Work With Us.
At Lockwood Farms, we are committed to feeding our local community a wide range of vegetable and animal products, grown and raised using the most sustainable options available to us. But what is it to be working for a family-owned farm?
Yes, kids will be running around, Toffee the farm dog will ask for hugs, we will overwhelm you with our Todo list & guess what, you will learn how to grow food! We offer a strong learning environment with the opportunity to work with a team of farm owners/operators, employees, interns, and international volunteers. Our business has grown over 6 years with pure passion from us as owners. Our goal is to encourage people in a life-long agricultural journey and to better understand issues facing agriculture today.
Meat The Farmers
The owners! Cammy & James are like intense Superheroes driven by 1000 different passions & a strong value system. They NEVER stop. Just writing this makes me tired. Even in the toughest moments, they will always find a way to make you understand the resilience of life with a smile on their face. James is outgoing, sensitive, detail-oriented (He LOVES straight lines) & his passion for farming is contagious. Cammy is easy-going, loves growing food, is funny & awkward, and is an amazing writer. Of course, they are both outstanding parents and business owners. I give them 5 stars.
Freshly arrived in the Cowichan Valley during the summer 2020, Pascale had one goal in mind: finding mentors to learn sustainable farming. Growing up in rural Quebec, nature has always been the place where she felt inspired and truly herself. Pascale is sarcastic, loves poutine & beer, and has good people skills. You will now find her in the office covering the admin side as well as in the fields & everywhere in between!

These are opportunities for you to try-out farming without having to buy land, equipment and sink your life savings into it.
Looking for a place to learn?
Our goal is to build expectations out of responsibilities. We would like to work with you, to understand what you want to get from this internship, to help you build the skills that you need, then build out your responsibilities. That way, you can take ownership of a certain area, and the expectation of offering a product to customer is yours.
We aim to have a mutually beneficial relationship with our “exchange-workers”. We hope that during your stay, you learn some skills in agriculture, develop a deeper understanding of what it means to farm and make a positive contribution to our farm. We offer learning experiences in the day-to-day work that our farm brings
