  • Description


    Surround Yourself with the Beautiful wilderness of the Chilcotin Mountians in an active household hobby farm. In the WInter we need to keep the furnances going the firewood split with a wood splitter of course! or by axe whichever and the snow cleared with the tractor or snowblower. There are chickens and rabbits and dogs on the farm to take care of. Farming in the summer. There are projects that need finishing as renovating the property. Any cheerful help is needed. There is a bakery and mechanic and tow shop and Rv Park mobile home park on property that are useable but none are running as a business at this time but hope to be by spring time or sooner then I'd be happy to pay once businesses can be opened. it may just be run as a communtiy of like minded. The atmosphere her is one of freedom farm life self sustaining outdoor life with beauty and wilderness all around. Happiness is our goal and self sustaining.
    This new year I have a new outdoor wood fired sauna and hot tub that need assembling so that we can use them!! I'll add some pics .

    What else ...

    I have recently bought a commerical / residential property and have been fixing cleaning it up all summer. There is so much outdoor activities to do here. I have two quads and one snowmobile and one dirtbike conversion sled. There are trails right from my yard for hiking biking sleding atv cross country skiing and more. The nimpo Lake has amazing fishing all year round (ice fishing now). Tweedsmuir park is close. There is a corner store post office and restuarant across the street. That is the extend of any public places to go unless you drive 2 hours to Bella Coola.
    I moved from Whistler and lived in a community home for 20 years so I enjoy living with groups or with another person singles couples and families are welcome. I enjoy planning events and doing things together.
    I am awake to the current situation that is taking place around the world. We live in the country and live a healthy lifestyle there is no need to wear masks on the property or in the home.
