  • Description

    Description

    Projects currently in the works for this summer and underway: 1-3 season permanent greenhouse and 1- 12x14 cabin, and inside climbing cave (still needs work). 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 4 in house children ages 10-19 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 12 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.
