  • Description

    Description

    We have a 97-acre hobby farm (laying chickens and organic vegetables) and horse boarding stable in the Frontenac Arch biosphere area, just off the St Laurence river and ten minutes from downtown Kingston Ontario. It is a beautiful area for hiking, biking, riding, and boating.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are university-educated (psychologist, historian, IT developer) and widely-read; we like to stay up on current events and discuss them. We also have an awesome movie collection and wifi everywhere ;-)

    Help

    We need help weeding our large organic vegetable garden, moving hay, and mowing pastures. Familiarity with horses is an asset, as is familiarity with tractors and a driver's license.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have miles of hiking trails, a golf course next door and a marina half a kilometer away. The biking is excellent (the Kingston Triathlon route cycles right past our driveway). Kingston's downtown is ten minutes by car or 30 minutes by bicycle, passing Fort Henry historic site on the way.

    Kingston is home to two universities and a college, so there is a very active arts scene. The area has deep historic roots, interesting geology, and lots of wildlife. We are centrally located between Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal so day trips are quite feasible. Be aware, we have a dog; he is very friendly and well-behaved but sheds profusely.
