    If you love animals, horses and gardening you'll love our small farm. Located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, BC, it's nestled between the ocean and mountains, a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. You may be greeted by Tetely the pig, Skittles the goat, or Eyore the donkey.

    When our children were leaving home for University, my husband, a retired Professor, and myself, a horticulturist, set up a Farm Adventure Program. Our goal to introduce the public to happy, healthy, farm animals and horses. We currently have approximately 100, two and four legged animals running around, including horses, ponies, llama, mini horse, mini donkeys, pig, dwarf goat, peacocks, turkeys, assorted chickens/bantams, ducks, micro pigs, african goose, guinea pigs, pigeons, bunnies, and our Andalusian horses whom we had been breeding for 16 years(now semi retired). Not believing in cages, the majority of our animals roam free, though we do have a large room (petting pen) housing adorable bunnies, guinea pigs, pigeons, chicks, piglets; bringing smiles to children and the young of heart. Albert and I would like to share our farm, animals, horses, gardens, as well as our unique natural setting with like minded young travellers. In particular individuals interested in learning about and working with farm animals, horses, and gardens. Horse experience a plus.

    Renumeration, minimum wage, is paid to helpers as well as complimentary accommodation in our travel trailer. Appropriate permits are required for working.
