Fossil Beach Farm 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. We’re always looking for a great fit to join the Farm Fam!
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.
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!
