    Description

    we are a family with mostly grown kids. Our son who is 16 still lives at home and our girls who are in University usually come home and help out on the farm in the summer.We live on a small acreage in Walhachin, British Columbia. We believe in growing/making our own food as much as possible and have developed our acreage accordingly with a large garden, orchard and pastures for our chickens and lambs. We share our product with neighbors and friends. Our grown kids come home often and we love having BBQs on our deck with friends and families. We are a part of a local soup kitchen where we bring our produce and help out once a week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    we are a family who has traveled the world but has now decided to settle down and live as much off the land as possible. We love to share our knowledge with others and always love to learn from the people we welcome into our home. We live in the beautiful desert of British Columbia with lots of opportunities of exploring the close by lakes and hiking trails. During the summer a few of our kids are at home helping out on the farm and they love to meet new people from all over the world.
