Located on Salt Spring Island, Mill Farm takes its name from the remnants of a small early 20th century mill that was located on the property. Today there is little evidence of logging activity, save for a waterwheel poking out from forest growth that has reclaimed all other traces of human construction. Despite its history of selective logging, Mill Farm includes one of the largest stands of old-growth forest on the Gulf Islands.

Mill Farm is currently held as a park reserve with no facilities or amenities.
