  • Description

    Description

    Located near the beautiful Moose Mountains in southeast Saskatchewan we operate a small scale, grass based livestock farm on native prairie. Our farm offers a wonderful opportunity to explore our tree filled ravines and discover evidence of life in Saskatchewan before European settlers, such as First Nations teepee rings and buffalo rub stones. We are trying to live a self sustaining life so our farm is constantly evolving. We have a variety of animals such as meat and egg chickens, turkeys, pigs, beef cows and Jersey milk cows. All animals live on pasture and are regularly moved to fresh grass. Jobs range from feeding and moving animals to milking cows, yard and garden work and even childcare for our two young daughters. There is work for people of all skill levels. There is no longer bus service to our town but we can pick you up in Regina if you plan on staying longer than 3 weeks. We are experienced travelers and understand what it is like to be in a new land. We love meeting people and sharing in their customs. Warren can speak basic Spanish. Welcome!
