Our Team & The South Pond Family

Many special people make South Pond Farms the magical place it is. My vision could never have been realized without their dedication. It began with my daughters’ friends and my friends’ children – some of those “children” are still working here at the farm – and grew to the amazing team I have here today. I cannot express how grateful I am for everyone, past and present, who has played a part in our success. I thank them every day for their hard work and commitment to my dream.

Meet Danielle

Carlyle Apps

Our Director of Operations. Carlyle is the eldest daughter of Danielle. She oversees all ongoing operations and procedures at South Pond. She also is a beekeeper, producing the honey that we use and sell at the farm.

Grace, Olivia, and Aubrey Rose

All Danielle’s daughters are involved in their own unique ways around the farm.

Grace, studying finance and math at McGill, lends her assistance in the office in brand development and financial strategies. Olivia, playing for the Canadian Women’s rugby team in Victoria, jumps in and helps in the kitchen or with Carlyle at the bar every chance she has when she is home. Aubrey Rose is the youngest sister and, as a guest once said to her, “she is the South Pond secret weapon!” She does a little bit of everything including running deliveries and selling our farm flavours line, prepared foods, and fresh produce and flowers at near-by markets.

We're looking for people to join the South Pond family for the 2019 summer season!
