  • Description


    Our 52 acres are located in the beautiful Nicola Valley, 20 min from Merritt B.C. Canada - one of the sunniest locations in all of Canada! We have 3 horses, 4 dogs , 19 chickens, and 4 cats. There is a wonderful year round creek that runs through the middle of the property. Our wonderful part of the world is blessed with an abundance of lakes rivers and streams.
    We have been manufacturing kitchen cabinets from our home/shop location for over 35 years. The great outdoors is our backyard so we enjoy using it for hiking, biking, walking with the dogs and for winter sports like snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
    The workaway program has brought over 50 travellers to our door and we've been fortunate to make some great friends! We've shared plenty of good times and especially have enjoyed sharing amazing food.
