Come stay in the sunny Okanagan on a 2 acre hobby farm on Coldstream Creek. We have Yurt, studio and a travel trailer for accomodations. We are surrounded by sparkling lakes and mountains with plenty of opportunity to explore nature's playground. We are looking for 1 to 2 travelers with experience in growing food, caring for animals and basic building skills. Equestrians who would like to work with horses would be bonus.
We are raising chickens for eggs,rabbits and painted desert sheep. Couple kitties and a goofball dog.
We have bicycles to use, a canoe and double kayak. Vernon is about 12 km away from our house.
