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.
