We are looking for help on our hobby farm. There’s 3 of us living here full time and one part time. We have horses, rabbits, ducks, chickens, geese, donkeys, sheep, guinea fowl, peacocks, dogs and cats.
We are pretty fun people to be around. Always laughing and joking. We have a ton of animals here right now that need to be looked after but we do try to ride horses every chance we get.

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
**COVID 19 update***
Events are limited but we are still doing everything we can do safely. Hiking. Canoeing. Trail riding. We live in a very beautiful area surrounded by lakes, forests and open prairie. We will do everything with you that we possibly can. You won’t be bored.
You can learn about raising rabbits, birds, sheep. Caring for horses. Basically how to run a small hobby farm. We can cook and bake together. Grow vegetables. Some helpers have even learned how to change a flat tire (oops)!
Oh. And yes you can see the northern lights if they are out. But no promises. ;)
We are looking for help with keeping horses exercised, training horses, feeding and caring for livestock, gardening (we have no idea how to garden properly) , yard maintenance, building animal shelters and some housework. You don’t have to be good at all of it.
Intermediate to advanced horseback riders can come out on trail rides with me. Beginner riders will get many chances to ride but it might be more in the arena. People that don’t want to ride horses at all are also very welcome! Riding horses is not a requirement at this time.
We would LOVE to find someone handy with wood working or construction. We need to build some small animal housing and make some small improvements to the home.

**Update July 2021 - We now have unlimited internet thanks to Starlink. We have also upgraded our cell phone booster. No more issues with limited internet and bad service. **
We have 2 spare rooms with a queen bed in each and large windows. There is also a room in the basement (large window. Not scary) that we have to use if we have 3 or more workawyers overlapping for a bit. We try to always just have 2 at the most though.
We have a living room downstairs with a large tv and comfortable couch. You can get away from things down there if you wish but we would love it if you would do your relaxing with us in the main living room.
You can have meals with us or you can cook your own food. Pantry, fridge and freezer are always stocked.
We have a few dogs and cats in the house. If that bothers you then this isn’t the place for you. Animals do not go in any bedrooms at night.
We have a canoe you can borrow. 2-3 days a week we have a spare vehicle. If you can ride we have almost unlimited horseback riding. We are about 10 min from a provincial park with lakes, beaches, camping, hiking trails and a golf course. It’s a very beautiful area. It’s a nice mix of forests and farmland. We are 35 min to the nearest large town which is Meadow Lake, Sk. It has a pool, a movie theatre, bowling alley, many restaurants and some shopping.
We are 300km to the nearest airport (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) but it’s possible to make arrangements for us to come and get you.
We are super chill but we don’t smoke or do any sort of drugs. Occasional drink is fine but not beyond that.
