Raising mostly sheep and hogs on remote Texada Island. Lots of exploring, hiking, mountainbiking, mountaintops and beaches, with everything in between. Texada Island is the largest Gulf Island in the BC group of gulf islands. Texada is easy to get to - fly into Comox and a short cab ride gets you to the ferry, which lands in the same terminal as the second ferry. Or ferry here through the sunshine coast or through Vancouver Island. There is also an airport on Texada with flights from Vancouver, and an airport in Powell River.

I also have two broke horses that need a little refresher and are good to go for riding. March 2020 sees the farm in the middle of lambing season, so lots of babies abound.

I have a portion of an old rustic farmhouse available for stay, it's private and away from the main house. Shared kitchen and washroom at the main house.

Looking for someone who likes projects and is reliable. Longer term preferred though will consider short term (prefer 2 week minimum) depending on what's happening for projects during the dates. Projects include some building, fencing, gardens, orchard work, renovations...

***February & March 2020 sees some urgency in short projects*** April & May a farm stay is available.

I have lots of good food here from the farm and will try to get you out for some island adventures when time allows.

Iím an artist, musician, songwriter, sailor and a farmer. I think Iím a pretty decent cook and love preparing food for guests.
