We are in Southern BC in the Kettle Valley. We live alongside the Kettle River where we swim, kayak, canoe and play. Close to Mount Baldy Ski Resort a 30 minute drive. We have wonderful hiking and we are across from the Trans Canada Trail, our section known as the KVR. Bike, ride and explore. Our history is gold and we are now a ranching community.
We are semi retired with a hobby farm where we have naturally raised Black Angus Beef and want to get into more gardening. We try to live a healthy lifestyle with a glass of wine and a cold beer thrown in. Building a greenhouse, haying, and saving our natural forests are some of our projects. We want to fire proof our properties by pruning and doing clean-up. We are have 500 acres with hay field, lots of lawn and not enough garden. Great to explore!
We are non-vegetarian and love to cook world wide cuisine. Would love help in the kitchen, too!
