Our homestead/farm is a lifelong project and we are only 10 years in. We’re new enough to the land here that there are still many unexplored farming opportunities. That said, a decade of experience has given us a good understanding the needs and yields of many agricultural pursuits and we are happy to advise and research new directions. Our main focus right now are perennial plants and heritage sheep and llamas, carefully selected as the optimum foundation for a farm that adapts to a changing climate and a changing market.

If you have a waste not mentality and lean towards collaborative projects, our land opportunity might be just right for you.

ABOUT THE LAND

With 50 acres of land that includes a productive hayfield, an acre in hops, an eight year old forest garden, 15 acres of woodland bursting with edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms, and a series of ponds and rainwater collection systems this is a self-sustaining operation.

We also have an incredibly robust solar power system that has been designed and upgraded over a 10 year period to support both residential and commercial uses, with power lines going out to a huge hay barn and a smaller workshop/animal barn. Soil testing, water testing, and a soil fertility plan are all part of our farm management practices. As a bonus, we are only 10km from New Hazelton and only 45 minutes from Smithers and the airport.
