We operate a small ranch situated in the Cariboo region of BC. Our extended family is nearby and family events and kids keep everyone involved.
We raise grassfed/finished beef on managed pastures using organic methods.(as yet uncertified). We also raise chickens and pigs for family use and maintain a large vegetable garden to produce healthy food for the family and some for market. Our interest in permaculture has initiated some nut tree planting and we also have made a start with blueberries and Haskap berries. Currently we are seeking helpers for later this month (May 2019) and for June. There will be some work with cattle, gardening, young pigs to care for, and the usual farm maintence like fence repairs etc.
Our lakeside log home offers comfortable rooms, laundry, internet use (for communication) and a piano. Helpers can canoe from our front yard and by June it will likely be warm enough for swimming.
Our semi wilderness setting is great for outdoor enthusiasts.
Our home/ranch is a 1 hour drive from Williams Lake. We can make arrangements to meet travellers in Williams Lake. A new bus line began operating yesterday serving passengers from Vancouver to Williams Lake.
