Live the dream with us!


We are currently seeking long term live in helpers, to assist us on our 8 acre mixed farm. We raise laying hens, pekin meat ducks, Nubian milking goats, Icelandic and East Friesian Sheep for milk/wool/meat, and quail for eggs/meat. We also have a 1/2 acre market garden and make goat milk soap.

Work would be in exchange for room and board, in the beautiful Salmo Valley. The right couple or people would be offered a section of unkempt land for your own small farm business in exchange for help around the farm. This is a perfect opportunity to try the farming/homesteading lifestyle before making any big purchases.

Some things you would be expected to help with are, but not limited to.
