We are wrapping up our 3rd transition year and in 2020 become certified organic. There are 7 acres of apples, mostly Gala and Ambrosia, a 2 acre pasture (with sheep, chickens and ducks) and plenty of garden around house, barn and shop. We also have a permaculture orchard with mixed fruit tree planting and companion plants.
The view is brilliant looking out over the north Okanagan valley with Okanagan and Kalamalka lakes in the distance. We're beside a trail system that runs along BX creek, to a waterfall and also along Silver Star Foothills. It is 7kms into town, and about 20minutes up the hill to Sovereign Lake X-Country and Silver Star Ski Resort just beyond.

In 2020 we will have 2 positions with pay and accommodation available for farm workers from March thru October. Either a stipend or wage based on experience.
