    Beschreibung

    We LOVE farming. It is our life and our joy.

    We always look for workawayers who enjoy outdoor recreation, are enthusiastic, and are hard-working. Right now, we are open to people who have some construction or landscaping experience, who like doing projects, and can work well independently. We work hard and we look for hard-working workawayers. We don't give you any jobs we wouldn't do ourselves.

    We offer separate living accommodation and cooking facilities (even laundry facilities). The accommodation will be shared with farm volunteers/employees, you will have your own room. There are always interesting people to meet around here. We provide basic grocery cards, and there is beautiful farm produce almost always available.

    Right now we are looking for young international who are taking some time to travel and explore. Minimum stay is one month. You must already have a Visa. We CANNOT help you get a visa. We cannot host children (too much with dynamics with our own children to manage). We cannot host Canadians (too many poor experiences)

    We started farming 11 years ago with our little house in town in our dirt patch and with 3 chickens. We now have 5 acres, 6000 laying hens, a large greenhouse, several fields and three kids! We are also the bc/Yukon's Outstanding Young Farmers of 2019. We actually got a trophy for farming.

    We have hosted volunteers for several years and have really enjoyed having people from around the world live with us. Longer stays are a must, as people really do become part of the family! Many meals here have been shared and enjoyed.

    Keep in mind that farming is hard work. The days are long and sometimes the tasks are downright boring. Sometimes, in order to get the job done, we will require more from you. We trust that you are an adult and can speak up when you need a break. Our goal is to have enough people around to complete the work, but sometimes that doesn't happen. We do our best to moderate, but weather, plants and livestock are our bosses and must be listened to! Either way, you will leave with a great appreciation for what is behind the food on your plate.

    From our guest book

    "Thank you so much for the lovely four weeks I spent at your farm and in your family. It was a lot of fun learning all the things about planting and gardening and of course, selling the veggies on the market was one of the highlights. I wish you all the best for the future. May the farm extend and the veggies grow like Crazy!"

    A German Volunteer.

    "Thank you so much for having me. You guys accept me warm hospitality. I was really happy because you guys kept me company when I was working and give me a lot of different work. I've learnt a lot of things about farming and also you guys's life style. I had a really wonderful experience here. I'll study English more and more and I hpe to see you again!!!"

    A Japanese Volunteer.

    Oh my goodness! This question is hard to answer as you really can learn so much from being here. It all depends on what you want to learn, and how you want to learn. We are skilled farmers and good business owners. We adhere to several different governing bodies and are becoming masters in understanding rules and regulations. We speak English, and we like to do everything ourselves. We LOVE to celebrate holidays!

    Honestly, you will 'get-out' of your stay as much as you put into it. You will learn what you came here to learn.

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    We have several winter projects around the farm and the home that need completing, like cleaning up the greenhouse and propagation house, chainsawing and splitting firewood, cutting back last years crop and preparing fields for spring seed, landscaping and maintaining areas around the farm, pressure washing items and building exteriors, digging holes, cleaning, and organizing workspaces, and helping prepare for the coming season.

    Other chores could include basic cleaning, organizing, help with the kids maybe some cooking, and help with some home projects like re-doing some rooms, and some renovations work.
