  • Description

    Description

    We are a young working couple who have recently bought our property and need help getting it set up properly for gardening, animals and beekeeping. We are active outdoors on the lake or hiking when not working and enjoy being social and hosting friends and family for meals and games. Our farm is located an hours walk from downtown or a 5-10 minute drive and are close to a local cidery and hiking trails. We currently have a cat and four chickens but are looking to expand our “flock” with more chickens, ducks, goats etc...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learn about permaculture gardening and farming practices with us as we implement new systems on the farm. The Okanagan has many recreational activities such as lakes, mountains, trails as well as an amazing area to visit local farms, wineries and cideries. Vernon is a great place to live and visit with beautiful scenery, local markets and events, and an amazing local food community.
