Farming Opportunity at Tulaberry Farm

Slocan Park BC

We are a semi-retired couple working a 35-acre organic farm in the Slocan Valley about 30 minutes from both Nelson and Castlegar BC. Our farm crops include strawberries, raspberries, garlic and pastured poultry. In addition we raise beef cows, sheep and layer hens on a smaller scale, along with a one-acre market garden and tree fruit. We sell to private customers and at the Nelson Farmers’ Market.

Our rental cottage, a small 2-bedroom house, will be vacant this fall. Our recent tenants shared chores and profits from farm projects and raised pigs on their own. They also worked off much of their rent with farm labour. However they have left to live closer to family. We would like to rent to a couple or small family wanting to share the work and benefits of farming life. We are open to new ideas about developing the farm so that it can be more productive and sustainable.

We are hoping to find people interested in developing rural skills and establishing themselves in a farming-friendly community. There are several active farmer societies in the area as well as a strong cultural presence. Please write us stating your experience and expectations to:
