We are a small, dynamic family of 3 that farm 160 beautiful acres in the Robson Valley. My children Josh (12) and Rachael (10) are happy farm children that love to ride their horses and quads alike. Our place is chemical free; we raise some beef, chickens, horses and hay; grow a large vegetable garden, and are constantly adding on and improving the property.
Last year (2011) we built a big hay barn which still needs some carpentry work in order to be finished (siding and especially doors to keep the wildlife away from the hay). There is also lots of fence work on the agenda for 2012 and we would love some strong helpers with experience in operating machinery.
We currently have seven horses in all stages of training that need to be worked (outside, fenced riding ring and round pen).

We have already found some wonderful help with the children, gardens and horses and are at this point in time only looking for building help. Materials are in place.
