  • Description

    Description

    We are a Micro-Dairy on the beautiful and historic Klondike River 20 kilometers outside of Dawson City! We are a family of four striving to be a sustainable , eco-friendly dairy farm in the far North. This summer we plan to build a free stall barn to house our cows in over the winter. The manure from the barn will feed a bio-gas generator that will in-turn provide heat for the creamery.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could watch and participate in sustainable timber harvest, milling logs into lumber, then constructing buildings with that lumber. You could learn how to construct a log cabin from trees here on the farm. You could participate in harvesting hay for the cows. We have helped many travelers with their English! The view from the farm is beautiful.
