*we do not offer payment, work exchange for room and board only*
We are a young couple with three little kids building up our cattle ranch on 550 acres about 30 min. east of Prince George. We bought our own place a few years ago which was very run down. Now, step by step we are fixing and improving things. Of course work on the ranch is endless, fences need to be fixed, cattle sorted, horses ridden, hay cut and the garden weeded, just to name a few. We have Cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, cats and dogs and no shortage of wildlife ;-). My husband is a piece officer and works full time, I am a stay at home mom, taking care of the kids and the everyday chores on the ranch.

You would be a part of the family and be involved in day to day activities with livestock and around the ranch. Get involved in animal husbandry, learn how to milk and make cheese, grow plants and vegetables and see what it takes to be self sufficient. Meet members of the community and learn the language. Throughout the summer we attend different horse events, like Gymkhana's and go to the local farmer's market. We also do quite a bit of wild foraging, starting with fiddle heads in the spring, picking berries throughout the summer or mushrooms in the fall.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
Looking for an extra set of hands. Horse experience would be welcome but is not a must. Outbuildings have to be painted, the garden weeded and harvested, fences and animals have to be checked on a regular basis, along with little things like chickens fed and eggs collected and washed..... Hubby has a lot to do on his days "off" and can always use an extra set of hand with whatever project he is doing right now.... You will mostly work along side of us, but we'd like someone who can also work independently. I do expect some common help in the house, but nothing out of the ordinary.
You will not be helping with any produce that is sold and your help is purely for our own home and with produce for our own consumption.

The Children are fluent in English and German and so am I. Hubby used to be fluent in french, understands quite a bit of German and Spanish.
You would be a part of the family. You'd stay in our guest room with a hide-a-bed (about double size). Or you could put up a tent if you's wish to ;-) (tent and sleeping bags available)
We cook a good dinner every day, all the other meals are not as fancy and you might just have to help yourself when you get hungry, there's always somethings to eat in the house 😉
We do have three little kids it would be good if you actually like children, they are good kids and a part of our everyday farm life, but they are little and can be a little bit annoying sometimes ;-)
We are in the country with no public transportation. General store where one can get pretty much everything is about a 20 min walk. We are regularly back and forth to town and you won't be left stuck on the farm. lots of hiking on the farm available, river borders the property, you can also take the bicycle and enjoy the scenery that way. We have a big lake close by. Our life is a bit crazy, so there a no real schedules, whenever you want to take the day off is probably fine by us.
