  • Description


    Hello travelers, I know things are very uncertain at the moment and travel is difficult. But I am still hosting at this time so feel free to contact me as things change rapidly and keep safe everyone.

    Hello, I have a small farm 50 km north of Kamloops in the beautiful North Thompson valley. I have 8 horses and raise heritage poultry for eggs and chicks. I also have organic gardens and fruit trees that I market the produce from. There is plenty of recreation close by, fishing, hiking, horse riding and in the winter we are near one of BC's best Ski resorts, Sun Peaks. I have two dogs and two cats that work hard to keep the varmint population down on the farm and the spirits of the people up. :)

    I need help with riding and the care and maintenance of the horses, poultry and gardens and all around farm work. It would be an assets if you have some carpentry or horse riding and handling experience, if not that's ok too. I am hoping to build some barns/sheds in the summer months as I have expanded my breeding program. Preference to seasoned riders / equestrians.

    Kamloops has many events through the summer with live music in the park every evening and Sun Peaks is a year round destination for activities and of course skiing in the winter. The local countryside is full of lakes and streams to enjoy for swimming and fishing.
