Farm description

Our farm is a 75-acre slice of the old Bombini Ranch, in the heart of beautiful Boundary Country, nestled between the Trans Canada Trail and Crown Land in the southern end of the Monashee mountain range. The farm is currently home to 20-ish acres of mostly flat pasture including a large grove of seabuckthorn berries, Boundary Creek and the smaller Haas Creek, and 40-ish acres of forest. It is deeply important to us to be engaged community members and thoughtful stewards of this land. We envision a mixed-farm driven by organic and regenerative practices, and would like to contribute our ideas and energy in ways that enable us to keep our day jobs as global health and international development researchers (we currently live on-farm and telecommute). We have a few ideas about what would work well here: a food forest, cold-hardy fruit trees and a cidery, mushrooms, a market garden, dairy goats for cheese, and chickens or other birds for eggs. We'd be thrilled to see the farm become a place of learning and innovation with educational opportunities for people of all ages. We're interested in leveraging our university affiliations to support agroecological experiments in community-driven sustainable development. We're half an hour from Grand Forks, an hour from the Okanagan Valley and the heart of Canada's wine industry, and a 2 hour drive in either direction from Kelowna and Nelson.

Farm opportunity

We’re looking for a lead farmer (or a couple or pair of friends) interested in a cooperative approach, excited about what we have to offer, and capable of leading the farm operation with creative confidence. We both work off-farm as researchers, so don’t have full days to dedicate to this project - although we do have plenty of energy, evenings and weekends! We currently do not have on-site housing available, but plenty of space to set something up. For the right farmer with the right plan, we're open to financially supporting startup costs to help get the farm going.
