  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five humans, one Swiss Mountain dog, chickens and a lot of lavender! Our acreage is in Kelowna in the lovely Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada. We will be getting the (small) farm ready in March for spring. There is plenty of recreation close by with hiking trails, cycling trails (incl. the Myra Canyon Trestles), horse riding, swimming/kayaking/paddle boarding in the Okanagan Lake, wine tasting or just hanging out at City park or in the summer on our local beaches (our favourite is Gyro beach).
