  • Description


    We now live in Lone, Butte, BC, which is part of the Cariboo Region of British Columbia (cattle country). Our farm is located on a charming 20 acre property just south of Horse Lake, and only 15 minutes from the town of 100 Mile House. We currently have 3 horses, 3 alpacas, 8 dogs and 2 cats to care for, in addition to preparing the property for a flock of sheep that will be arriving later this year.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn a lot about horses, running a dog breeding facility, and of course learning the language. There are so many outdoor activities in the Cariboo as well. It's not all about work, it's about enjoying the outdoors, and life in general.
