  • Description


    I am in the process of converting our little chicken operation into a farm to raise crickets for human consumption- OMG! Having a mountain to climb, help with physical labour/building/internet would be much appreciated.
    Any helping hand with regard to household stuff (have not cleaned our windows in years- still light coming through, ha, ha, ha,...or cooking, etc.) would be just as welcome :)

    My son lives with me full time, would also be a chore- and fun, since he is the best son in the world :-)

    Much love, peace and cheers

    There are many lakes for swimming, the West Chilcotin offers also abundant opportunities for hiking/ fishing in one of the most beautiful environments.

    Yes, we have horses- but only the wooden ones ;-)
