Employment

Join us where the water’s warm and the sun is bright

Work on the waterfront

Fossil Beach Farm LTD. is a professionally run, aboriginal owned, mixed use agri-tourism, orchard, and livestock farm. Nestled on the sunset side of Hornby Island, we operate from May-Sept. and hire 4-5 seasonal employees. We are joined by a high end, appreciative, and loyal clientele who make guest services a pleasure.

Though lots of our staff have accommodation on Hornby Island, the farm does also offer employees the option to stay on site, in their own RV or campervan, with use of water, power and sewage. 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.

If this sounds like a summer you’d like to experience, you love people, have a farm work ethic, and don’t mind chasing down a cow or two, see below!
