  • Description


    We have a small homestead forest farm on 40 acres of beautiful, pristine mountainside in southern British Columbia. We grown our own food, drink cold creek water and generate our own electricity (micro-hydro) from the creek. There are many opportunities to learn about building, beekeeping, organic gardening, cooking wonderful natural foods and living off the land on our farm.
