About Big Rock Ranch
Big Rock Ranch is a 148-acre farm, a short 15 minute drive from the historic town of 100 Mile House, in Buffalo Creek BC. Here we grow many varieties of vegetables on 2 acres, raise heritage chickens for eggs, care for our hive of honey bees, have 3 lovely horses, and 2 wonderful farm dogs.. We sell our produce at the South Cariboo Farmers Market, in a CSA box program and to local restaurants/grocery stores from Spring to Fall every year.
Big Rock Ranch is a family run farm where sustainability and ecological practices are at its core. We believe strongly in keeping our food as close to its source as nature intended, with a large focus on animal welfare and soil health. We feel strongly about building community, our local economy and supporting it by investing locally. We focus on raising heritage chickens free range rotationally on pasture, invest in the health of our soils with low till practices and lots of compost, and are focused on environmentally aware farming practices.

Ideal candidate would be someone who’s recently graduated from an agriculture program and/or who’s invested and interested in farming as a career path.
On a week to week basis we will be prepping beds, seeding, transplanting, cultivating, pruning, harvesting, packing, selling at markets, making deliveries, building farm projects, rotationally moving our chickens, checking in on our bee hives, etc.
