I raise sheep, have 4 horses, have a large organic garden and grow garlic.I am a fiber artist and process wool, spin, weave and felt. I participate in the market on Quadra Island every Saturday (in the summer) and have a home studio.
We have about 10 sheep, two goats, four horses, chickens and an alpaca. I am looking for help on the farm,and skills for helpers vary. The many jobs on the farm include carpentry for small building projects, pasture maintenance, tending animals (cleaning pens) weeding the garden and filling the market stand, processing wool and help in household maintenance. We live close to the forest with more than 5 different beaches close by, several walking, biking, horse riding trails and many lakes for canoeing and swimming.We have a community atmosphere at our house and like good food. For accommodation I have a large bedroom in the house or a sleeping loft in the cabin. We are looking for people who like country life and nature and like to work by themselves or cooperatively in a peaceful environment.
