We’re a husband and wife team with a passion for sustainable farming and animal welfare. We met while living in Squamish BC and fell in love with each others zest for life and learning. While Robin’s passion for farming and animals had been life long Johan had only seen a glimpse of farm life while spending time on the Squamish farm, and after moving in together Johan caught the farming bug. Over the past number of years we nerded out together at farming conferences, built up our farm and started a small egg and vegetable CSA program within the Squamish community. As our passions for farming grew the reality of the day to day work in our off farm jobs became a chore, we truly wanted to give this whole farming thing a shot. So naturally, as one would, with the realities of never being able to buy land in the Squamish and surrounding areas it only seemed to make the most sense to move to the family farm in Buffalo Creek, BC, and so here we are at Big Rock Ranch learning all about what it is to be a Cariboo Farmer.
Justin is Robin’s pride and joy. He’s an 12 year old morgan quarter horse cross with oh so many stories, a true sensibility and a deep wisdom. He’s taught Robin a lot in life and she looks forward to deepening their connection and story together. Currently he’s off being a horse in a big herd at The Rock’n Star Ranch.
