NEW UPDATE: Spring is arriving in the Cariboo - birds returning, snow melting and lambs on the way makes for a busy time of the farm.
Live on a small farm in rural British Columbia. I have sheep and a horse, dogs and cats as pets. The farm is 20 minutes from the closest centre with services, boutique shopping and a regional airport.
Having a drivers license is a must to allow you the freedom to explore the Cariboo. The area offers an abundance of outdoor activities from hiking and photography, to driving tours and camping.
If you are a highly social person who loves the city and night life this is not the place for you; but if you are looking to learn about Canadian culture and enjoy the serenity of nature I look forward to welcoming you to my home.

You will benefit from this exchange by learning Canadian small farm customs. I welcome the opportunity for visitors to practice their English, learn how to grow and preserve food, learn about foods in our culture for treats or healing and learn sheep husbandry. This exchange offers a rural farm experience. I would love to learn new languages, new skills, cultural cooking and about your life.

You will have your own room and a separate bathroom (that you may have to share if another guest is here) with shared living space and kitchen.
Life is very independent and centres around the farm and rural outdoor life - you must enjoy quiet outdoors.
All of our meat and some of our produce is harvested naturally. In the fall I am butchering lambs, hunting and processing meat, making sausage, drying herbs & berries, etc to put away food for the year. In the spring, the sheep are lambing so I am usually very close to home to watch over the new babies.
I enjoy meeting people who are comfortable working independently or as a team, who are interested in different cultures/languages, are good with hunting and natural food harvesting and enjoy pets and livestock.
