We are a farm run by romantics. For us, life is about small, everyday displays of love. Farm life is full of big dreams, romantic notions, and opportunities for random acts of kindness. Here, every moment has the potential to become part of your unique love story in a setting that values the beauty found in nature’s simplicity.

Our farm has witnessed many love stories by hosting weddings throughout the years, and we’ll continue to honor this tradition.

We invite you to add your chapter to the history of our farm. We offer a beautiful backdrop that is perfect for telling your story.

Private Retreat

Located just a short drive from Victoria and Nanaimo, the rural community of Cowichan Valley provides a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. You and your closest family and friends will have the farm all to yourselves. Arrive and settle into the on-site accommodations so you can enjoy every moment. Relax and experience the simple pleasures of farm life.

The rustic setting embodies a spirit of beauty, a feeling of calm, and an appreciation for the abundance of nature. Our lovingly restored late 1800s farmhouse and heritage buildings provide a sense of history and grandeur that will transport you to another time and place.

Our farm is one-of-a-kind and guarantees to give you and your guests the experience of a lifetime.


Our estate features a variety of ceremony spaces to suit your preferences, all set in beautiful surroundings. You can exchange vows outdoors with the sky above you and panoramic views of the valley or in our orchard, surrounded by ancient hazelnut, walnut, and chestnut trees for a more intimate setting.

If you’re drawn to indoor settings, our large timber hay barn offers a rustic and elegant atmosphere, while our farmhouse’s great hall provides a cozy space with a crackling fire. Each location is prepared to complement your special moment beautifully.


Our estate features reception areas ready to host all your celebrations. Our outdoor terraces offer a simple elegance, while our barn provides a setting sure to impress.

For a smaller, more personal gathering, our farmhouse dining room creates a cozy environment for your nearest and dearest to dine and celebrate together. The gardens offer a peaceful setting, too, with blooming flowers and rustling leaves.


Invite your closest family and friends to stay overnight on the farm. We currently offer three accommodation spaces in beautifully converted agricultural buildings. We recommend the Oceanfront Suites in nearby Cowichan Bay if you require accommodations for a large group. They provide a preferred rate to our clients and their guests. A local shuttle service can also provide transportation to and from the farm.


If you want to give your guests a farm-to-table experience, we will provide a list of caterers. Our trusted vendors are passionate about farm-to-table food and committed to sourcing locally. From farm tours and produce for your meal to custom wedding favors, we can help you weave any elements of your choosing into your special day.

We would love to work with your caterer to create a menu featuring Keating Farm products. We offer ethically and sustainably raised heritage breed pork, chicken, turkey, and lamb, as well as eggs, honey, blackberries, nuts, herbs, and cold-pressed juices from our heritage orchards.


As a working farm, we accommodate a limited number of weddings each year and strive to make each one exceptional. To inquire about availability or schedule a tour, please use the contact form below.
