Looking for a winter retreat on a spectacular drop-dead beautiful 120-acre farm on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia?

Were seeking a strong, friendly, animal-loving person who can look after our dogs, cats, chickens, and handle some simple farm chores from mid October until the end of April.

Chores may include (but are not limited to): daily animal care, snow removal (very occasional), stocking firewood, deer fence repair, seedling care, basic maintenance and farm projects, and weekly comunications with farm owners when they are away.

Ideal person is physically fit, a good communicator, and comfortable working outside.
