  • Description


    Situated on a 1200 acre ranch between the Rockies and the Cariboo Mountains, my husband and I often have grandkids visiting for the day or over night. We have a few animals that we care for, we make our own soap, jelly, preserves, butcher our own meat, grow our own vegetables, and wildcraft with locally sourced product from salves and creams to filling our freezer from the bounty in the woods around us. We are developing a large garden and greenhouse in our yard as well as continuing our aquaponic experimentation. We work hard and we play hard. Everyday is packed from morning till night!
