  • Help


    We made the decision to retire the hop farm for several reasons and are now in the process of dismantling
    the fields. We have plans to put in a series of raised garden beds and are looking
    at acquiring a few farm animals...after we build suitable accommodations for them.
    We are looking for help with gathering firewood and all that entails...also some
    help with some much neglected "honey-do"

    What else ...

    We live in the North Okanagan/Shuswap area of British Columbia...nestled in the mountains, we are surrounded on three sides by the Eagle River which offers fantastic kayaking, canoeing, or just lazy rafting...and our own white sandy beach. We are near the town of Sicamous and its great lake access, as well as Revelstoke with all its mountainous beauty!
