    Description

    We are a family of four living the great life of farming on our beautiful 25 acre hobby farm located in Lumby, B.C. Our farm is surrounded by nature and the beautiful Monashee mountains and lakes, providing the best landscape for outdoor activities. We have a sustainable hobby farm, we love to grow delicious vegetables for our palate and flowers that please the eyes. We share our land with our sheep, beef cows and "Bella" our Jersey cow that provides us with rich and delicious milk, horses, cows, pastured meat chickens, egg layers, cats and a dog. We also grow our own hay, so, in July we all join together in bringing in the hay that will sustain our animals through the winter months.

    We are looking for someone that loves animal husbandry, hardworking and willing to learn, physically fit and able to help on a variety of different jobs on the farm.
