  • Description

    Description

    We are a three generation family ranch in the Cariboo region of B. C..
    Our comfortable log home is situated on a lake which offers great swimming and canoeing. Wilderness hiking is also available right from our doorstep.There are other farms in the area with helpers and summer bonfires are great for getting to know both the residents and fellow travellers.
    We raise grassfed beef on managed pastures as well as organic chickens, and a few pigs in our semi wilderness setting. We have been operating the ranch since 1974 when we came in by boat and constructed our first cabin. We are interested in providing healthy food for our family and for sale. This summer we are continuing our greenhouse cultivation and doing lots of gardening. We will be converting a section of the garden to raised boxes .We are experimenting with various berries and have planted some nut trees which we hope will provide a lasting legacy on the land.
    This summer, the main activities include haying, small animal care, and gardening. We appreciate helpers who can commit to stay for at least a month as there is so much to learn! We also have an extensive agricultural library! Some familiarity with machinery would be an asset, as is basic outdoor knowledge. Helpers really need to 'get their hands dirty' ! However, enthusiasm is the main ingredient needed!
    Our home is very comfortable and we enjoy sharing time and stories with visitors.
    We can meet travellers in Williams Lake. There is now twice weekly bus service from Vancouver on Adventure Charters. It leaves from the Surrey Sky Train station.

    Aide

    We welcome volunteers with an interest in agriculture and healthy food. We enjoy sharing our experiences in building this place over the last 40 years! This summer we will be moving our cattle daily to fresh pastures managed with electric fencing , gardening(planting, weeding, harvesting), and caring for small animals. We will have 10 feeder pigs, 30 laying hens, and probably upwards of 100 chickens for meat. We do have small children about the ranch and would appreciate people who can interact with children.
    In the winter we have cattle feeding and chickens to look after, as well as firewood to chop!
    There are always building and repair projects on the ranch!

    We have several family members in this valley and there is a lot of visiting and sharing of activities. We all enjoy summer evening bonfires and we encourage our helpers to swim and canoe right from our front door. For the past two summers we have hosted "House Concerts" on the ranch. Depending on the season we attempt to show our helpers around the region or get them to attend local events.
    In the winter we enjoy cross country skiing.
