Work on the farm will include hand weeding, harvesting bed prep, planting, green house building. We are establishing this new to us farm and plan to be putting in fruit trees, grape vines and nut trees. Types of work will depend on length of stay.
We require 4 days 4hr/day. Work starts early mornings and is usually done by noon. Work involves physical labour and working on hands and knees, in the hot sun. We would prefer a longer stay and would ideally have someone willing to stay the whole season. We are willing to pay a wage to those eligible to work in Canada. Please contact us for details.

Accomodation is a self contained RV. Sleeps about 5 people. Tenting spots are also avaialble. Families are welcome. Power and WiFi are available. We will share dinners and lunch, which is mostly food from our farm. Breakfast will be selfserve and will be avaible in the rv. We eat a local based diet mostly plant based with our own meat and broths. We can accommodate vegetarian or vegan, specialized dietary requirements may not be provided.
We are a husband and wife team that like to split up the farm work with child care. Our goal is the complete farm work in the morning so we have free time to go paddling, swimming, play, do art, make food or just hang out in the afternoon.
As we only require morning help, there is ample time to explore near by trails and lakes. We are centrally located between Vernon and Kelowna. Home to wineries, summer festivals, music events and many summer attractions.
