We have space available, with the gardening season starting into full swing there will be lots to do around the farm!!

We are very experienced with hosting helpers, we have had over 40 now from this site and the other sites available.

We are a compact hobby / working farm located just west of Duncan on Vancouver Island. Our home is on the local bus route. There are many biking / hiking trails near by as well as the beautiful cowichan river.

We are currently building new gardens so use of power tools, hand tools chainsaw would be an asset.

We are a young family with children age 3 & 4.

We raise many chickens and ducks, and a goat and a couple month old milk calf currently on our farm. The primary farming we do is chickens but we have huge gardens as well and are really expanding our gardens for the 2015 season. We grow most of our own food and have beef cows located at a pasture near by. We have a large veggie garden that requires daily watering. We sell eggs and seasonal vegetables / fruits at our farm stand.

Duties might include helping with large garden, planting trees,garden building, Housework , fence building, weed eating, cleaning barns, childminding, feeding animals. We will expect anywhere from 4-6 hours a day 5 days a week or approx 25 hours per week

Accommodations will be in our modern detached cabin. We have anywhere between 2-4 helpers at a time staying with us so you will have lots of company to check out surrounding areas on your time off. The cabin is fully self sustainable, it has been a rental in the past and is fully furnished.

Meals are in the cabin with food we supply or with us in the house

We have space to take up to 3-4 helpers at a time in our cabin.

We are looking for short or long term helpers and have space available now.
