    Description

    I, Daniel, am a young organic farmer. I grow many herbs and vegetables and raise chickens, ducks, geese, goats & sheep on a beautiful 40 acre property in central Alberta. I live with two cats and have two very friendly outside dogs.

    We're going to be entering our spring season soon, so we'll have lots of spring work around the farm including:

    repairing fences, starting greenhouse plants, working up the veggie fields, and cleaning up around the farm.

    Weather can be pretty changeable here in Alberta, be prepared for just about anything! We do have extra muckboots, jackets etc on hand!

    What else ...

    Come and learn about organic farming in a northern climate. I am an easy-going young farmer and will try to provide you with a fun farm experience. In the summertime we sometimes have a campfire in the evenings to relax. We really enjoy food (growing it and eating it!) and always eat together.

    We do weekly trips into town where you are welcome to come along (tuesday and thursday evenings). We are about a 10 minute drive away from a small provincial park where you can go swimming in the river or for a picnic. We are also a 25 minute drive to Red Deer & a 15 minute drive to Olds.
