  • Descripción


    We are a young professional couple who moved away from an urban lifestyle to raise our three boys closer to the land and the family ranch. We live on Beaver Lake in Beaver Valley, British Columbia on 9 acres. We have 700 ft of lakefront right outside our front door.

    Our family values are eating homegrown organic healthy food, living symbiotically with nature, raising kids in a free range environment and providing opportunities for them to participate in food production as well as develop skills by helping in our homestead development. We moved closer to the family ranch to build relationships and have knowledge passed on to the next generation.

    We also value the benefit of raising our kids in the natural world. We spend most of our time outdoors with them playing, working, recreating and just being.
