Land Opportunity: Off-grid Wilderness Oasis near Hazelton, BC

Posted by Jolene Swain on February 13, 2020

We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.


For over 40 years we’ve lived off the grid (with an array of solar panels and a backup generator run on recycled veggie-oil) on our 160 acre Goddess Country homestead of mixed forest with several creeks, ponds and cleared areas for gardening and pasture.


We have a good sized vegetable patch and orchard with perennials including currants, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, hascaps, asparagus, and apple, plum, cherry, and hazelnut trees. As well we continue to raise ducks, turkeys and bees, have three horses, and pick a multitude of edible wild foods and herbs etc.  We eat a lot of what the garden has ready or what is in the root cellar.

We also have a large greenhouse (64’x12′) which gives us a longer growing season for early greens, tomatoes, peppers etc. and it is home to grape and kiwi vines along with an apricot, a couple of peach trees and a few perennials.

About two years ago we constructed a biomeiller (huge compost pile) for the heating of the water for our in-floor hot water system and will be taking it apart for use as compost this gardening season.



We are looking for fellow agrarians who are physically fit, (No smokers please!), hardworking, keen and quick to learn new things, and able to handle remoteness and all kinds of weather situations.  Our nearest neighbour is 600m away and the closest town is 10km.
In exchange we treat you like family and welcome you into our comfortable, striving to be self sustaining lives, and look forward to sharing our meals and ideas with you!!
