    Description

    We are a family of 4 who settled in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island 18 years ago. We own a 14 acre heritage farm and live in an old Farm house and run a Bed & Breakfast and a horse riding school. We enjoy working on the farm but need an extra hand here and there to stay on top of all the work. We have been a Wwoof host since 2003 and enjoy having people around us. We need help with general maintenance, gardening and animal care. If you would like to spend some time helping us out on our dream farm please contact us and we will give you a memorable stay. Hope to see you soon, Ben, Patty, Mika and Zohra.
