Pollock family celebrates more than 100 years of farming in View Royal

A Victoria-area family is being honoured for their longtime contributions to B.C. agriculture and the local community.

The Pollock family has been quietly producing agricultural products for their community for more than 100 years, and the Province is recognizing their long history with a Century Farm Award.

“The Pollock Family Farm is a story of commitment to family and community,” said Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture and Food. “Family farms are at the heart of our communities, and I want to thank the Pollock family for providing homegrown food to the Victoria area for over a century. Congratulations on your award!”

In 1921, brothers Malcolm and Neil Pollock purchased 24 acres of land near the Six Mile Pub in View Royal from the Hudson Bay Company. After buying the property, the hard work began. They cleared the land using horses, built four glass houses and started to work the land.
