  • Description


    We are a couple living amidst ranch country. Our views are expansive and amazing and the peace we live in surpass most places we have ever visited. We have a small farm in which we grown organic vegetables and we hunt for our food within our own territories. Wildcrafting is a way of life and we are interested in indigenous foods and medicines as well as sustainability. We are mostly off the grid.

  • Help


    Help with the gardens would be much appreciated. There are other chores associated with farm life and there is always great appreciating for any help with housework. Marina is a professional glass artist and is always working on projects and would love help with artglass gifts to the community.

    We have a one bedroom suite that is located as an appendage to our home. It has a private bath and toilet and is very lovely and comfortable. We also have a large yoga studio in the back of our property. Marina is an amazing vegetarian cook and you will never miss meat when you sample her cooking.

    What else ...

    If you are interested in living on an organic farm which is next to ranching and cattle country, and if you are interested in horses, native culture, cowboy and small town life in the heart of pioneer country and in the midst of a desert, then this is the place for you. We live a rural and authentic life. We live almost off the grid. Living here is like taking a step back into the past of pioneer Canada. It is awesome.
