Curly Frog Farm

nut orchard, free range chickens, unique hand crafted gifts

 

Background

Curly Frog Farm is a family owned and operated agricultural initiative that supports both farmland and wetland in the beautiful Okanagan Valley flat lands.

Curly Frog Farm has several species of hardwood trees inter-planted with conifers and fruit trees.  Nut species such as black walnut, English walnut, trazels, chestnut and yellow horn are planted for their timber value as well as for biodiversity, food and wild life.  Among the nut trees are Christmas trees, mulberry and paw paw fruit trees, herbs, berries, vegetables and flowers. 

Our free range, organic chickens are thoroughly enjoyed by our customers not only for the fresh eggs but for their quirky entertainment as well.  We have both heritage and common breeds to which our roosters are very dedicated.

Our willow plantation consists of 5 species: curly, pussy, purple osier, golden and sandbar willow.  We sell cuttings and whips for various uses such as creek restoration, weaving, crafts, twig furniture and live willow structures. 

 

History Behind the Name

Curly Frog Farm is named in honour of my mother and father, Irene and Rene.  Curly is for my mom who lovingly planted the first curly willow trees on the farm and who I inherited  my grand creative spirit from.  Frog is for my dad who was jovially nick-named  froggy and who cultivated in me my industrious entrepreneurial spirit.  Additionally, the fields are named in honour of our grandmothers, ensuring that they hold a special place in our hearts. 

❤ With much love and gratitude
