Takou River is our beautiful home! We moved to the property in 2004 and live on the farm with our 3 young children. We love and care for the beautiful surroundings and converted our 150 acre farm to certified organic status when we arrived. We've planted over 10,000 native trees since we arrived and built our own grid-free home perched on the hills overlooking the river.

We hope you enjoy our special peice of paradise as much as we do!
