  • Description


    Small cattle ranch 640 acres owned and 3700 acres crown grazing lease. Primarily a cow-calf operation. Also a large non commercial garden and experimental northern orchard with black currant bushes. Some horses, drafts and quarterhorses; poultry, dogs and a cat. As you can imagine, a lot of work all year around! So support is always welcomed!

    South Peace River area of northeastern BC, foothills of the northern Rockies. Closest town Dawson Creek 26 miles. We would welcome you for several weeks to make the trip north worth while. We are actively looking for a person or persons for the upcoming year. Would be interested in talking to anyone with horse experience.

    We are no longer certified organic, but are registered under BC Environmental Farm Plan.

    No smoking or drugs on the property!!!!

    If you are interested in learning about permaculture principles, experience remote farm life (with all the up and down's) and want to be part of our regenerative farm operation, we are more than happy to host you.
