    Description

    Our farm stay is located fifteen minutes from Duncan, British Columbia, nestled in the heart of the Cowichan Valley. Marshall has lived in the area for almost ten years, his passions include animal husbandry, creating you ways to sustain his property and Eco tourism.
    This is an opportunity for independent adventures to bike, hike and explore local mountains, Mount Tzouhalem, Mount Pervost.
    On the farm stay we care for pigs, rabbits, emus, and chickens. The property has a large organically grown garden which provides some the household groceries.

    The volunteer/helper will be expected to meet or exceed the needs of the farm and household, of course. Daily upkeep of the shared space and your private room.

    We are looking for volunteer/helpers to stay a minimum of three weeks to the maximum of two months.

    Animal husbandry is the main focus at our farm stay, feeding the animals twice daily and ensuring that they always have clean water. Eggs collection and the process of cleaning will be part of your work day.

    the volunteer/helper will need to provide their own food, the household has a large well equipped kitchen. we will provide a comfortable private room, and a paddle bike if needed.

    Helpers can explore the beautiful nature when time off, or playing with or lovely pigs and emus. Duncan has very nice totem poles tours, same as Lake Cowichan is a nature playground of wade boarding, kayaking, swimming, boating, SUP, or just a good hike! Nearby Chermanius is a city of murals if you're interested in art. Too much to do.
    We are accessible by bus if you don't have a car.
