My wife Bonnie and I have six children, one still living at home (14), fourteen grandchildren, three larger friendly dogs and three cats. We own a lovely small farm nestled in the Shuswap Lake area of central BC. We have a commercial vineyard for wine grapes that we tend to, plus own a lakeside RV resort nearby. We can exchange a BC Shuswap experience for outdoor labour that is varied and fun, and will allow you to meet Canadians who love the recreational pursuits surrounding us. We will share an occassional meal, and provide a stocked fridge and pantry for you to prepare meals independently. The resort may be viewed at , and I will attach a few photos of our farm.
You will be surrounded by Canadian families who are primarily Caucasian and have lived in western Canada for generations. They represent all walks of life, from blue collar energy industry workers, to accountants, lawyers, government employees, small business entrepreneurs, medical professionals. Learn how environmentally responsible Canada truly is, and not what the media portrays abroad. Meet real people who enjoy life, value family, play hard, and take people at their word. We have abundant wildlife, from coyotes to bears, ospreys, eagles, songbirds, who all speak their own version of Canadian. At the farm, you will work with our family, and given access to the resort as well for sunny afternoons at the beach.

Meals will be your responsibility outside of an occasional family dinner, and we will provide a stocked pantry and fridge with basics. We may also enjoy your culinary skills if so inclined for a shared meal together.
Farm: We are surrounded by government land, completely wild and glorious with walking trails and a beautiful creek. There is a nearby small lake for swimming, fishing and canoeing only a short drive away. We are a 15 minute drive to our resort, or 15 minutes to Salmon Arm, where all city conveniences are located.
Resort: Shuswap lake, our own private beach and marina to canoe, swim or fish. Catch a ride with an owner on their ski boat in exchange for a smile. Ride bikes, go for walks around the community, restaurants nearby, museums and wineries to visit.
