We are situated in the beautiful central part of B.C. between the rockies and the Caribou mountains.
it is a small Valley called the Robson Valley Trench.
We farm Bison, a few horses and grain and very large garden to sustain us for the year. We grow as naturally as we can. Not certified organic.

Our jobs vary from year to year so it's difficult to say. The large greenhouse is always a learning curve for us. Ducks are always at different stages of development. We have a short haying season in July that is intense when it happens. The Bison visit very near the doorstep of the cabin each morning. The valley is as beautiful as the people are rich in character.
We have lots of building upkeep, painting
Trecks to the mountains is our reward to ourselves for hard work done- You're welcome to come.
Working with horses is welcomed but seen as a pleasure, not as part of the exchange agreement. And yes, riding horses is welcome also.
Log Cabins give you your own space. One has electricity. Both have wood heat & need water packed & have Outhouses.
We like to have our evening meals private.
Via Rail runs through our town - and can be a fun way of transport. Jasper is just 1 1/2 hr. away. We have beautiful views of our valley from both the rockies and Caribou ranges. The Ancient Cedar Forest, winding Fraser River, cabins in the mountains and rich blend of elk, deer, moose, bear, grizzlies, raptors, wolves, coyotes, wolverines, pikas make up a valley worth experiencing. :)
