    ******** Covid 19 update. Yukon Territory has closed borders, but essential agriculture volunteers from within Canada are accepted with an approved 14 day quarantine plan. We would be willing to quarantine the right couple or individual at our expense in exchange for a longer term volunteer stay. Please contact us for details. Thank you!


    We are a rural homestead style farm with horses, cows, pigs and chickens looking for help with all aspects of farm life, animal care, field work, house work and cooking. We also have a year round horseback riding program specializing in "natural horsemanship". Accomplished riders and horsemen are welcome! The farm is 40km from downtown Whitehorse and we are surrounded by wilderness. If you seek a simple life in a beautiful landscape we would love to hear from you.

    Travelers who would like to come to this young farm in the Yukon wilderness will spend some time alone. Living a simple life with few conveniences and hard work can help put todays problems in perspective and find joy in simple things.

    Help

    We are grateful for help with all aspects of farm operations, field work, house work and animal care. We prefer to have helpers who can stay at least 3-4 weeks as it takes some time to learn the routines. Our life on the ranch is full of hard work. Taking pleasure in working physically with your body would be necessary to have a good time here. Help could be firewood, cleaning (indoors and outdoors), feeding and watering animals, clearing fence lines, picking weeds and sticks from fields and other activities, both inside and outside. If you have special skills we are happy to learn about them. We are delighted if you are an expert horse rider or have knowledge of carpentry, farming or farm animal care, but if you are interested we are also willing to teach you how you can help us.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have very simple accommodations and no running water in the cabins. We use outhouses for toilets. There is a pump house with shower and laundry facilities a short walk from the cabins. Our farm is located 40km from the nearest community and there is no public transportation to go to town on short notice. This is a workaway best suited for helpers who enjoy solitude and would enjoy being surrounded by wilderness.
