Bulkley Canyon Ranch is bordered to the north by the powerful Bulkley River, part of the Skeena watershed, and surrounded by three mountain ranges - Rocher de Boule, North Babines, and the Hazelton Ranges.
Situated in the Coastal-Interior forest zone, birch, cedar, spruce, pine, and poplar make up most of the tree species here. Located only 3 hrs from the coast and in a unique micro-climate, we have a surprisingly mild climate as far as northern BC goes, with a hardiness zone of between 4 and 5.
Hops and our other plantings benefit from the wonderful sandy loam soil in the lower field and favourable growing conditions from April to September. The average day length is 18 hours, average precipitation is 480 mm, and the average temperature is reported to be 13 degrees but we’ve had many days May through September that are closer to 30.
As an off-grid farm, most of our power is supplied by a custom solar power system. Our drinking and irrigation water comes from two wells and captured rainwater. Our sheep and llamas are free-range on 15 of the total 50 acres available. We take great care to be good stewards of this land by farming organically and hosting events that strive to be zero waste. Come visit and you will understand what makes this place so very special.
