  • Description


    We have a 160 acre ranch in Beautiful British Columbia Canada where we raise horses, chickens, pigs and some cows. We also have huge beautiful gardens as we are trying to be self-sustaining ! We are an easy going family farm and love having people from other countries come work with us on the ranch and learn our culture plus take in some of our fun cultural activities. We take pride in our home by surrounding the ranch with beautiful flowers and rockery! The Salmon river runs through all the beautiful fields , which is a wonderful place to spend the hot summer afternoons. Our #1 priority is the health and well being of our animals .
