We are a family with two little girls (3 & 6 month) living in the middle of Saskatchewan in cowboy central. We live on a farm with our horses, some cattle, pigs and chickens. My husband farms organic and operates a seed cleaning plant. I raise my kids, work from home and on the local ambulance. I speak german as mother language and raise my kids bilingual. Our farm is in the prairies, lots of agriculture and cattle in the area. The nearest city is 1.5 hrs away. There is lots of lakes to swim, fish, go hiking and great nature to explore and if you like photography we get some of the most amazing skies. The land of the living skies they call Saskatchewan.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
You can learn the farm lifestyle here and maybe enjoy a cattle chaise, branding or a rodeo. We live only 15 minutes from the lake diefenbaker. Lots of wild life around here as well. If you’re lucky you can see a moose.
I prefer a female worker as they spend most their time with me and my girls. Preferred language is german so my kids learn it better.
The work is helping me out in the house and around the farm yard. Mowing grass, watering trees and flowers, some weed control and helping with the vegetable garden. Also easy animal chores feeding of chickens and horses is in our daily routine as well as keeping their pens clean. If you can ride you are more than welcome to help me keep our horses in shape. We have an outdoor riding arena as well.
It would be nice if you help out with the kids if I have some book work to do or need to run to town... I usually work along your side as much as I can. We treat everyone like family and if you want to you would be involved in all family activities and outings.
Own room in our basement with living area and own bathroom, WiFi and all meals included. We also have a car you could borrow for the area.
