We also have about 6 communes still functioning with 1 still offering woofing for travelers who want to work for accomodation. Sheep and beef farming is also popular in Colville with lots of generations of family farms still running.

I grew up on the family farm, our family originated here from Wales in 1864 and have been farming here for 6 generations, I left for travel and work over the years and came back 13 yrs ago and bought the horse trekking business from my Mum, since then i have just taken over management of the Bush lodges which have been running for 20yrs by my mother also. Its a family run business and I have a love of hospitality and people.
