We are a small family run beekeeping business located in the beautiful eastern townships of quebec. We produce honey, wine, skincare products & have a nice big garden. During the summer time we try to be as self-sufficient as possible by growing our own veggies and raising our own meat such as meat birds. We also have pets, a 17 year old non-sociable cat, a young and very energetic labrador dog and seven laying hens.
We invite you with open arms to be a part of what we do.
We ask you to please read the full job description and only send us a message if you are truly serious and interested in coming to work with us.

Help in the house
People will get to experience what it’s like to live in our beautiful area, to live on a farm and help on the land to create wonderful things & for those who don't know french very well will definitely get the chance to practice. We love teaching and showing people about what we do as a company and a family and try our best to ingrate them into our lifestyle.
Help will consist of helping in the garden, making meals & basically with whatever physical work needs to be done around the property. A new honey house was built last summer, and we’re still working on it. So if you have building skills or are just keen on helping us finishing it up, we'd love to make you part of this great project that awaits us.
As for helping with the bees. We only harvest 3 times during the summer season, and each harvest lasts for about a week. So depending on when you come, you may and may not be assisting in beekeeping help.

We have a nice prospect tent and a large regular ten in our backyard where you will have your own space to relax on your time off. If you come in May you might have to stay in the house as it might be a little to cold to stay in a tent.
In terms of meals, you will eat with us in our house, we eat both vegetarian and meat meals. Loads of other good local products & veggies from our garden. If you love cooking, go ahead and let yourself loose!
We have multiple day hikes to do around the area, Dunham is known for its vineyards so that's a great thing to do on a day off to try our local wines & just the area it self is really nice so just a bike ride around is sufficient i'd say. This summer only one of our daughters will be around this summer, but she’ll be glad to bring you a round and show you what's around when time permits.
