Summer Progress

Summer Progress

Well to say it was a busy summer would be an understatement at best. Between trying to pull 60-70hr weeks at work (oh the glorious film world), I also came home on my time off and tended to the farm and garden. I wouldn’t be lying if I said I wished I chose the later for a regular day to day, but the bills needed to be paid and animals needed to be fed 😉 The 2-5 year plan is to move full time onto the farm and get a good start happening on the farmstead, growing local organic food for the Squamish community, hosting guests here on the farm in our tiny home B&B, raising free range happy chickens and pigs, and having a couple more horses join our herd. Our mission is to bring the people, the animals, and our food back to their roots, quite literally. Where the animals are free to roam as they so should, food is grown as much to its natural environment as possible and for us to come back to our relationship with the water we use, the food we eat, the power we pull and where our waste goes. Having more of a true relationship in whole, where everyone can come and be a part of it all, and so be immersed in this gorgeous place we call home. We look forward to sharing this dream with those near and far and hope you’ll join us in the not too distant future. In the meantime here’s some photos of this summer, the animals, gardens, and the tiny home well on...
Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Has Sprung!

Well it’s been a hot minute since I last updated our website and blog, and to say its been busy would be an understatement. We’ve been up to so much on the farmstead we’ve barely had a minute to sit back and take it all in, although we’re definitely learning to. In January we said our farewell to a friends horse who joined us in the beginning of our journey at Elaho, and welcomed a new lovely face who Johan’s come to rename Annabel. What a gem of a horse she is, looking forward to getting to know her more over the years, such a sweet soul with this one <3 Since February we’ve been getting up to oh so many things. The boys and I built a second horse shelter in record time, 2 days to be exact, and we decided to go with 3 bays this time! Check it out! Johan built his sauna house, which has turned into being the tool shed for the time being. An orange door to suit his favourite colour. We fixed up the old shed and turned it into a chicken coop. We even built 2 new garden beds, brought in fill and planted them. A coworker started way to many tomato seeds and I was blessed with these beauties. And we brought the blueberry bushes back to life. And somehow we even managed to get the round pen built and running, new boards up in the horse field and find sometime to sit back and take in the beauty that is ;...
