  • Description


    Organic as possible, Beautiful one acre retreat setting, 12 mature fruit trees, large garden, 2 greenhouses, meat chickens, laying hens, meat/laying ducks, rabbits, registered massage therapy business , cedar sauna, full moon family gatherings, primitive skills workshops and a free range, fun 10 yr old :)

    Our homesteading family loves to cook/prepare/ferment and offer free range meats, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free ( we are celiacs) or raw food cuisine. A fun family to share space with :) We also have a double kayak, single kayaks, fishing rods and bikes that you can borrow. We ask for 5 hours of work each day with a minimum stay of 6days.

    We are flexible with scheduling so that you have the chance to explore the area. I love to take guests to see the river,waterfalls and beaches on our down time too.

    If you like to work in nature, enjoy a quiet setting and want to connect with like minded folk we are awaiting :)
