Located in the beautiful 'warmland' of Cowichan Bay, Vancouver Island, our family has a small hobby farm minutes from the ocean. We free range ducks, chickens and sheep, as well as tend a large garden. Our sheep are primarily for milking for cheese production but also for meat and wool. There are always projects on the go here but our family also enjoys relaxing. Our two active young boys run our roadside egg business and help with just about everything else. Our farm is growing each year but this spring we will be working hard to get the garden irrigated and thriving as well as finish any painting or fixing needing to be done before summer.

Help in the house
This is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we are huge nature lovers. Visiting our farm would provide you with a comfortable home, nice family and beautiful animals. You could also learn with us as we strive to perfect permaculture ideals and becoming increasingly self sufficient!
currently we would like to get some help weeding in our large garden and general farm help with cleaning coops, sheep shed, etc. Also possibly some painting projects.
