  • Description


    Big news : we are now operating as a gsd (German Shepard dog) rescue.

    Projects currently in the works for this summer and underway: a permanent greenhouse and the finishing of a 12x48 kennel/office As well as fencing and forest rehabilitation and the Contruction of hiking/running/mountain biking trails.

    We have a dynamic growing family farm on a mountain near Kamloops, bc. Learning as we grow, we are developing a orchard, large vegetable garden, permanent greenhouses, and working to give our animals the most natural comfortable lives possible. (horses, dogs, cats, chickens, pigs). Our family consists of 2 in house children ages 11 - 13 years of age. With many tasks at hand and teaching/learning as we go we work as a family and our workawayers become part of our family dynamics. The kids are homeschooled/public school cross due to our 13 year olds chronic illness.

    We look forward to embracing new thoughts, ideas and trading knowledge of farm, forest and life. We are a very open minded family, off grid ( with limited internet), limited cell service no landline in the middle of nowhere, completely surrounded by crown land.

    Accommodation are currently in a small trailer or tenting if you wish.

    ** We are scent free and use septic friendly soaps, shampoos etc- please also bring your own**

    ** we can not accept Workawayer’s with pets**
