We are a young couple with three little kids building up our cattle ranch on 550 acres about 30 min. east of Prince George. Of course work on the ranch is endless, fences need to be fixed, livestock sorted, horses trained, hay cut and the garden weeded, just to name a few. We have Cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, cats and dogs and no shortage of wildlife ;-) Throughout the summer we sell our meat at the local farmer's market.

Help in the house
You would be a part of the family and be involved in day to day activities with livestock and around the ranch. Get involved in animal husbandry, learn how to milk and make cheese, grow plants and vegetables and see what it takes to be self sufficient. Meet members of the community and learn the language.
Looking for an extra set of hands, weeding, painting, fencing, every day chores on the ranch. Horse experience would be welcome but is not a must. Outbuildings have to be painted, the garden weeded and harvested, fences and cattle have to be checked on a regular basis, along with little things like chickens fed and eggs collected and washed.... We do need someone who can work independently and doesn't need to be told all the time. I do expect some common help in the house, but nothing out of the ordinary.

You would be a part of the family. You'd stay in our guest room with a hide-a-bed (about double size). Or you could put up a tent if you's wish to ;-) (tent and sleeping bags available)
You would be a part of regular meal times with our family and of course there is always food in the fridge if you get hungry in between meals ;-)
We do have three little kids it would be good if you actually like children, they are good kids and a part of our everyday farm life, but they are little and can be a little bit annoying sometimes ;-)
We are in the country with no public transportation. General store where one can get pretty much everything is about a 20 min walk. We are regularly back and forth to town and you won't be left stuck on the farm.
