We are a mixed farm. We have horses, and chickens and sometimes turkeys. We also have a cat and 2 dogs. We have a garden and hay fields as well. We try to keep things as close to nature as possible all though we are not an organic farm.
We would be looking for up to 5-6 hours of work 5 days a week in exchange for room and board. For private accommodation we have a camper. We also have a room in the house. Work would be varied and include gardening and weed pulling to fencing and haying to feeding and cleaning up after the animals. There maybe some light housecleaning or cooking also. The two horses enjoy being groomed and if you are an experienced horse person riding occasionally may be possible.
Breakfast and lunch are self serve (help yourself to whatever you would like) but we provide sit down dinners and we love to BBQ. Especially in the Summer! We will accept short or longer term stays and want you to be part of the family! We have WiFi.
We are about 4 Km to Summerland and about 20 minutes drive to Penticton. The beach is about 5 km. If you would like to tent we can set you up next to the year round creek. Come and try it out!

We are looking for helpers (especially couples or two friends). We are currently looking for helpers.

We would love someone with some construction experience or renovation experience as well. If anyone is a roofer we certainly would love to have assistance with putting a new roof on our shop.

If you think you might be interested please send us a message!

We look forward to meeting you!
