The Dheenshaw family has been farming for over 40 years. We started with a 5-acre field in 1980 growing spinach, cauliflower, carrots, strawberries; currently we farm 87 acres located in Saanich including the 17 acres on John Road, which adjoins Sandown. Over the decades we grew and diversified into different types of berries, vegetables, squashes and garlic. Gobind Farms employs 25 to 30 workers with wages starting at $16 an hour, provides transportation vehicles and has on-site housing for 20 employees. We use our own farm machinery, including 8 tractors and a wide variety of implements, however all our well-ripened berries are picked by hand to avoid any damage from harvesting machines. Gobind Farms has its own fleet of 4 refrigerated trucks and flatbed delivery truck to supply fresh and frozen wholesale throughout Vancouver Island, and any excess to Lower Mainland and Alberta. We also operate an on-farm market for our local community in our 12,000 square feet plant on Veyaness, which has cold storage, freezer storage, sorting, drying and packaging facilities. We, the Dheenshaw family extend an invitation to visit our Gobind Farms on-farm market.
