    The farm is over looking the North Thompson River and with a spectacular view of Green and Baldy Mountain. We run the farm with the help of our three sons, not to mention the four grandchildren. We are looking for helpers that have lived on their own and are self motivated.
    Please no vegetarians or Vegan's. We are a farm and also have a meat processing plant.

    Farm days are busy. Volunteers need not get up till 7:30 am for breakfast and then the day starts around 8:00 am.
    Lunch is served at noon with sometimes ten or more sitting down for a hardy meal.
    Meat from the oldest son’s meat shop and fresh veggies from the garden or root cellar. Out the door by 1:00 to finish working on any big projects.
    Tractor Work, haying, fencing, repairing machinery, gardening, cooking/baking, help with the animals...there is an endless supply of duties that keep the farm functioning.
    Coffee break around 4:00 with fresh baking and homemade treats are good way to power through the rest of the day.

    Would be great if you put in 5 days a week and took the week ends off. There are endless opportunities for outdoor activities around here. We are outdoorsy ourselves and like hiking, paddle boarding and 4x4ing. We also keep horses and are willing to share knowledge about horsemanship and western riding. See our web site for attractions in our area, including Wells Gray Park, Sun Peaks resort and many lakes as well as the city of Kamloops with cultural activities and lovely little cafes.

    We are currently looking for motivated, cheerful help to share work and play. Please no vegetarians.

    On our farm there is never lack of things to do. Depending on your skills or confidence. In the spring, there is tractor work, irrigation work, garden planting and prep work. The cows get driven up to the range in a couple of weeks.
    There are lawns to mow with the ride on mower and all kind of things need maintenance.
    If you like to cook, lunch in a good time to show off your talents.

    Was noch ...

    To the north, Wells grey park is a hour away, with too many sights to mention. Sun peeks offers skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
    Extra information:
    The hostel in Vancouver on East Hastings is not a nice area. Homeless and drug addicts live in this area. That said, it is also close to some major Vancouver attractions. Best to avoid East Hastings street when possible.
    Phones -- Be aware when purchases a phone from one of the many companies selling. That Telus is one of the only phones that works everywhere there is cell service. The other companies work in city locations best and rarely anywhere else.
    Car Insurance. If you bring your driving record from home and it's a good driving record in English, you can save money on car insurance. The car companies do not rent to ages 25 years and younger. You can purchase a car and buy insurance to travel around.
    Canada is a very large country with only ebus on major routes to get around if you have no car. The train is expensive and not practical unless this is how you want to see the country.
