  • Description


    My wife and I are operating a small cow calf operation along with a few horses. We are expanding and building on a continual basis. We are developing land in the Robson Valley increasing our herd. We live 10 minutes from amMt. Robson Provincial Park, and we live 1 hour from Jasper National Park. We live in a cabin with a view of a front row seat to Mica Mountain. Valemount hosts a variety of activities with some of the best mountain bike trails in western Canada. Wildlife here is abundant with deer, moose, bears, and cougars. We keep some of our cattle on a range lease on Mica Mountain, we are continually patrolling the mountain checking cattle.
