Area: Western AustraliaPlease Note: At the moment we only have a vacancy for people with strong carpentry qualifications and experience. My husband and I have recently purchased a pretty 150 acre farm near Busselton. We manage our Quarter horse stud (20+ paddocked horses), including horse agistment, and also run about 100 cattle too. The farm needs new fences and the house could do with some new paint. The Margaret River wine and surfing region is not far away and we have a beautiful beach 12 kms away. Busselton, which is 14 kms away, has major events on all the time like the Jetty Swim, Ironman, concerts etc every month. With us you would be able to gain experience with horses and cattle farming, a relaxed country life-style, beautiful weather. March, April and May are our busy times until next spring when the stud season gets busy again.
Area: British ColumbiaHi! I am looking for help with running my vacation cottage and cabin, working around the ranch doing all kinds of chores, firewood help, painting, and especially construction/carpentry/furniture building skills. A couple with these skill would be ideal. I'm updating here Oct. 20th, 2014, it looks like I have help for most of early winter, so I don't think I can take more till late winter or spring, but please feel free to contact me and let me know if this looks like something you'd like. I need help pretty much year round. My name is Leo Downey and I'm the owner of the ranch. I run buffalo tours everyday through September and will be working with a dog sled team here through the winter. I think I have enough help presently am looking for help again starting around mid Dec. all thru winter I hope to host helpers again. Here is a bit about this beautiful place: We are located in the beautiful Blaeberry Valley, 10 minutes north of Golden, British Columbia. 1 hour from Lake Louise, 1.5 hours from Banff, 3 hours west of Calgary, Alberta. On the Ranch you will find meadows, wetlands, and forest with 360 degree mountain views. Enjoy the roaming buffalo, year round creeks and ponds with native fish, and pristine frontage along the Blaeberry River, fed by the Mummery Glacier. We are surrounded by amazing vistas of the Canadian Rockies and the Purcell Mountains. Wildlife, such as elk, moose, wolves, bears, puma, fox, osprey, bald eagles, and many other species of birds and native fish pass through this land. It is truly a spectacular place! I am working hard on a book and music and business, so I tend to spend evening on my own, I go to be early and get up early. Helpers have to be able to cook for themselves and entertain themselves and be okay on their own. I look forward to interacting with my helpers and we become friends, I'm always kind of sad to see you guys go. I make sure to show and teach and share things with all my helpers, but I do love my quiet alone time to be creative, so you do have to be able to be on your own, especially if you're the only helper here at the time.
