    Descrição

    Hello and welcome!

    We are a family of five (44, 44, 20, 8, and 6) living on a small, off-grid homestead farm in the remote and stunning Kispiox Valley in northern BC. Our home is a cozy wooden house by the Kispiox River, surrounded by wilderness and abundant wildlife.

    Originally from Switzerland, we moved to Canada seven years ago and have fully embraced the beauty and challenges of this lifestyle.

    Our days are filled with various projects and activities:

    *Managing firewood and logs
    *Tending to our expansive 1000+ m² garden
    *`Weeding
    *Harvesting and processing our produce
    *Building a small guest cabin and sauna
    *Caring for animals and cleaning the chicken coop
    *Homeschooling our adventurous children, Jaro and Zora
    *Cooking on a wood stove and maintaining our home
    *Renovating and repairing machinery
    *Forest tasks
    *Making hay

    We stay connected to the world through satellite internet and solar panels. We see friends and neighbours regularly. Our farm is home to two big, friendly dogs, chickens, and cats. Other animals coming soon. We also gather wild foods and fish.

    In your free time, enjoy activities such as:

    Fishing, hiking, swimming, and boating on the river, river hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife watching, sitting around a campfire under a starry sky.

    We invite individuals and families to join us. We offer a bedroom with two single beds, and in the summer, you can pitch your tent or set up your own wilderness camp. Our farm is near HWY 37, leading to Yukon and Alaska.

    Joining us means not only helping out but also learning about farming, agriculture, soil and natural resource management, food processing, English and German.

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    There is a rough road going to our place. We can pick you up in the next town if necessary but appreciate it if you come by car, at least to our parking lot before the rough trail section starts. If you stay longer than 3 weeks, we also can pick you up in Smithers. In winter, we are only accessible via snowmobile.

    We live remote and in a natural setting that requires good physical and mental health conditions.

    In the winter months, we have limited electricity because we're hooked up to solar panels.
