My farm is situated in the beautiful Bulkley Valley within easy access to Smithers. The Smithers area is known for its cultural diversity, mountain recreational sports and fishing. The area also hosts several multi cultural events throughout the year
The farm is operated on organic principals, and 160 acres in total with one acre set aside for the market garden and two greenhouses. I also raise meat birds, turkeys and hens.
I am in my seventh year of market gardening. In our greenhouses we grow tomatoes, herbs, peppers and greens. The garden itself produces a wide range of vegetables. I sell produce at the farm gate and local Farmers Market and look to broaden sales to restaurants and the general public.
I am a single, older woman, with lots of energy who enjoys the company of younger people. I am also on Face Book.
I offer comfortable living quarters in our log house with good wholesome food of different ethnic variety.
The farm is situated on the lower slopes of Hudson Bay Mt. and close to a myriad of trails for mountain biking, riding and hiking. These trails are easily accessed from the farm. The farm is approximately 8 km from the town of Smithers.
