I, Flory Sanderson Owner of Island Hill Farm opened my farm to the public during the summer of 2013. I've always had a dream of sharing my farm and the story of how it began. I have been living at this same farm house since 1989, married, and raised 3 amazing daughters. Farming, educating and making memories with one visitor at a time. I've been around agriculture since I was 16 and have grown to love the passion and hard work required. This was a lifestyle choice. It's not for everyone but it is for me. I believe in what I do and make a difference in everyday living for myself, my Team, and visitors.
Since 2013 our farm has grown bigger than I could have ever imagined. Thanks to the support from Islanders and Tourists from all over the world who have made our farm a "must visit" destination when visiting PEI. In 2020 we encountered a global pandemic and it changed the way we did things and many businesses, myself included, felt that impact. Realizing how my farm has become a happy place for so many, I pushed forward. I continue to operate and grow this business on my own with the help of my staff. COVID19 has been life altering and a learning curve for us all, but I have learned to dance with it and make the changes needed to be sustainable.
