  • Beschreibung


    Hi my name is Mary. I am 54 yrs old and have 3 grown children who visit. I have a 2.5 year old grand daughter who also visits over night at times. Prior to divorce I homeschooled my children and grew alot of our own food - including animals for meat. Following divorce I went back to school and now work full time off farm as a social worker. I am currently working on my masters through distance education. I live with 3 elderly horses, 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 ducks/2chickens and 2 guinea pigs. I am interested in community living and having person(s) here who would love to pursue living and working with the land. The land is very fertile and high energy vibrations. There are fields and forest and close to a beach. Hay comes off one of the fields each year. I work a good sized garden, hot beds and berries. There is lots of space for someone(s) to create their own gardens for personal or market use. A local beekeeper has hives on the land. No chemicals are used on the land.

    I am looking for someone who wants to stay at least 4-6 months. I live with 3 horses, 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 guinea pigs. I work full time away from the farm so am looking for someone who wants to live here and help during the day while I'm away - for Monday to Friday (weekends off, unless a project is happening). So alot of independence. There are also 2-4 times a year when I go away for 7-14 days and then would be totally responsible for the animals. There really is only about 2hours of work each day so would also be the expectation of helping with bigger seasonal projects. These would include helping with haymaking, putting firewood in and stacking, gardening, some lawn mowing, fencing etc. I am very open to anyone(s) who want to have their own projects with market gardening, animals etc for their own economic/heart gains. This is a gorgeous/sacred space and would love to see someone working with it for their lifestyle goals.

  • Unterkunft


    Person(s) would have their own room in a large farm house. There are two bathrooms for the entire home - one with a large bathtub, the other with a shower. There is the option to have two large rooms in the basement with own entrance. Basic foods would be provided. This is something that could be explored together. The person(s) would cook for themselves (unless we agree on a different arrangement). Basic bulk cooking supplies are provided, all laundry and toilet supplies are provided.

    I am open to having individuals, couples and families.

    The home is a large farmhouse so there is lots of space. The animals are family members. I live alone, however, my 2.5 year old grand daughter visits over night at times. I am a quiet person so relatively quiet environment. There are lots of natural sounds - owls, coyotes, peepers, wind in the trees. I would want the farm help to feel very at home and this includes having friends or family visit. However, not into loud partying on a regular basis. There is no smoking in the home - and has to be away from the home that it doesn't blow in windows (and contained). I practice traditional yoga practices and Indigenous spirituality and am very spacious for others to practice what they wish and/or join in with me.

    Daily responsibilities include the following: I work either 7am - 7pm or 8am - 6pm. On the longer days I give the horses hay/water in the morning and feed guinea pigs so worker would put horses out, with hay/water, around 8:30am. On shorter days I put them out also. During the day worker would give hay/water around 1pm and then put them in around 4:30/5pm. Worker is also responsible for cleaning the stalls during the week, which includes putting in bedding. On longer days worker would also give dogs their supper feeding around 5:30/6pm. During the winter there will be other daily chores such as feeding the wood furnace, shovelling when necessary and cleaning ice out of stall buckets on longer work days.

    Please do not hesitate to ask any and all questions!!
