    About:

    George and Sheri Braun had talked of having an olive grove for over a decade but never considered the possibility of their idea growing on Canadian soil until they explored the fertile Fulford Valley on Salt Spring Island.

    Sheri came to Salt Spring as a child as her mother was born there. George and Sheri visited Salt Spring Island together as teenagers and have a photo of themselves at the top of Maxwell Mountain, with what one day would be their farm, laid out in the valley below. The hope that Salt Spring Island would be fertile enough to allow an olive grove to flourish seemed like a definitely possibility and became a reality!
