  • Description

    Description

    We are a young Christian family with two kids, looking for help on our grass fed only dairy farm. We live 10 minutes from Salmon Arm, a beautiful town with a lake and lots of outdoor activities. We grow a big garden and try to put up most of our own food for the year. We raise pigs, turkeys, chickens and sheep as side ventures, as milking 60 mixed breed dairy cows is our main venture. We butcher all our own meat and raise all our animals on organic principles. We live in a large farmhouse and have a swimming pool for the summer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here we are always learning and trying to become more self-sufficient. we are not your typical dairy farm, as we process all our own milk and sell directly to the consumer. We strive for high quality products not high quantity.

    Help

    We have a wide range of farm and household duties depending of interest and skill level. Depending on the time of year we have moving irrigation pipes out in the fields, rotating animals through different pastures, helping with tractor work, yard maintenance, seeding weeding and harvesting garden produce, building repairs and farm equipment maintenance. Daily chores are milking the cows and feeding new born calves bottles, feeding chickens and collecting eggs, feeding pigs, sheep, turkeys.

    What else ...

    We require a good work ethic and sense of humor. We are willing to train if you have no experience as long as you are willing to try. We would prefer at least a month commitment but are flexible. We also have kids and ask that guests don't smoke or drink while staying in our home (although drinking water is acceptable). We have lakes and mountains nearby which provide lots of activities. We have limited internet but lots of fresh air.
