Our farm is called 2 Rooster Farm now formerly the happy trout lodge. We live on a beautiful 5 acre property in Parksville, British Columbia. We live minutes from downtown and across the road from beautiful Rathtrevor beach. We are minutes from walking trails and the river. We raise rainbow trout still but have more chickens now. In the past we used to supply trout to grocery stores but the wildlife raised havoc and we lost a lot of fish to preditors. We mostly sell fish to other pond owners now. We also have a large garden area where we grow our own vegetables. We also have two large green houses one where we grow tomatoes and cucumbers and one where we are growing vegetables using aquaponics. We have layer chickens so we have fresh eggs everyday and may get some meat birds this summer. We have 7 pigs and 2 lambs as well. We have a commercial kitchen and smoker as well and Markus smokes fish and makes his own sausages, bacon, pepperoni and other pork products. We have a little farm store as well so we sell what we grow and make. We are available to host from June to September. Helpers will have their room and will be provided with 3 meals a day. They will work 6-7 hrs per day and have weekends off. We need help with the daily duties around the farm. i.e. Tending to fish, chickens & garden maintenance. I am born in Canada and Markus was born in Germany and speaks fluent German. We look forward to the new friendships
