We are in the process of renovating and building our farmstead Sheep and Goat Dairy,
and looking for help with day to day chores and possibly with light duty reno work.
There are exciting times on the farm right now!
LAMBS AND KIDS ARE COMING SOON!!!!
Our Sheep and Goats will be lambing/kidding mid Feb and will continue until early April!
We have 20 Sheep and 12 Goats, and we have regularly had twins and triplet lambs and kids!
Come play with some newborn lambs and learn the day to day of a small scale startup dairy!
Room and board provided in return for your help. We are located in the beautiful Salmo Valley, with nearby hiking/mountain biking trails and ski hills.
This is a perfect opportunity to try the small town farming/homesteading lifestyle before making any big purchases.
Some things you would be expected to help with are, but not limited to.
- Assisting with lambing and kidding
-feeding Animals (Chickens/quail/sheep/goats
-cleaning nesting boxes
-helping with processing
-cleaning and sterilizing milking equipment
-building and maintaining shelters
If you like the outdoors, care about the environment and love animals and this long list of chores sounds like the experience you are looking for. You just might be the right people for our farm!
