    Description

    Welcome travelers !
    We are located just south of Edmonton Alberta on a 80 acre farm and sum what of a hobby center.
    Haying in July and tree planting is usually the flavor of the day, we are usually relocating trees. Most of the digging is done with the bobcat and other implements to make our work less of a task and more of a form of enjoyment to enjoy the country life.
    We do have a garden most every year with a green house that we take pride in to do some of our special items such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash etc.
    We have Leonberger dogs and we usually have one or two litters a year and so our morning starts with walking dogs and feeding adults as well as care for puppies if we have any.
    This year is the year to put our bronze art gallery into use again. In my studio we do mold making, wax casting and also some bronze casting.
    Some construction is usually done on the farm with changes in the home to accommodate more comfortable living area for the travelers. Also outdoor landscaping will be on our list of things to design and create,
    So as you see we have a wide variety of things to take part in.
    Time is made available to travelers to view our surrounding area to see what made our area special as well.
    My wife and I are mainly the ones that are mostly involved in the work around our farm. My wife is a ultra sound tech and works a 4 day shift weekly away from the home. Our daughter is a teacher in Edmonton and lives at our home as well. I have been involved in construction most of my life and have also been involved in the teaching profession in my early years.
    We enjoy meeting people and we are happy to spent time with people from other countries to hear about their different styles of living.
    If this is something you might enjoy you will find us easy to get along with. Our meals are usually a gathering of everyone at which time we plan the day or share the days activities.
    Look forward to meeting some of you.
