We are your hosts, Willie and Lori.

We are currently taking reservations for: January and February. We will be harvesting cashmere in January and goats will be having babies in February. Pruning blueberry bushes may also be happening as weather permits. Two friends or a couple is ideal.

If you request to come to our farm and decide to go elsewhere, please be considerate and let us know as soon as possible. We get many requests,but have limited space. We don't believe in double booking. But if you don't let us know that you won't be here, and we think you are, then we are without any help.

About us: We started our farm in 2006. We have a small farm with a variety of operations going on, including cashmere goats, u-pick blueberries, small greenhouse, home garden veggies. Animals on farm include goats, llamas, dogs, cats, and chickens. Since we have so many animals already here, and for bio-security reasons, we will not be accepting additional travelling pets. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We live in the beautiful Fraser Valley. Our area is rural farms, yet close, 10-15 minutes by car or 45 minutes by bicycle (no local bus service) to shopping and amenities. Surrounding area features mountains, lakes, hiking trails, fishing, camping, skiing and much more. We are about 1 hour from Vancouver, BC for great shopping, cultural activities, ocean activities and more. Having your own vehicle is a bonus, as many places of interest are only accessible by car.

Through the year we would like help with variety of farm tasks including seasonal blueberry picking, goat care, weeding, pruning, various landscape projects or whatever happens to be needed at the time. You must be reliable, a self starter and able to work independently or as a team. Sharing cooking or cleaning is also appreciated. About 30 hours of work per week. Flexible arrangements can be made. We don't usually schedule work for Sundays.

Although we lead a quiet life, we enjoy getting to know people of different cultures and parts of the world. If you want to join us, we will include you in our family activities, and hope you have a good time.

Accommodations are l furnished bedrooms in house of owner (sleeps max 3). One bathroom is available for guest. Laundry is shared with hosts.
Free wifi available. Minimum stay is one week at a time. Most stays are 10 days to 14 days. More can be arranged if work needs are there and mutually acceptable. This may be determined after being with us for a few days. Three meals included. If you require special food items, please bring them. We are not vegetarian and meat will be served, including meat and eggs from our animals. We are do not serve vegan or vegetarian diets.

We require volunteers to have their own health and accident insurance. We will not accept any drugs or illegal activity. Non-smokers only.

Hard work, getting dirty and the unfamiliar are all part of your experience here. Persons with construction skills and familiarity with power tools are an asset.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
