    Description

    We welcome you to share the beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains surrounding our farm. We are a small scale pesticide free , natural method grower of cherries, strawberries, raspberries currants & sweet corn. Something is always needing weeding, picking, painting , gathering etc. as there's no end to the many tasks required to keep us in order;-when not working there are 5 national & 9 provincial parks to explore as well as the extensive # of local lakes for swimming & fishing Not to forget the longest stretch of wetlands along the Columbia River right here in the "neighborhood"!
    Greyhound runs through Golden 50 k north of the farm.
