Hi, I'm Emma and my husband is Rob. I'm originally from Wales Uk and started my little farm a couple of years ago. I'm slowly but surely growing and developing.
We raise sheep, Pig's, chickens, quail and rabbits. We hope to also develop into produce.
Duties will include animal care and maintainence, fencing, building and general labour. We are very small so these duties are not overly extensive daily hours may vary but will be under 5 hours a day in exchange for food and accommodation.
Although remote this is a wonderful location on a tiny island called alert bay, surrounded by ocean, mountain views and spectacular beauty and amazing wildlife such as whales, sea lions, seal, dolphins, porpoises etc. It is a unique and friendly community with rich history and cultural heritage. If you are looking for wild evenings and bustling city life then this is not the right place. If you love the outdoors, animals and nature then it's paradise.
Kayaking, whale watching, fishing, hiking on our lovely trails, are some activities that are available here. We have a lovely cultural museum, the worlds tallest totem pole, waterfront native burial ground (totems) the ecological gardens (known locally as Gator gardens)
You may also have the opportunity to learn some preservation methods such as canning, cheese making, fermenting, processing fish, processing meat.
We have private accomdation available and food will be provided.
