Ranch Spring Irrigation, fire protection, Cattle Drive and more.
We have a 375ac off the grid fully self-sufficient cattle ranch located 40kms NW of Lillooet BC in the south chilcotin mountain range. Our Black and Red Angus cattle live a unique life in the small Yalakom Valley, being feed during the winter months from organic Alfa and Timothy grass and during the summer living deep in the mountains forest grazing on natural vegetation and drinking from nearby springs and streams to survive.
Starting in April I am are looking for 10 people, couples and/or individuals help spring irrigation set up, forest pruning to help protect our ranch against wildfires, during this time we will be taking care of 40+ cattle and later in May we have an annual cattle drive which is a super fun weekend event. Daily routines include 7:30am breakfast, feed the dogs & cattle, generally working from 8am to 1pm-ish leaving the entire afternoon to hang at the lake or go exploring.
There is lots to do during the spring, hot saunas and cool jump into the lake, hiking, exploring new areas, fires in the evening.
Please email me for more details.

Travellers will learn how off the grid ranches run and operate plus what it takes to be a cattle rancher.
Most days we start work at 8am, 10 am break and finish up at 1pm. Helping 4-5 hrs a day is normal for a crew of people but the odd time we require more hours due to living off the grid on a ranch.
We have 2 log cabins, one bus, close to the lake equipped with comfy beds, water, electricity and internet.
Please consider joining us.
We have a few log cabins and a lake for swimming, plus sauna cabin for guests to enjoy when the day is done.
During your time off there are hundreds of trails, lakes and mountains to discover in the back country around the ranch. Excellent Hiking, Mountian biking, horseback riding (we do not have horses), swimming are at our door step.
