    ***Ukrainian Refugees Are Welcome here, if you want to stay on a farm. (As well as our typical Workawayers!) We have room for many beds downstairs so that a whole family can be together if needed, including grandparents, parents, children. As long as the Canadian government brings you to Canada, we are here for you. We understand Ukrainian even though we don't speak it so well anymore***

    We are a farm with 8 horses. We've had to sell most of our cattle, which was very hard to do. In summer, we have 500 acres of land that we have to farm. Some of it includes making hay, some of which we use for ourselves, and the rest of the farm is in crops. We are in a lovely area surrounded by nature. We have farmed here for 40 years and would like to keep on, but find that we need some help now that we're older. We have alot of horses that could use a loving hand and lots of attention every day, from energetic volunteers! Usually we plant a vegetable garden in summer for ourselves mostly, and could use help with that, and regular yard maintenance. We also have cats and dogs. Would be nice to meet new travellers again after such a long shut down due to covid.

    Nice, peaceful country living. Horses to ride for free time, for those that are experienced riders, and wish to do so, a lake nearby for swimming in summer, bikes available, nature all around. If you know how to entertain yourself and want to enjoy your time with the animals, this is your chance to do that. Experience the Manitoba Prairie Life. We had foreign exchange students some years ago, and we always have visitors that want to see a real farm and pet real animals...we were used to having people here all the time. Our area is quite multi cultural, immigrants from alot of countries have settled here many years ago, so we have all types of people living out here.
    Would prefer if travellers are fully vaccinated for Covid 19 as we are.

    Elderly couple needs a helping hand around a 500 acre farm that has 8 horses and a couple cattle. All tasks are easy to learn and involve helping around animals or for their benefit. Maintaining some fences, and a few barnyard chores, some help in the house and yard/ garden maintenance, as well. Hostess also does baking and is a Vendor at Craft & Bake Sales in surrounding towns. Always nice to have help with that as well. Certain times of the year, we might need someone to look after the house and pets while we go for a week or 2, on a trip, with grandchildren etc. If you are a reliable, respectful, and responsible person, and interested in something like this, contact us. We have a lake nearby for swimming and bikes to ride as well.

    Shared space /sleeping arrangements, unless you're the only one here at the time.

    Beds available in the downstairs basement of our home.

There is a living room area just for helpers, down there as well, where you can watch your own tv shows or just be together with other travellers, and play board games, read, talk etc. Or you can join us upstairs if you don't mind watching what we watch!

    We provide over 100 channels from Satellite TV as well as rural WIFI. The helpers would be expected to keep that area clean as well. Food provided, usually self serve at breakfast and lunch, with the main meal in evening made by us, at suppertime. We eat meat here as well. We also have pets that need to be inside the house, as well as some outdoor ones.

    Wifi available as well as Satellite tv with over 100 channels, but plenty of things to do outside, such as horse riding, if you are an experienced rider, or just going for walks, having a campfire, biking, swimming in summer, skating on the lake in winter...sports! There are also other local events that they can be taken to, like hockey games in winter, festivals in the area, rodeos in summer, a Bingo game if you're interested. Or just enjoy and relax in the countryside. We prefer that visitors be fully vaccinated for Covid 19 just as we are, where possible.
