  • Description


    We prefer female work aways please, but are now also open and keen to have a male/female couple as well. Family Farm located in the Foothills of Alberta. We are a family of 6, my wife and I are early 40’s and we have a 21 year old and 19 year old sons in university In USA. We have two little girls 6 & 4 yrs old. We live on a beautiful farm 27 acres with 3 mini donkeys, a horse, a llama, outdoor cats and two dogs.

    We are very active and love to host and travel we are always building into peoples lives and absolutely love life. We are strong in faith but not preachy if that’s not your thing. We are looking for some help around the yard mowing and working the ground a working with plants and trees . Also looking for some help with the girls to make sure they don’t get into trouble.

    We are located 45 minutes north of Calgary Alberta Canada between two towns. We have vehicles so make sure you can drive as we are not interested in you being trapped here ( but it is beautiful).

    You must want to have fun! Or be committed to wanting to become fun ( we will help you out of your shell).

    Living arrangements are in a beautiful RV located on our property. You will find we are very flexible but will want you to do your part too. This would include lawn mowing, weed spraying, house cleaning, possibly baby sitting, painting, maintenance, set up for an event, etc.

    We are engaged in our community and we are all about family and friends, if you want to grow and be challenged in a safe place then you better reach out to us! If you have massage skills you will be put on the top of the list , hahaha

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are close to Calgary and the mountains and major parks; we offer a modern farm life with tons of space. The property we have is a 27 acre fenced estate that is completely beautiful and surreal to live on most days.
    As a family we operate many businesses and offer a vast array of experience and knowledge. We have deep relationships that you will be exposed to and have opportunities to grow from.
    We have everyday Cowboys to urban business women in our back yard and a full experience of Canada’s most talented and exceptional people.
    I would boldly consider our family somewhat ambassadors for this beautiful nation.
