    Description

    We have spent the years restoring a century farm. What we have created is a special place located in the rolling hills of Central Prince Edward Island. This hobby farm (we are not a commercial operation) has become more of a passion and we really enjoy the space that we have created. And this would not be possible without the help we have received from volunteers like you. We started hosting 15 years ago and have hosted over 100 helpers from various site and from all around the world. I think almost all of them have enjoyed the experience. In fact several have come back for several years in a row to help out. And four of our helpers have enjoyed us and PEI so much they have moved here. Check us out and if you want to join us for a day, week, month or more let us know.

Paul is a landscape architect so the time you spend with him will introduce you to gardening and garden design. Mike is a woodworker so the time you spend with him you will be building or repairing things or helping in the woods.

    We have several options depending on how many people are at the farm. We have a neat bunkhouse with two beds. There is also a guest bedroom in the farmhouse with 2 beds and there is also a restored barn that has two bedrooms. All are extremely comfortable and give you (and us) privacy.
