***current offer is for refinishing/maintaining beautiful wooden doors and cabinets in our farm kitchen and can be pleasantly mixed with outdoor work***
Ourfarm is an organic hazelnut farm with lots of walnut- and fruit trees as well as berries, vegetables and flowers. Currently we have three bee hives, about 50 happy chickens, a dog and two cats.
Work around the farm includes harvesting, weeding, reclaiming of overgrown areas, firewood from our own forest, fence repair and -building, cleaning and feeding of the chickens, road repair, construction and maintenance of outbuildings, mowing, the handling of any farm machine and several other big and little things as they come up and whatever the day to day business on a versatile farm looks like.
Our family has seven members, consisting of myself and my husband and five grown up children between the ages of 19 and 35 who come and go as their lives outside the farm allow.
Our ideal volunteers are willing and flexible, easy going, don't mind to get dirty and enjoy a happy farm with happy animals and people, good food, good company and interest in enjoying what Denman Island has to offer outside of our farm. We do have bicycles for you to borrow and are known to take our helpers along to any trip or outing we do, such as fishing or hiking, if they like. Your accommodation will be in the guest wing of our house with private bathroom.
As an option, our ranch in the Robson Valley in Central BC could be your next stop to work and play.
