    Description

    My wife and I are both veterinarians but I retired recently. We have a lovely 126 acre farm on Prince Edward Island, about 14 Km outside of Charlottetown. Prince Edward Island and Charlottetown itself are tourist destinations. It would be great to have one or two folks to help me stack my annual seven cords of fire wood in the wood shed (saves time and my back). I also need some help keeping the garden in good shape. The same goes for the road down to & through our forest, It is possible that we may need the dogs to be fed occasionally. We often use our bicycles to go to and from Charlottetown on the Confederation trail and can arrange bike hires for our visitors. There is always something to do in the garden as well, Finally, help may be required to barbecue, drink wine or down some excellent Canadian IPA.
