My Name is Travis and my I am a fun loving energetic, 40 year old executive and farmer.
The farm that you will be coming to is a burgeoning Permaculture Food Forest/ and Vineyard near Bella Coola in the amazing Great Bear Rain forest, with a Rich First nations Culture. On the forested property there is forest trails, year round creek, with a waterfall to relax by and during certain seasons Mushrooms to pick.The Farm has Gardens, fruit trees and grapevines that are planted already, but I am excited to be adding several exciting exotic varieties to the Food forest this year.
We try to eat and grow most of our own food, live a very healthy active lifestyle, and eat Healthy and delicious organic food, with some local seafood(s) mixed in.
The farm is next to the Bella Coola River surrounded by treed mountains and Snow Capped Glaciers, there is endless opportunities for outdoor adventure of every kind (some right on the property) and people travel around the world to come view Bears and explore the Lush Coastal Rain forests and Ocean Fjiords of Bella Coola. This will be a great opportunity to learn about permaculture and growing and storing your own food, while visiting one of the most bio diverse and beautiful places on the planet.
Since we are on the rain shadow side of the mountains, the weather is fantastic right till November. You will be treated like a long time Friend and will be welcome on many of the adventures we personally partake in from Fly fishing to Hiking and many others! Welcome : )

I love to share stories about my crazy childhood growing up in Alberta,Canada and look forward to sharing cultural experiences with others from their travels and other experiences. . We hope to show guests our true pacific northwest culture and heritage on our small market farm.
We are looking for energetic, happy people to help us with Farming, Vineyard and Gardening chores on our 13 acres, 11 of which are forested and 2 we actively farm. We are looking to build a fish smoker, greenhouse, Cob oven and Sauna this year. We would like help from artistic people to further beautify the property with a medicinal garden, flower beds, pond etc. Basic Carpentry skills would definitely be a bonus. We hope to have help 4 days a week for 5 hours a day.....
The house is a 4 bedroom house, in which one of the bedrooms will be yours on a separate floor, along with its own bathroom. We will cook most meals to share with you, but we are interested in trying foods that you like and would enjoy you to cook as well....
We are fairly isolated community on the Central Coast, although we have most modern stores, pub, libarary, restaurants etc. the farm is located 22 Km from Hagensborg which is the centre of the Valley, and 44km from Bella Coola which is the main townsite. There are endless world class opportunities for any activity and if you call the ahead there is a community Bus that will pick you up and drop you off at the farm and of course, we will provide Bikes, and when we go into town, you are welcome to join us!
