About Backyard Farm:

After close to 20 years in the high end culinary industry, Chef Chris Van Hooydonk’s love of his craft inspired him and his wife Mikkel to pursue a long anticipated dream - a farm-based intimate dining room and private cooking school. The important relationship between wine and food is a motivating factor behind the project. Located on a 2 acre hobby orchard property on the beautiful “Golden Mile” in Oliver, BC, a farmhouse turned Chef’s Table has become a dream turned reality in June of 2014. Surrounded by vineyards, old growth heritage fruit trees and garden beds, menu and culinary workshop inspiration is drawn from the seasonal bounty. If it cannot be found on the property itself, ingredients are sourced from a partnership with many other passionate and dedicated growers and producers.
