    Beschreibung

    One of us is a carpenter and the other a semi retired biologist. Two grown children not living at home but may be home for short stays. We have 2 border collies that work on the farm so you must like dogs. This is a small family farm on 26 acres. We enjoy meeting and working with helpers from different countries and we try to make your stay work for both of us. Although we are not vegetarians or other specialty diets we have no problem hosting one. One family member is gluten free. No perfumes or scents please as one member of the family has a sensitivity.
    One family member speaks German but ability to communicate in basic English a must for the safety of the animals. We appreciate if you are able to work with us and independently if needed. Also must be a non smoker.

    Arbeit

    We are looking for help after Feb-July and then again in the fall, however, please inquire as we will consider stays outside that period. Lambs were born in February and we are currently bottle feeding some.

    Seasonally we need assistance with with fencing, firewood cutting, the garden, harrowing, feeding livestock, building and building maintenance and general farm labour. No experience necessary but must have a willing attitude and be comfortable around animals. Someone with Carpentry skills is always helpful.

    This year (2020) carpentry projects include some trees, building a foundation and carpentry pending plan approval late March to prepare for a foundation once plans are approved. We may also be doing some fencing. Starting April, getting the garden done, picking berries and weeding fields.

    We are located on a small farm 4 km north of Lumby and 30 minutes east of Vernon BC, with sheep,laying chickens, hay and sometimes meat birds. We also have some older horses and a large organic garden.

    We have lots of birds and generally very few biting flies or mosquitoes . We are also a hummingbird banding station every 2 weeks from late April until the beginning of August.

    The house is also under a bit of renovation. Experience with tools an asset but not required. Prefer to have 1-4 week stay or longer, but at certain times of the year may consider a shorter stay so please check with us if you are interested in a shorter stay.We just ask that if you commit to coming to stay at our place that you arrive and keep us posted of any changes.
