    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we operate as a family on our place you'd experience life in Canada first hand. Dealing with nature and outdoors as you live in the midth of it - it is very different experience to be out in nature than city life. Responsibilities change by the seasons.
    You'll experience animals behaviour and farm life in general. Wildlife is around so you may see deer, bears or coyotes and if you are super lucky maybe even a moose.

    Important please note:
    PLEASE note: No smokers or vegetarians for us - sorry this does not fit our family's lifestyle.

    Often we can accommodate minor allergy to single food items. Please ask, if there is any specific problem.

    Please accept that Gluten allergies are to complex for me to handle on a daily base. Lactose intolerance is no problem as I do have to watch this for myself.
    2 dogs live with us in our home- allergies against pet hair or dust allergies can not be accommodated for this reason.

    I do have a sensitivity to strong deodorants or perfume odour, but in moderation it is usually fine.
