We are an enthusiastic couple starting a small farm in Musquodoboit Harbour, NS with our baby Husky Luna.We spent this past summer building a barn and raising some animals. This summer we plan to continue raising animals and adding to our farm. We are aiming for traditional methods of farming and have a lot of biodiversity. We are not from a farming background and this has been a great adventure for us & we plan to continue (just need a little help). We are raising chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, (maybe a goat for fun) and boarding horses. We also hope to do some gardening with the compost created by our animals.

We live about 45 minutes outside of Halifax, NS, just along the ocean. There are lots of wonderful outdoor activities all around us (kayaking, swimming, hiking, climbing, etc.). We are both from Quebec and moved to Nova Scotia to enjoy its beauty and tranquility. You would be part of the family as the extra room is in our basement and we would share all our meals. When not working you can enjoy hammocking and hottubing while looking at the ocean.
We are just starting our farm and looking for help this summer. Tasks will range from helping us take care of animals, gardening, putting up fences, cooking, engaging the community, etc. We currently have chickens, ducks and rabbits. In the spring we will also have horses and pigs. The tasks will be extremely diverse as we are just starting out and the amount of work is quite high despite our small size. We do expect a hard worker and someone that is comfortable around animals and dealing with animal wastes.
Large finished basement with private bathroom/shower and queen bed. Meals are provided, however, help cooking would be appreciated. We try to eat as healthy as possible and aim to eat as much from what we produce.
We are a laid back, young couple and enjoy our little paradise. However, we definitely understand the need to explore your surroundings. Therefore, we are open to offering rides in town or up to hiking site or wherever you would like to go.
