A working farm with donkeys, horses, mules, cows, dogs, and vegetable garden.

Help is needed for various manual labour tasks (e.g., construction, fencing, roofing, cleaning, picking rocks, weeding, planting and harvesting garden) and animal husbandry work (equine training and care, feeding). We would prefer someone who has experience handling tools, but can teach the right person who is keen and willing to learn.

A small creek runs through the property and helpX’ers have space for outdoor living next to the water in a tent or trailer, with use of the main house washroom, laundry, and shower/tub. A room may also be available indoors in the main house, depending on time of year.

The surrounding area has world-class mountain views, hiking, climbing, snow boarding/skiing and many lakes and rivers nearby. We are 25 minutes from the town of Cranbrook B.C. which is the biggest town in the Kootenay region and has shopping, restaurants, theatre, and recreation.

Glen and Roberta are caring hosts who will make your work exchange enjoyable and can offer suggestions for cultural and outdoor experiences in the beautiful East Kootenay region where the farm is located.

In exchange for approximately 4 days of work per week, accommodation on the property is provided and some meals or groceries/grocery money can be supplied (full arrangements to be discussed before arriving).

Use of bikes, camping equipment, and other outdoor gear may be provided, just ask us. Rides into town happen often so a vehicle is not necessary, however having one might be helpful for getting away on weekends.

Can arrange pickup at the Cranbrook airport (YXC) for helpers arriving by plane. *** Please note: Stays of at least two weeks or longer are preferred.***

Sorry, but because of the livestock and other dogs on the property we cannot allow dogs to stay with helpXers.

We also do not allow smoking of any kind on the property... (this includes drugs and tobacco).

We would be very happy to have some help around the farm, and would be pleased to share our beautiful home with you. Please contact us using helpX. We look forward to hearing from you!
