  • Description


    If you want to experience a slice of heaven on earth, we might be right for you. We are a 10 acre farm in Winlaw, BC. This is the heart of the Slocan Valley! Life here is special. We raise sheep and poultry as well as a large garden. This year we are raising food as well as medical cannabis . Currently I'm working on becoming a licensed cultivator with Health Canada. Daily work will vary from day to day according to the seasons. We have a small cabin, converted school bus and camping spots to stay in. Food will be provided if you’re working 4-5 hours a day . Most times will need to do your own cooking and clean up, however we enjoy shared meals sometimes as well.
    We understand the need for balance between work and recreation, so we offer an alternative.We are asking for only 2 hours a day in exchange for accommodation and utilities only. You will need to have enough monetary funds to supply your own personal needs . We allow Helper`s to help for 2 hrs per day or two 7-hour days if they like and have 5 free days for exploring the Kootenays .Please bring appropriate clothing and foot wear as well as a good head light or flashlight .World class outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and mountain biking are all close by.

    Farm and garden help. We are always busy . In the winter things slow down a bit. That gives us a chance to enjoy the snow and get ready for 2020! Cooking skills are always appreciated. Carpentry skills are awesome. I have been slowly rebuilding a small house over the last 10 years. There’s still drywall to hang, a bathroom to tile the floor etc.
