  • Description

    Description

    We have just purchased a 40 acre farm property on a lake in Ontario. The property is about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Toronto. It is near Peterborough, Ontario. We are setting up a permaculture farm. There is a lot of work to be done on the farm like removing the invasive species and clearing out the barn. The farm has a fantastic view of the lake and at the end of the day you can go to the lake to swim. If you are interested in visiting Toronto as well as working on a farm that is close to Toronto this is a great opportunity for you.
