About the farm: Nestled in a valley in the west Kootenays, our farm comprises four fields that vary between 5-15 acres. We have an amazing pasture and will be rotating our fields and fertilizing with our furry friends. We are a new farm, so bringing home new animals to be with us will be part of the job! We are experimenting with some indoor crops as well so there’s plenty of work year-round. We seeking to become Certified Organic as we feel this is best for our environment and our wellbeing.
Our farm is to be a Mecca of sustainable and ecologically-friendly practices. Our valley is fairly isolated and we feel our need to protect our lands. We hope that this will resonate with you as well.
We are located about 30 min out of Rossland BC, our backyard has a cluster of mountain bike/hiking trails and Red Mountain is also right there.
