  • Description

    Description

    We are an organic farm that raises grass-fed beef, lamb and goat. Our animals have lots of freedom and roam the land. Our property lies within 150 acres of grassy paddocks and bush, populated by over 30 cows, 7 goats and 15 sheep. This farm has been organic since 1972 and is well known for the humane way of treating the animals. We have accepted wwoofers and workaway help for the past 10 years and love teaching everybody the benefits of organic farming and nutrition. We love outgoing talkative people to help us on our farm. We enjoy stories, laughing and having fun.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We farm environmentally and animal friendly. This means animals are kept outside most of the year, free roaming the paddocks and grazing. We are full of expert knowledge on a wide range of organic practices, animal husbandry as well as being able to offer nutritional advice and information regarding health issues. Learn how to live the most eco-friendly and beneficial way for yourself and the animals' well-being.

    Every day chores include feeding animals inside and outside, cleaning the barn and filling the water tanks in the morning and the evening. The afternoon is free. General maintenance also includes restocking barn supplies and hay. Stamina is a great asset.
    We love to teach and spread our knowledge. We both have a wide range of experience that we like to share in the barn or at the dinner table. We enjoy listening to your experiences as well.
    Spring is on its way. Right now, we have a lot of cleaning up to do around the barn and in our flower garden. It would be great to find another kind person that is willing to help out. We offer a quiet and peaceful environment working outside or with the animals in the barn.
    Please check our website for more details or email your questions.

    Every Sunday, we usually go out for the afternoon to visit local festivals, events or villages. Helpers are welcome to join us or stay on the farm and just relax. We can drop you off at a nearby mall to do some shopping or spend more time skyping with your family or friends. (We have internet and phone available for our helpers at the farm as well).
    Our farm is located adjacent to the Trans Canada Trail in the countryside where you can run, hike or use a bicycle in your spare time. The next small town is only 15 min. away by car and you can join us on our shopping sprees during the week.
    You can spend your time off in the city if you wish.
