We are a husband and wife team on our busy farm where we grow a lot of greens, herbs,and many vegetables, that we sell at our farm store, farmers markets, and to restaurants. We have been owners for 5 years. We follow organic and bio-dynamic growing standards. We raise pastured meat chickens from May-Sept, 8 muscovy ducks( hmmm...way more when all the babies are born), and one cat, named Maya. We have no children.
We have a growing herb and spice business. We make a lot of kimchi. We work in our commercial kitchen to produce these products. We welcome singles who could help out in the gardens,harvesting, weeding, preparing salad greens,helping with labeling the packaging, washing produce for sale, perhaps you want to help at the farmers markets. There are city buses that go by the farm aprox. 4 times per day. You can use them to go to Courtenay or Campbell River. We would like help 5 days per week/ 5-6 hours per day in exchange for room and board (we are very good cooks)We are not vegetarian so we would prefer folks with no food allergies or issues.We have a large covered deck to hang out on and an area in the basement with a smart TV, chairs, and table. There are 2 bicycles to use as well that will get you to nearby parks and beaches, grocery/liquor stores, cafe, wineries, post office, mini golf, etc. We have good wi-fi too.There is no smoking on our farm. one or two week stays are fine. Longer stays available for the right person. Using the island link bus or Tofino bus co. Is the best way to arrive if you are not driving your own vehicle.
