It's Calving season

We are a family run working cattle ranch with a commercial herd of Simmentals and a purebred herd of Charolais. We also have a small herd of horses and a pair of dogs to help work with the cattle.

Nearly everything we do is in support of one thrill: adventures in food. But rural living out here in mid-nowhere means that there are endless other things to be tasked as well: construction, gardening, maintenance of many sorts, enhancing the natural beauty around us. Chances are that if you could describe a pure-fun, physical job, there would be something here I could offer that might satisfy those urges. If you want to work hard, eat marvelous meals and have a fabulous time in the gardens, the kitchen or the workshop (or all three), come join us and get a relaxing feel of rural life.

Exchanges are possible from February 2020 onward but our season does not really get going until the end of March. Read on and email me

We are foodies far from the centres and trying to help create a culture of great food around us: for ourselves and for our friends. We are also trying to make that happen as much as is possible using local foods, neighbour's offerings, and our own produce. That... more inside
