The Homestead Organic Farm in Peachland, BC is seeking a couple to live and work on the farm long term!
About The Homestead Organic Farm
We have been farming organically at our 120 year old Homestead in Peachland, BC, for 33 years. We raised produce commercially for the past 32 years, but are currently only growing hay for sale. We still have gardens, berries, fruit, and a greenhouse.
We are looking for someone, preferably a couple, who is interested in living and working on an organic farm, long term. The qualities we are looking for are honesty, a good communicator, able to listen, able to work alone. willing to learn, and don’t mind taking direction. Past experience is great , but not necessary. We are mainly looking for people who want to be on our beautiful farm and share in this organic lifestyle.
We need someone who lives here year around and is a assistant manager , farm worker, caretaker. There is room to grow your own garden or share in a garden we grow together.
There is a nice , 1 bedroom cabin on the farm, it is fully furnished . There is no rent during the winter months, as there is not much work on the farm. ( November- February.) The rent is $500. per month the rest of the year. You would be responsible for electric bills and internet should you want it.
Hours: During the months of March , April and September, October the work is approx 15-20 hours a week, 5 days a week. The rest of the season is approx 20-30 hours. We also ask for some flexibility, especially during haying. There is not much farm work in winter, but there will be some paid horse care and snow plowing. Joe and I are away for part of the winter.
