We have a small mixed herd of beef cattle,and raise purebred Border Cheviot sheep
Our meat is mostly sold locally through the Comox Valley Farmers market. We grow a big vegetable patch for our own consumption and put up enough second cut hay for our own livestock and have some extra to sell. We are looking for help cleaning up around the farm and getting ready for the winter.
Our farm is located about 8 km from Courtenay on one of the main roads up the Island. We are close to Mt. Washington Alpine Resort and We have lots of space for camping and a few spare rooms that are available in our home depending on where our kids are working or traveling at the time. We have good healthy food.....most of it grown or raised here.
We are looking for short term people for a week or two, and we expect 4 hours of work a day 5 days a week in exchange for food and lodging.
We look forward to meeting new friends from all over the world.
