Farm Products

Our production of fruit and vegetables, eggs, meat and farm products mainly support the vitality of those living at BlueJay Lake Farm, though we do offer some products for sale. The local Cortes Natural Food Coop in Manson’s Landing stocks our eggs, and seasonally apples, meat, and our excess vegetables.

Please contact us for more information, availability, prices and ordering.

Forest Products

We are pleased to announce the availability of lumber from our own sustainably managed forest as well as other Cortes-harvested lumber. Our vision is to supply locally grown and milled products at competitive prices while maintaining, as naturally as possible, a mixed variety and age of trees within a healthy ecosystem.

We can supply locally harvested and milled wood for your entire house: framing, decks, siding and finishing. All of our lumber is accurately milled on our dimensional sawmill or band saw. We can mill lengths up to 50’ and widths to your specifications. We may be available to mill logs that you supply, depending on our schedule.

Hemlock – for framing and finishing, economical lumber at prices comparable to town.
Fir – best quality framing wood.
Clear Fir – top quality finishing wood for trim, flooring, stairs, doors.
Alder – an economical hardwood for kitchens, floors, etc.
Cedar - siding, decking, interior paneling.
Salvage/Character Wood – rustic finishing wood at a lower cost.
Sawdust, Slabs, Firewood – occasionally available.
Garden Stakes, Lawn Edging – off-cuts for landscaping and gardening.

Off-cuts and scrap from the sawmill are periodically available for gleaning if you contact us to make prior arrangements.


Mulch hay is available at the end of August.

Please contact us for more information, availability, prices and ordering.


We have a flock of free-ranging organically raised laying hens. The birds are not caged and spend daylight hours outside grazing the barn yard. Their diet also includes non-GMO organic feed, which includes the minerals they need for healthy egg production. The eggs are rich and vibrant, a testament to the health and happiness of our birds as well as the pride we take in maintaining the best animal care practices.

Our eggs are available at the Cortes Natural Food Co-op.


Each year we raise a small number of grass-fed beef cattle for our own consumption and to sell. Our cattle range our fields in the summer, eating the native grasses. They are raised to organic standards with the exception of local non-organic Vancouver Island hay which they consume only during their first winter. This is when the fields are unavailable for grazing and they need high quality feed. After this the beef’s diet is strictly from grazing on our organic pastures, sometimes feasting on the corn stalks and other goodies from the garden. They are not fed any grain.

In the fall when the weather turns cold, we take the beef to Gunter Bros Meat Co Ltd in the Comox Valley for slaughter and processing. It is sold by the whole, half, or quarter, and cut to your specifications. BlueJay Lake Farm is also a licensed slaughter facility. We can slaughter an animal for you on the farm if you (or a group of friends) want to cut and wrap your own beef. Smaller quantities of beef are also available at the Cortes Natural Food Co-op.
