Ongoing Events

The Co-op hosts events throughout the year including ‘open farm’ picnics and educational tours. Groups who have visited and enjoyed the farm include 4-H, University of Northern BC, Farm Folk-City Folk, Windsor House School, and the Canim Land Band Elders. The Co-op supports WWOOF and other agriculture and volunteer programs. We are also involved in a badger monitoring project.

One of our main fundraising projects is roasting and selling premium, co-op friendly, and sustainably-produced coffee. We also sell an assortment of greeting cards and other items. From May to September, you can find us at the 100 Mile House Farmers' Market (see below), or you can also email us to purchase items at other times or during the winter months.
