    The farm was built in 1885 and comprised of 600 acres around Sidney in North Saanich. It is now 9 acres and all the livestock is for pleasure rather than production! We have a large garden with fruit trees and vegetables. The work includes general building maintenance, gardening and animal care.
    We have a boat which we use whenever we can and love to take people out for a cruise!
    The kids are budding musicians! Guitars, drums, singing etc. so if you play so much the better.
    If you kitesurf, maybe we can fit in some trips to the beach.
