  • Description


    There are two properties in the town of Kispiox, one in front with electricity and the other where I live is off-grid. There is 328 acres in total. With the hay and the vegetables I produce, I am working about 100 acres. I live in a small cabin with a woodstove. I also have a garden where I grow other vegetables for my own use as well as lots of perennial berry bushes. The property has a creek running through it, and has a large wooded area in addition to the pasture land.

    I use local soil from the forest to supplement my gardens. I do not use manure or any chemical fertiliser. I do not spray, I do not use pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides. I use a tractor and other machinery to work the soil and harvest.
