    Beschreibung

    The freshest air, the healthiest food, the opportunities to learn about vegetable and protein production in an organic way. Now more than ever we are focusing on becoming self sufficient. What does that look like? We produce our own meat, vegetables, eggs, and dairy. We have started to produce honey, mill our own flour, bake bread, preserve vegetables, and make pasta, cured meats, butter, yogurt, kefir, and cheeses. We are looking for a volunteer who would appreciate learning these skills. Is that you?

    Certified organic for the past 31 years, our farm is considered an ecological reserve of over 3000 acres of mostly aspen forest, three creeks and several beaver ponds. Organic since 1990 and volunteer hosts for almost as long, our diverse ranch includes grass finished Belted Galloway cattle, Plains bison, free range chickens and turkeys but our specialty are the Berkshire pigs. We raise heritage breeds in a gentle environment from farrow to finish, outside, year round. "Zorka" and "Clara" the milk cows are close members of our family, supplying all our dairy needs. Easy to milk too!

    Lots to learn on this farm. Learn how to raise many different kinds of livestock in a traditional and humane manner. From hosting travellers for the past 3 decades I've realized that the most important learning that people have done is learning more about themselves. Values and goals are big ones.

    Something different? Pigs, bison, beavers, music, milk cow, northern lights, wilderness, tractors, gardening, organic, turkeys, trees, swans, skiing, solitude, chickens, community, canoeing, campfires, choir, concerts, cats, cows, cuisine, festivals, fishing, rodeos, etc. etc. etc. Something different happening every day!

    Help is appreciated throughout the year with most jobs centered around caring for the animals (no shit shoveling as all animals are free range on pasture). Accommodation is either in our log house or in the two buildings separate from the family home. Volunteers should be kind, independent, innovative and ready for adventure. People wanting to learn skills about raising livestock organically will learn lots. Some have even gone on to start their own farms!

    Meals include a lot of organics with all meat (organic) coming from the farm. Lots of opportunities for cooking or learning how to cook. All living costs are covered with the exception of personal products, outside entertainment, clothes and junk food.

    Aside from good times on the farm, we also try to provide our guests with a "cultural experience" unique to our area. This can be anything from hiking, canoeing, XC skiing, fishing, visiting waterfalls, concerts, auction sales, star gazing, workshops, protests, rodeos, etc. Lots of campfires and neighbourhood parties. Even the northern lights (aurora borealis) like to visit. Other visitors include moose, deer, coyotes, swans and the occasional bear. Cooks and musicians are most appreciated! We have a piano in the house along with other instruments. Internet is "high" speed.
