Vacations on a Working Water Buffalo Dairy Farm in the Cowichan Valley!

Nestled in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, this multi-generational working water buffalo dairy farm offers a  charming Bed and Breakfast in a 19th century farmhouse.  Situated on 130 acres of forest and farmland offering comfort, history, and adventure. This tranquil setting is a naturalist paradise: walking trails alongside the meandering creek, access to the Trans Canada Trail, and wildlife and farm life at your fingertips.

Enjoy our comfortable sitting room, or relax on the veranda overlooking peaceful southern pastures and hills, indulge in a hearty full farm style breakfast of fresh home and locally grown ingredients. We will gladly accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions.

We are a no smoking farm but do have a designated area at our front gates.

Your farm is magical, your family so warm and thoughtful, the “beasts” entrancing, the dogs playful, the bed so comfy, and last but not least, delicious breakfasts. Thank you for hosting us. Congratulations on all you have achieved and we wish you the very best and every success with your plans and new family

Laurine and Michael, Surrey BC

Let us be your home away from home as you explore the Cowichan Valley!

There are always fun and interesting things to see and do in the Cowichan Valley. Why not plan your stay around one of these events?

Check out the cheese making workshops that will be held here this spring and summer!

With sorrow, Brett and Maryann are announcing that 2015 will be their final year operating Fairburn Farmstay and Guesthouse. We have made amazing new friends and valuable connections over the four years of business and we look forward to making this last year a memorable one before we leave the farm to start a new chapter in our lives.
Please check back on our Facebook page and on our website, towards the end of the year, for updates to find out what will be offered in 2016. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by our contact form or email.

**Please note that it is our Bed & Breakfast only that is finishing this year. Fairburn Farm (Fairburn Water Buffalo) will continue with the Archers, where caring for their livestock and producing delicious milk remains a focus.

Our 2015 season will run until September 27th. We look forward to a busy season of new and returning guests!
