  • Description


    we are a family with mostly grown kids. Our son who is 16 still lives at home. 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. 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.
