Family owned and operated since 1960, Willow View Farms is located in the fertile Fraser Valley. Here we grow a variety of farm fresh fruits and vegetables that we sell directly from our country market. You can't get any fresher than that. We open mid-August for the Fall season for u-pick apples and more.
Herman and Martha Siemens (Murray's parents) purchased the farm in 1960, and so began the farming legacy. They began their life in the valley as dairy farmers, and moved on to hog farming in 1978.
Berries and apples were added in the late 80s, and the transition to fruit and vegetable farming was well under way.
Herman and Martha sadly both passed away in early 2018. Murray and Cheryl dedicated the new store to their memory.
Murray and Cheryl Siemens moved onto the family farm in 1991 and began the adventure of Farm direct sales and agritourism shortly after. Daughters Kelsey and Jordyn have grown up on the farm, working alongside mom and dad and enjoying the farming lifestyle.
Kelsey, a UBC grad, has returned to the farm in a managerial role, and it's exciting to see the Willow View legacy reach into the next generation.
Jordyn graduated with her B.A. in English Lit., and her Library Technician Diploma. She works for FVRL and helps out on the farm when her schedule allows.
Jordyn's husband, Bobby recently finished his BA in Music, and teaches at Sound of Music in downtown Abby. He also works on the farm on weekends in the Fall. Cider making is his specialty!
