We are a young family who live, work, and play in the amazing Okanagan. We just took the plunge and bought a 15 acre property 15 minutes outside Armstrong, BC, with the goal of having a permaculture homestead and becoming a self sustaining as possible, eventually living off grid.
Michael runs his own business as a financial planner and accountant, and Anna is a nurse with a background in wound care nut working on starting her own neurofeedback practice. We have a 3 year old daughter who is lots of fun, and a super adorable baby boy who was born at the end of February 2021. We have a very well behaved, big lovable dog named Steinway, who is a border collie/staffie mix. He always seems a bit depressed so will happily take any love people want to give him! We also have a farm cat and chickens and plan to get pigs and possibly a cow in the spring
We love to go on hikes, lots of beach day trips, camping in the summer, biking as a family, playing tennis, wine tasting. We also love to travel as much as we can, whether that's weekend trips in our own amazing province of British Columbia, or internationally (before all this covid craziness!).
We believe in taking care of our bodies with fresh whole foods and make our own organic sourdough, kombucha, and raw whole milk yoghurt. This is the reason we have decided to build our homestead farm.
We really value living in community and sharing life with others. We love Jesus and seek to follow Him in all we do, and are really active in our local church.
We are looking for people interested in helping with the kids, house, around the property, garden and with the animals.
