    Winter/Spring stay our ranch

    Our Ranch is looking for a young energetic couple and/or single people wanting a taste of a life style off grid ranch. Calving season is here and we seeing new born calfs weekly. Located in the south Chilcotin mountains, we have 30 head of 100% natural beef cattle on 375ac.

    Bonus: If you’re a young couple looking for this type of lifestyle longterm and can’t afford to buy your own ranch then this could be an opportunity of a lifetime. Over time this could turn out to be a full time paid position, living off the land, working and/or raising a family and animals.

    Short term compensation for services include: Accommodations in a cozy cabin, food, internet and utilities.

    There is lots to do during the winter/spring, hot saunas, snowshoeing, hiking, snowmobiling, back-country and XC skiing and warm fires in the evening.

    Please email me for more details.

    Yours truly,

    Chris
