    Looking for a NON SMOKING couple or singles to come and help on our homestead. We are looking for stays of at least 2-4 weeks. We have working (but friendly!) livestock guardians and cats so can't accept pets. There is a separate home for the stay.

    Our ideal candidate(s):
    -Pay close attention to detail
    -Have a good work ethic
    -Some working knowledge of power equipment such as brush cutters, chainsaws
    -Can drive a manual (stick shift) vehicle
    -Must have personal vehicle to get groceries

    Hello and welcome to the West Coast of Canada!

    ☀️ Spring is here and our family is looking for a couple or 2 singles to help around our farm. homestead, orchard and garden! We ask for 25 hours a week in exchange for grocery money and accommodations in a private home on our farm.

    ***Please note that a car for getting around to the grocery store and exploring the area is required as we are a 30 minutes from town (Courtenay) and 15 minutes from a grocery store.***

    ACCOMMODATIONS
    Accommodations are provided in the 2nd home on the farm. We provide $200/week for couples ($100 for singles) for groceries so you will do all your own cooking and once a week we share a meal in our home.

    ABOUT US
    We are a family of 5 and are located in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. Our Certified Organic farm is 73 acres and we have devoted our lives to raising animals on pasture to produce the highest quality meat and milk products. We have a herd of beef cows, laying hens, ducks, geese and 3 milk cows. We make our own butter, yogurt and cheeses. During the pasture season we raise heritage hogs on pasture and meat chickens. We also have 2 friendly great pyrenees dogs.

    We love sharing our passion for organic regenerative agriculture with travelers from around the world! Our goal is to provide a fun and interesting work environment to our volunteers in exchange for hard work.

    LOCAL ACTIVITIES
    - Our farm has a beautiful 2 acre pond with a paddle boat where you can see wildlife such as beavers.
    - We are surrounded by a wonderful bike trail system that leads to the Tsolum River for swimming on hot days.
    - There is a fire pit for volunteers for after work and enjoying with a cold beer.
    - We try to host a group dinner once a week in our log home with food from the farm to visit and get to know each other.
    - We are 10km from Miracle Beach nature park and sandy Saratoga beach.
    - Nymph Falls is 25 minutes away, (a favorite place to go!) with amazing swimming and cliff jumping. 
    - We are right under Mount Washington, the the best mountain on the Island for hiking, snowboarding, skiing, zipline
    - We are next door to one of the biggest Wineries in the Comox Valley, Coast Black Winery and have many other wineries in the area
