    Description

    Hello there. We are a family of five running a certified organic farm in the heart of the Okanagan valley in Kelowna BC. We are always expanding our garden, building sheds, fences, working with chickens, ducks, llamas, pigs and goats. We also make a lot of preserved food such as canning, fermenting and working with herbology methods.

    If you have carpentry experience that would be very useful. We have all sorts of odd jobs so if you like diversity in your experience we certainly can offer that.

    We are an English and German speaking home, always interested in learning other folk's culture and respecting all fellow beings.

    We have a couple campers for a comfortable private stay, with a kitchen, shower, washer and dryer facility close by.
    Lunch and dinner is provided and breakfast will be self made since we all get up at different times.

    There are a few families living on the farm, we are a small community, so there will always be opportunity to work alongside different people.


    Our goal is to spread our knowledge of organic farming and agriculture, and why in today's world it is vital to open consciousness on this topic. We love to learn from others as well, so please bring on the knowledge to share.

    Peace.
