We are a diverse family farm located in Yellow Point on Vancouver Island. We have a mission of creating a well-balanced ecosystem and rich soils that produce nutrient-dense foods while treating the environment and the animals with respect. We use all organic methods in our farming practice, however we are not certified.

Currently we grow blueberries, garlic, other seasonal produce, plus we have miniature goats, sheep, pigs, and poultry. We offer Farm Tours, Goat Yoga, and Goat Walks (seasonally). We also run an air b-n-b on the property.

We are seeking a couple or a pair of good friends to come help out with day-to-day work on the farm from May to end of July. We will have many tasks to do which could include anything from planting, weeding, mulching, pruning, preparing seed beds, cleaning out animal stalls, doing routine health work on the animal, picking, harvesting, helping with goat yoga and agri-tourism, farmers markets, etc. We do a lot here! The summer is the best time on the farm with an abundance of fresh produce. No prior experience necessary. Must be able to work 25-28 hours per week and be willing to learn and be self motivated. Room and board is provided. We mostly eat food we grow ourselves or source locally. Being a busy family with young kids, you will be able/required to prepare most of your own meals, and we sometimes will eat dinner together (up to you how often). You will stay in in our super cute, private tiny house!

*March-May is fully booked*

Yellow Point is a quaint rural community in between Ladysmith and Nanimo. There are lots of beautiful hikes and beaches and scenery nearby that are great to explore on your days off. We have a couple bikes for you to use or we can arrange transportation to the nearest bus stop.
