Gather, connect and take in the wild beauty of Vancouver Island's historic Bilston Creek Farm
Our signature distillation dinners immerse your guests in a farm-to-table dining experience unlike any other. Dine in the orchard among centuries old trees, on the patio overlooking the lavender fields, or in the barn surrounded by walls of drying lavender. Built to celebrate the rugged beauty of the west coast, our timber frame barn is the perfect hideout for all weather.
Everyone will have a chance to see how we distill lavender or cedar essential oil in our Portuguese copper still as the incredible scent of freshly distilled botanicals sets the tone for the night. To cap things off, we'll give each guest a bottle of oil to take home so they can use the power of scent memory to bring them right back later on.
The highlight of every evening is a custom west coast-inspired meal from the Bilston Creek Kitchen. Our menus are designed to showcase seasonal produce from the Bilston gardens and our neighbouring farms, along with the incredible quality meats, seafood and craft products of our region. From salmon suppers to cob oven pizza parties to vegan feasts, we focus on providing the level of personalized service you'd expect from a private chef, in a setting that you'll always remember.
