  • Description


    We are a young family living on a hobby farm in the beautiful south west coast of British Columbia. Our farm is located on a partially forested 6.5 acres with a Glacial fed creek running through the property & 2 fresh water ponds. The property is beautiful & very private, home to countless bald eagles, owls, bob cats, bears & deer. We also have 85 chickens & 1 duck. The farm is located in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. We are 15 minuted from the ferry terminal & a quick 40 minute ferry ride in to Vancouver. The Sunshine Coast is a beautiful oasis packed with amazing outdoor activities (world famous mountain biking trails, kitesurfing, kayaking, sports fishing, hiking etc etc) & a wild rugged landscape.
    We are a clean living family who speaks English & French with a 4 & 5 year old who have endless energy & joy. If you are a positive person or couple with good vibes & a willingness to get your hands dirty, then we would love to meet you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Sunshine Coast is a special place, it's central enough that slipping into Vancouver for the day is super easy but far enough away that you have space to breathe & take in the vastness & beauty this landscape offers. My background is in wild & specialty foods, so our family cooks with & eats a lot of wild foods indigenous to our area; wild mushrooms, berries, flowers, seafoods & vegetables. We are new farm owners so we are just learning about this part of property, but for sure we believe in a healthy & sustainable local food economy.

  • Help


    We are looking for some help around our hobby farm. We have some general farm maintenance & building projects around the property along with a small amount of help with our chickens & gardening work. Experiance with building is a very big bonus & depending on your skill set could result in some paid work. Childcare experience would also be beneficial.
    We can host a couple.

  • Accommodation


    We have a newly renovated & very nice 31 ft RV for accommodation. The RV drives & is in very good shape it's a not old or derelict. It has a slide out & plenty of storage, our family of 4 spent 6 months in the RV last year touring around the USA & it was enough space for the 4 of us. Happy to send photos of the rig upon request.

    What else ...

    We are in a very central location, just a 5 minute walk to the main bus route to Sechelt or Gibsons & we are located half way in-between both towns. We are really looking for someone or a couple that is the right fit for sharing our time & space with.
