  • Description

    Description

    We have a small family farm along the banks of the Peace River in the North West area of Alberta.
    We have a home garden, laying hens ,and a milk cow. Our farm is organic, there are springs, a creek and a natural forested area with an abundance of wildlife. We run our farm with holistic management principles, using ecological grass based farming practises. We raise grass-fed beef, leaf cutter bees for pollination
    Busy times are seasonal which allows for various chores and leisure activities. We share knowledge from farming to health and our knowledge of farming in the Peace Country. We look forward to hosting you on our
    organic family farm.
