    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 :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a wonderful place to be, especially in the spring to fall seasons, guests often remark how much they learn about herbal medicine and organic farming when they stay, we value permaculture and sustainability

    You have to be self-motivated and work independently as we are not always around. Help needed would be a mix of garden care, animal care, land care, housework and childcare.
