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.

Help in the house
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.
