We are a young family with 2 boys. We own a little farm with a lot a different animals, but our main herd is dorper sheep. When we were 20 years old we went on a trip around Europe and decided to try workaway and this is how it all started. We worked on a sheep farm and loved it so much we decided we needed one. Here we are 6 years later owning our very own sheep farm to which we added many other animals. We also have chickens, rabbits, dogs, ducks, gooses and 2 little cow. We have a lot of work since we both have a job and since we just started this huge project. We wanted a simple life for our children (a lot of work but stil simple in our eyes) You are very welcome to be part of this journey.

For now we can offer a bed in the second living room which is use as a playing room for our 2 boys. The ultimate goal is to have a loft in the garage so our guests would have a more private place. We would share the bathroom and the kitchen. We offer a good and unlimited wifi to contact your family and watch netflix. We always have coffee, milk bread meat and veggies. We would do groceries together for you to like what you eat and have a little something for snacks.
We are a bit far from public transport but I can take you to the metro or bus in the morning if you're up early. From there you can go anywhere; Montreal is beautiful and offers a lot a great activities. But montreal is not the only beautiful city you can visit. It always depend on the season but you can can Ski in the winter approximately 25-35 minutes from our farm. In summer, there is a lot of activities; hicking, cycling, skydiving and a lot of great festivals to enjoy. You can go shopping not too far from our place.
