boating, kayaking, fishing, and prawning.

Live the challenge, experience the wonderful difference an off season romantic adventure offers, while enjoying the luxury you deserve.
