Three Stream Farm
A FAMILY RUN FARM
in the Comox Valley
Three Stream Farm is nestled in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, with snow capped mountains to the west and the Georgia Strait to the east. There are three streams that run through the property, coming together as one to form Kitty Coleman Creek. Much like those three creeks coming together, three families came together to purchase this rundown piece of property back in 2015, and so Three Stream Farm was born!
Randy and Teresa Laws, along with their 2 daughters and their families all live on the property and have worked hard to create a place they are proud to call home. With everyone bringing their own set of skills, ideas and experience to the table, they are constantly evolving and improving what they produce and offer!
There is never not a project or ten on the go at any given time!
What started as a few older laying hens and a small, freshly dug garden, so they could source their own eggs and veggies, has now grown into a bustling homestead, where they are proud to be able to offer naturally grown products to customers all over Vancouver Island.
Nova is a shorthorn/highland cross beef cow and we went and picked her up and brought her home in the front seat of the truck when she was only 1 day old. Her momma had given birth and then got sick and had to be put down. Nova is being fed 3 bottles a day, and living in the barn, right next to Brie. She loves to eat and to run around like crazy.
My dairy cow dreams came true, and we picked up Brie from a farm in Yellowpoint and brought her here to live with us at the end of March! She is so awesome! She was a 4H calf, so she is calm, halter broke, and follows you around like a puppy dog when you are out there with her. She also moos very loudly when she sees you and you are not giving her your full attention. lol. She is 22 months old and ready to be bred. Once she is pregnant, it will be 9 months before she gives birth and we are able to milk her. I cant wait!!
Three Stream Farm Spice Rub
A delicious blend of all organic spices, including local Vancouver Island Sea Salt (harvested just down the road, in Black Creek!).
This spice blend is great on anything, but we especially love it rubbed on our roasting chicken or pork chops! Yum!

Chickens and Turkeys
All of our laying hens, broilers and turkeys come to the farm as day old chicks. They are raised in a barn, under heat lamps, until they are old enough to go outside. They are then raised on pasture, with fresh green grass and sunshine available to them at all times! They are supplemented with non-gmo feed and garden scraps.
Our laying hens lay large brown eggs! Don't be surprised when you crack open a double yolker!
Our roasting chickens and turkeys are super juicy and full of flavour!
Our piggies live a great life here on the farm. This year we are trying rotational grazing with our pigs, which means they will be rotated around the field, with fresh grass to root up all the time!
They are raised naturally on grass and dirt and supplemented with non gmo feed and lots of fresh veggies and apples!
Our pork is available by the whole or side twice a year (September and December). We also sell it by the cut, year round from our freezer.
Dan is the man when it comes to beekeeping around here! Our first 2 hives arrived last spring, and after a successful first year (we kept them alive through the winter!!!), we are excited to expand and be able to offer honey for sale this summer!
Our bees have no shortage of food around here....flowering elderberry trees, raspberry and blueberry bushes, a cover crop of flowering buckwheat and out of control mint plants seemed to be their favorite food of choice last year!
Our berry patch is forever expanding. Last year we were able to offer fresh picked raspberries from our patch. We expanded our blueberry and strawberry patches last year, and hope to reap those rewards this year....which we will then be able to pass on to our customers. Berries should be ready towards the end of June and into the summer.
We also make jams and simple syrups from our berries and rhubarb when they are in season.
Veggie Garden and Garlic
Our vegetable garden seems to expand each year. We haven't mass grown any one crop to sell, but instead grow a huge variety of veggies that we enjoy!
This past fall, however, we did plant a large plot of garlic, that we hope we will be able to pass on to our customers this summer!
Our first lambs were born here on the fam this Spring. They will be raised on pasture and grass fed. They will be ready for processing late next fall, so stay tuned for Three Stream Farm lamb!
