    Description

    Experience Canadian coastal living on a small island living in a log house. We ethically raise animals to supply our small town with sustainable food. Animals include pigs, sheep, rabbit, goat, chicken, turkey. We also have cats, dogs and horses as pets. We are wanting to grow more of our own vegetables as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are part of a growing network of farms that choose to raise quality local products. This is very different from the current commercial farming industry that neither people or animals benefit from. Learning these skills and sharing them around the world will help to create happier healthier people and animals.
