We are a family-run, community-driven, biodiverse vegetable farm in Rossland, British Columbia. We are in the heart of the Kootenay's in a beautiful mountain town. Our farm grows and raises nutrient-dense vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruit, microgreens, and heritage chicken. We are a family of 5 with another child on the way (summer 2019) and the main goal of our farm is to inspire our community to love and appreciate good, healthy, locally grown food. We love to have new friends come and work with us on the farm, and are looking for folks who love farm work, and have a deep love and appreciation for growing food. Folks who come to work with us will need to also love kids, as our children are as much a part of our farm as Dan and I are.

Working with us on our farm will include all kinds of different tasks - from day to day farm maintenance (building beds, weeding, tending to crops) to helping us with harvest, processing, packaging and farmers' markets, to helping with child-minding.... there is always a lot to do!

In exchange, we offer accommodation at our house, which is about a 10 minute walk from the farm. We offer either camping outside or a bedroom. Shared kitchen and bathroom space. Our house is small, so its best if folks who come to work with us enjoy spending a lot of time us! We also offer plenty of good food, yum :)

Rossland is a small and lovely town. We are a perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts. There a ton of trails for hiking or mountain biking, and a really active community so you're always meeting new people. A great place to visit while traveling this area of BC.

We're open to stays that range from a few weeks to a month or two. We will have family visitors mid-summer who will be staying here at the house as well.

We'd love to chat / connect with you if you're headed our way!
