Last Updated: September 11, 2019

For the fall season we are looking for folks who would like to come and stay with us to help with homestead projects such as mulching/composting the orchard, getting the garden ready for winter, stacking firewood ect. Depending on your skills and past experience you may be operating machinery (tractors, chainsaw, brush cutters, weed-wackers).

We can only accept volunteers with a car/van as we are a bit isolated and buses can be difficult to use. Volunteers will have accommodations provided in a separate home on the farm. You'll be given weekly grocery money and do all your own cooking. Please respond with your experience and dates of stay. Please note we only book 1 month in advance - thank you!!

ABOUT US
We are a family of 4 and are located in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.Our Certified Organic farm is 73 acres and we have devoted our lives to raising animals on pasture to produce the highest quality meat and milk products. The 2019 season is almost over, so at the moment weonly have a herd of beef cows and a small flock of laying hens for ourselves. We also have a milk cow for home use to make our own butter and yogurt.

We love sharing our passion for regenerative agriculture with travelers from around the world! Our goal is to provide a fun and interesting work environment where you can learn the "ins and outs" of pasture based farming on Canadian farm. Come stay with us and experience life on Canada's beautiful west coast!
