    Description

    We are a registered Canadian horse rescue charity on a certified organic apple farm. This is my home. I work full time and all funds go to maintaining the horses and improving their lives. There are about 250 apple trees.
    Past their prime..but we have enough apples for our horses.
    I recently was in accident and fractured a hip and wrist.
    I am hoping to find a workaway visitor to do light house keeping and horse or farm care if desired. I have a full time groundskeeper and some volunteers
    Also chickens and ducks free range. And soon we get some goats! Visitors can have experience with horses
