    We are hoping for a workaway couple to help us get our farm in order taking it into the Spring and Summer. This includes preparing the soils and buidling the beds for our vegetable gardens planning and finally planting and maintaining the gardens. There is some pruning and garden clean up in our landscape areas. We are creating a series of paths thorough the property using wood chipped by our chipper. Getting out the farm equipment up and running. Organizing the fall wood debris and doing some chipping, burning and stacking of fire wood. Fixing holes in the pasture fence and other projects that might come up. There will be weed eating and use of our chipper, small power tools and small tractor to assist with the work.

    We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the village of Mt. Lehman in the Fraser Valley. There are 8 acres in pasture, a barn, we rent our pasture to a local dairy farmer for his herd. We have two large veggie gardens, landscaped areas, an orchard and lots of big trees in a park-like setting on the Agricultural Land Reserve.

    We have a general vegetable garden and a special large squash garden that need to be prepared and planted. We have ready access to manure from our barn to add to the gardens, we grow organically. We have quite few landscaped areas on the farm to trim and weed. There is always some clean up to do after a Canadian Winter. Usually we have some tree damage where we need to do some serious pruning and chopping and thinning using a chain saw and other tools. We also put in our two large vegetable gardens in the Spring.

    Our home comes with full digital cable and high speed internet with two private apartment areas, one upstairs and one downstairs for workaways. Each has their own bathroom, TV room and bedroom. We usually start work at about 10am, break at noon for a two hour lunch break together and then work 2 hours in the afternoon. After an afternoon break we come together to make dinner and then eat and gab. After dinner you're free to do what you like, watch TV, read, walk. We have a couple of bikes on the property.

    On your days off we try to take you somewhere interesting, into town, a site, shopping or a visit with us where ever or whatever we are doing. We try to make your stay here interesting.

    We are one hour from Vancouver and 10 minutes from Abbotsford, 10 minutes from the Washington State border in the US. Mt. Baker National Park is close by as is the Fraser Canyon, Fraser River, Harrison Hot Springs, Mission and entry way to both the BC Interior or Whistler via the Duffy Lake Road loop. We are close to the North Cascades that cross both sides of the international border.

    Hi: We are again accepting workawayers if they are already in the country. Unfortunately the US/Canada border remains closed so we cannot accept US workawayers or workawayers coming from the US at this time. If there are other workawayers from Europe or Asia that are already in Canada and have completed their 14 day quarantine, we would be interested in hosting. Please get in touch.

    We are now looking for a workawayer couples or motivated individuals get the farm gardens ready for Spring planting. We will preparing beds, planning and planting the gardens. Cleaning up the property from any Winter damage. We hope to have help during this time, we will have lots of room in our home and can make some delicious meals with produce from the farm gardens.

    There is always clean up in preparation for a Canadian Winter. Usually we have some tree damage where we need to do some serious pruning and chopping and thinning. We also put in our two large vegetable gardens in the Spring. We have a general vegetable garden and a special large squash garden that need to be prepared and planted. We have ready access to manure from our barn to add to the gardens, we grow organically. We have quite few landscaped areas on the farm to trim and weed.

    We also have a one acre orchard with varieties of apples, pears, plums and cherries. The fruit is harvested starting in early Summer with the plums and in Sept/Oct the apples. We make jams with the plums and dehydrate and juice the apples. We need help processing all the apples.

    We have extensive landscape areas including 3 ponds, one that is 18' deep and 150' long. We use a system of pumps and filters to carry the water between the ponds and are in the process of developing a water fall feature area with large boulders. We need help developing this area next to the gazebo and tool shed.

    We love cooking and host lots of dinners from our fresh produce in the garden.
