    Help

    We would love your help with the day to day running of our small farm, including feeding and mucking out animals, gardening, yard maintenance, housekeeping, cooking, painting.
    Generally be willing to have a go at anything :)
    Our helpers need to be able to work alone or with others.
    There is always something happening here.
    In exchange we can offer fantastic accommodation, good food, pool (in the summer) hot tub, and great company.
    We are free to host 2 people from mid-January onwards, so get in touch, look forward to meeting you :)

    What else ...

    The Shuswap is a beautiful area and we are 5 min from the lake. There are many hiking trails. Our seasons are distinctive, summers are warm and beautiful and the lake very enjoyable, winters cold and snowy.
    Salmon Arm has many tourists during the summer months (May-Sept) and as a result provides opportunities to attend concerts, rodeos, fairs, etc.
