We have been working on getting our Guest Ranch to open next year 2020. Have a good start on it but really really could use someone with good building skills to jump on board. Are you out there?? Would so appreciate your help <3 We Thank all that have come to pitch in and help us with the Dream we have been building over the years. We still have a ways to go and will be needing help with some carpentry work and clearing land come Spring (So stick and rock pick'n is a huge help ;) So enjoyed all the wonderful friendships we have made so far and look forward to many more! :) You must have a fun and happy way about you then you will fit in just fine;) We like to surround ourselves with only positive people!, we have been very lucky with that so far! ;) We may look like a dog ranch by the looks of our profile photo but those are our family members couldn't leave them out of the picture:) We do also have a few cows horses, chickens ect haha so it really is a ranch with livestock;) Working on some little guest house buildings and projects, making neat things to add to the Ranch...so your talents would be much appreciated :) We run a 125 acer ranch and are finding now we could use a little help. If there is someone interested in the beauty and the quiteness the country lifestyle has to offer maybe our ranch maybe a place they can feel at home. We have come along ways and things are really looking great. We are very easy going and at most times try and be there for those who need help. Over time we have taken in animals that are homeless. Our daughter has a very big heart. New areas to explore with the wilderness in our back yard. Endless places to go and see! Just looking for those people that love it as much as we do :) Have a great day! And again i must say No Drugs of any kind / Non smoker/ Social drinker o.k . Thank you. Anyways to give you an idea where we are ~~~ 5 Hours North of Vancouver / 1 1/2 North of Kamloops B.C / 3 Hours South/west? of Jasper then coming threw Valmount then BlueRiver (1 hour away from our Ranch). Stop in at the River Safari in Blue River ~ Great people Great fun and lots to see! :D
Ranch Life gives many learning experience's. Very inportant to have experience already when it comes to jobs that could be dangerous to your well being. Everyday on a Ranch there can be new things to learn but most of all it is showing and teaching the hard work it takes to keep a ranch running and having healthly and loved animals. There is many things to learn we are willing to teach you what we know . Everyday is a new day on a Ranch and ya just never know what the day may bring :)
We are looking for a big animal lover- - Carpentry skills would be great,we are planning on building a barn and some sheds. Also planning on putting in a bigger garden-.We would really like to bring the ranch back to the old ways and have it up and running as a working guest ranch. We have many fun and good ideas,it would just be nice to have some help.
Could be short term or long term if things turn out good for all .We have been having workawayers since 2009 and we find it is one of the best things we have ever done.We have now had alot workawayers stay with us over the last 9 years, a few of them keep coming back and most of them have keep in touch:) It has really gave us that true big family feeling.(for our little family of 3;) and many animals on the ranch that we consider our family members too:) It is always so hard for us to say good-bye to anyone when time comes for them to leave,,but really it is just the begining as we found out:) The lifetime friendships made have been just wonderful and we hope to always keep adding more. We are so greatful for anyone that has come to help out and anyone that is wishing to come next if it works out;) The days can be long and hard and then other days can be short and relaxing.What ever the task is we love to have fun while doing it or at least have a very fun and positive attidude while doing the job, it makes it a lot more easy that way and not so much like work. We just take each day as it comes, and as we like to say we live in the moment;) Make the most of every moment and live life to the fullest:) We hope to make all those moments special ones for each and every (friend) that comes to stay with us. You may come as a workawayer but you will forsure leave as our friend:) Happy Trails Ahead to you all where ever your journey may lead you.:)
Jobs that we will need the most help with this summer is :- Haying - picking up hay bales to bring them off the feild to the barn. / Brush clearing, stick and rock picking / Helping out in the House./ Cooking at times or often if you like ;) ./ Mowing the lawn-grass./ other reg.yard work ect. If one of you more like the inside cooking/ cleaning work ect. that is fine with us. We for sure can use that kind of help too:) We will try and have you help mostly with the things you enjoy the most.
Farm jobs that would useally get done daily. Really hope to have some building done as well this summer- so your building skills would be a huge plus :) Some of these jobs you maybe working on alone.
Things to do in our area:--- Well for one you may not want to leave our ranch at all,,,,;) But if you would like to get out and do some site seeing we will be happy to show you around. We don't get off the ranch that often but we will forsure make that time for you all to see the area. Anything done off the ranch will be on your own cost.
We have a nice place to stay-20 foot camper trailor or if it feels o.k we do have a spare room.And now also a couple little cabins/witout indoor pluming-toilet ect. and still a little unfinished/still working on them.- but are cozy and private:) ...And now a beautiful Ranch house that will be a part of our Guest ranch when we are ready to be up and going :) I think you will like were ever you stay, all cozy :)
We live 20 min. away from a small town that has many outback sports to do, - Kayaking / Cannoeing / White water rafting (so much fun!)-(i think it is around $100.00 per person, but so worth it:) 3 sets of beautiful water falls (a must see!) and for some extra excitement you may get to see a bear or 2, even a Mouse.(i ment to say Moose. lol but hey! you could probably see a mouse too thats forsure! ;) These animals like to live in the back woods very close to our ranch.
Other then that we will for sure do some late night bon fires,,,and can't forget the hiden'go seek game in the dark in the barn :) Reilly and her friends love to get as many people involved in that one! But it is really so much fun. You will forsure have many memorries and photos to take away with you. And hope the family friendship feeling that we so enjoy feeling too! Take good care, don't forget to live in the moment! Enjoy every one you have;) Cheers Anita :)
