Area: British ColumbiaWe are a family ranch nestled between a mountain and a crystalline lake. In the heart of the Interlakes area, the ranch is a haven filled with animals and country-livin'. On the ranch, a normal day's activities could include cattle roundups, fixing fences, cutting and collecting firewood, housework, building projects, cooking, calving (seasonal), haying (seasonal), maintenance, and animal care. Please keep in mind that we are NOT a horse ranch; we are a working cattle ranch, and while some chores may include the horses, like rounding up and herding the cattle, or exercising and caring for the horses, but lots of the work doesn't involve the horses. We try to achieve a peaceful, loving atmosphere. We are lucky to be a few minute walk from the calm, beautiful Bridge Lake and a few minute drive from Sheridan Lake, Roe Lake, Deka Lake, Lac De Roche, and many more. After work, there may be time to enjoy a game of horseshoes, a swim in crystal-clear water, or a ride through the forests on one of our big-hearted horses. Or maybe time to practise your roping skills on our calf dummy. Life on the ranch isn't easy; there's always work to do, but we find that with teamwork and laughter, any chore can be made fun! We are looking for eager, outgoing workaways, between ages 20-40. No preference of gender, religion, or ethnicity. Must be outdoorsy and hardworking. Preferably someone with experience with horses, carpentry, handy-man work, or cattle ranching, but all applicants will be considered, regardless of experience. For 2014, we have availability at the end of June, July, August, and September. Volunteers must be physically fit. Experience in ranching, livestock, fencing, gardening, and hard work will be preferred, but the main thing we are looking for in workaways is the ability to do any type of work giving 100% and with a smile. We are fully prepared to teach you and will definitely appreciate a willing to learn attitude.
Area: Dordogne.We are a family of three with many animals and mature walnut trees that share our 7 acre piece of land in the middle of a quiet hamlet of the Dordogne. We have a holiday rentals business that operates all year round, mainly in the summer, on a piece of land that we call a nature reserve. I work in my studio as an artist in the out of season months. Our property includes 2 houses and 2 barns, one of which is Gramma's who is an infrequent visitor. We have one child of twelve years who is fluent in french, we speak french but we are in no way fluent. We have a pond where our chickens dwell and further afield we have three dogs. Our land comprises of many trees, bramble bushes another small pond and some surviving grape vines that dot about randomly. We are converting it to a wooded area that we will harvest for winter heating in the future. There are many little pathways that we have carved out through the jungle of bushes. The bushes provide habitation for animals including hedgehogs, snakes, lizards, many birds, shrews and goodness knows what else! We love it. We want to promote the nature reserve side to our business.
