The story of Bubbees Farm began in the spring of 2005 when Jenny attended a party in Kyle’s shop and “accidentally” left her jacket behind, thereby requiring that the two of them get in touch afterwards so that she could retrieve it. This skillful use of the classic “leave behind” maneuver soon led to a romantic date at the annual Pemberton 4x4 Rally, which subsequently led to a glass of wine back at Kyle’s enchanting motorhome. A whirlwind romance quickly ensued.
Inspired by the potential of Kyle’s 10-acre property, Jenny immediately took over his garden and began transforming the space from a stock-car graveyard, littered with abandoned auto parts, into a horticultural paradise, rich with vibrant flowers and homegrown vegetables. Realizing that he had a true dream woman on his hands, Kyle proposed, and in 2007 they were married.
Not long afterwards, sparked by a mutual desire to produce affordable, nutritious food, and utilize the full agricultural capacity of their land, Kyle and Jenny made the (daunting) decision to begin formally engaging in the practice of farming. Knowing that they would eventually need to employ a cheap labour force in order to help their dreams succeed, they quickly produced two strong boys – Finlay (2008) and Tavish (2011).
Several years and countless lessons later, Bubbees Farm is a reality, producing a variety of exceptionally delicious food products that are renowned throughout the Pemberton Valley and beyond.
