    Description

    Enjoy helping a family operated organic farm and winery in the beautiful Similkameen Valley. Steve and Kim are your hosts and live on the same property as their son's family with 2 children. We are looking for willing, independent, hard working, enthusiastic helpers that can work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    The daily seasonal farm work include; pruning, thinning, tying, picking, packing, processing fruit and helping at farmers markets. We also operate a winery and guesthouse and the work for these would include crushing the wine, greeting and helping guests in the tasting room and guesthouse.

    Accomodations include your own space ( mobile home right on the rivers edge) where helpers can share the kitchen facilities and bathroom. The home has one bedroom with a queen, one small room with a single bed and a big room with a pull out sofa. The living room is equipped with TV, wifi, and we provide groceries for every helper to share the cooking duties and of course housecleaning duties.

    We invite you to come learn and enjoy the pleasures of agri- tourism in the breathtaking Similkameen Valley!
