Our story

Promise Valley Farm + Creamery is a small, family-run organic dairy farm located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.

Mark & Caroline are first generation dairy farmers who have lived in the Cowichan Valley for most of their lives.


They bought what is now called Promise Valley Farm in 2002 with wild hopes & dreams of dairy farming! After 8 years of farming conventionally, things were just not making sense financially. So they, along with their two young daughters, sold their Holsteins and quota. It was a sad day!


For the next 6 years, they mixed farmed: eggs, pork, chicken & veggies. But their desire to dairy farm simply would not leave them. 


After reading numerous books and watching documentaries on the importance of health, food, and organic farming, a new vision was born for Promise Valley Farm.

Mark & Caroline imported a rare, heritage breed of cow called Guernsey that carry the A2A2 beta-casein protein. They also switched the farm to organic management. After 36 months of transition, they purchased a small amount of quota and built a dairy plant. 


Promise Valley Farm & Creamery was born!
