    Descrição

    Hello! I live on an lakefront acerage in between Armstrong & Vernon,

    It is me and my partner in the main house but we are gone 5 days every two weeks, I am 42 and he is 43, we are both very chilled but always very busy with projects around the property. I have spent a number of years travelling full time and I am keen to meet people from other countries and areas (I'm Scottish/Irish) my partner is Canadian. I have only lived on the acreage full time for two years and I'm just getting started on my plans for the place. The house is only 10 years old so not much needs done, it is really just getting set up for the farming. I work from home, so I am around most of the time.

    We have a tenant who lives in a suite below the main house, he is super friendly and very interested in the farming plans, he currently does most of the gardening and has kept things under control for the last few years, he is often pottering around the gardens doing something. He builds race cars and demolition derby trucks in his spare time and is always happy to tell you all about what he's building if you are interested.

    We have a number of vehicles on the property from Race cars to Tractors, so if that is what you are interested in, there will always be something to keep you busy.

    We live in a beautiful area and like to go on trips, but there really isn't any need to go far to find something interesting. We have an RV and a cabin cruiser boat, we live about 10 minutes from Okanagan Lake which goes all the way down to Penticton. We are about 40 minutes from Mable Lake & Shuswap lake and 30 minutes from Kalamalka Lake, all those areas are excellent for biking/hiking/boating/camping/fishing.

    The property is about 15 minutes from Vernon and less than 10 from Armstrong, the road into Armstrong is beautiful and a haven for bikers, I can cycle there in about 25 minutes and I'm not that fast (you can borrow our bikes). There is no public transport but I am in "town" most days for something, so can provide rides and there is lots of transport from there.

    We are 35 minutes from Silverstar, so coming to stay with us might be a good stop gap between summer and winter jobs if you are planning to do a ski season, we are also within driving distance of Big White & Sunpeaks.

    You will be learning how to start a farm along with me! There is a host of knowledge here, from running businesses to construction, farming, mechanics, engineering & carpentry, we also welcome your own big ideas, we are just starting out so creative minds are welcomed!

    Both me and my partner are big foodies and love to cook and try new things, we are both into movies and music and generally just enjoying life.

    Mostly I just need an extra pair of hands to help with the farming prep work. Any construction or farming experience would be awesome. If you like cooking and gardening even better! We are very flexible and there is a lot of work to be done, so you can let us know what you are interested in or any ideas for projects.

    I am very flexible on the hours you work, if you want to do them all in a few days and have the rest of the week off it is fine with me.

    Mostly at first it will be land clearing, gardening, general maintenance and removing old barns.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    Your accommodation would be in the house (we have two spare double bedrooms - one ensuite) in or depending on the amount of people staying in the summer in a 30 foot RV overlooking the lake. RV is very comfortable, in good shape and has air con/heat, a decent sized fridge & freezer, two double beds and a dining area, so it could accommodate a couple or a group of friends. There is a small oven, a microwave and a gas stove top. The RV also has a bbq, a gas fire pit, camping chairs etc. We are very easy going so don't mind music and having a good time. No restrictions on weed or cigarette smoking as long as it's outside. You would also be welcome to chill out on our deck or anywhere around the property. We have a fire pit right in the middle of the garden and often have that going in the evenings.

    There are just tons of things to do in the area, anything lake related, the cycling is excellent, there are beautiful hikes to be done in very direction. Loads of vineyards and organic living. Vernon is a reasonable sized town with plenty to do and there are many places close by to go camping. I go to Kelowna about once a month but there really isn't any need as Vernon has pretty much everything available.

    I have 3 dogs, two born Nov 2020 one is a Bernese Mountain Dog and one Bernese/Maremma and one 14 year old lab, I have 7 acres and there is another field attached to my property which is fully open of about 20 acres and a reserve across the creek, so loads of room to roam. I have had a number of workawayers with dogs and it has worked out well and there are 2 cats on the property (not in my house) they are generally outdoor and are dog smart! We also get a ton of wildlife here.
