The heritage farm house was built in the late 1930’s by the Dougan family, one of the early valley pioneers. At that time Irwin Dougan had a large poultry farm shipping eggs all over the island and to the mainland. Presently Hillcrest Farm is a small working farm with horses and chickens. Our family includes two cats and two dogs. We recognize that many people travel with their 4 legged family members and we are happy to accommodate pets and horses with advance notice.
Jane is an active competitor and coach at Dressage Shows and Three-Day Events. Jane is an Equine Canada certified Level 3 coach and trains local riders as well as traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest to coach clinics.
