Join us where the water’s warm and the sun is bright
Fossil Beach Farm LTD. is a professionally run, aboriginal owned, mixed use agri-tourism, orchard, and livestock farm. Nestled on sunset side of Hornby Island, we operate from May- Sept and hire 4-5 seasonal employee’s. We are joined by a high end, appreciative, and loyal clientele who make guest services a pleasure. Most of our staff will live on part of the 80 acre farm during the season, camping or living in their RV’s. Although the days can be long, each evening is usually celebrated by a warm swim or paddle board on our semi private beach and a cold pressed juice or cider.
The farm offers all employee’s with full use of the Farm’s amenities, camping/RV space, discounts on goods, occasional staff dinners, full tip out, competitive wages and a year end completion bonus.
If this sounds like a summer you’d like to experience, love people, have a farms work ethic, and don’t mind chasing down a cow or two, see below!
