Wineries, Cideries, and Farms
Duck Creek Farm (Venue) – Salt Spring Island
Capacity: 150 picnic style, 80 seated and cocktail combined
An organic family farm, featuring a “beautiful farm house, outdoor bath, apple orchard, camping ground and swimming pond.” They rent out their renovated school bus and traditional tipi on Airbnb.
From the owner: “Last summer we had two epic weddings on the land, one was barefoot with flower mandalas, hay bales, maypoles and dream catchers; the other had white cocktail tables, lavender and drift wood center pieces, and a dance floor.
We welcome like minded people to share in the love and wonder of the magical farmland space for their unique union.”
The resort features fourteen modern log cabins and two cedar chalets.
