We are looking for one person to become part of our family unit, living with a 6 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Sebastien is from France and Catherine is from England so our family is very international and we have traveled extensively. Because our families are in Europe, we would need some help with babysitting but also chores on the land, which includes looking after the chicken coop, collecting our organic eggs and helping with the various farm chores. There is ample room for an open minded person who is willing to appreciate good food and relaxed standard of living. We are both 42 and 44 and are retired from the business world already, having created a business called Wedderspoon, which we sold in 2014. However, Sebastien remains a director in that company and still travels to New York once every 3 months on business.
Located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island this farm project began on 15 acres and are planning to make this land more economically viable and environmentally friendly.
