  • Description

    Description

    I live on the family farm and look after it in the summer months. In the winter I shut it down and travel. This farm has been in the family for 67 years now. My neighbour's farm joins ours. They have been there for about 100 years or more. They live there year round. Between the two of us we can keep a couple of people busy all summer. We live on a large beautiful lake, in a very pretty area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is country living. There are no bars or restaurants close..so we do most things at home. Most always have a campfire going and BBQ outside. They will learn a lot of small things depending on their current knowledge, of course. I hope we learn some things from them too. It is a fairly small and friendly community.

    This is a pretty relaxed place. No heavy work. It gets a little busy when time to plant the organic gardens and then again when it is time to harvest. Other than that we are not in much of a rush. There are fences to mend, buildings to upgrade, lawns to mow and general upkeep. Some cooking if possible, if you are not a good cook, you might be when you leave. We can also teach you to run the tractor, lawnmowers etc.

    They will have their own bedroom and a shared bathroom. The house is old and not fancy. Part of the chores will be a few renovations in it, and some outbuildings. There is wifi and cel service.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a rowboat, kayaks. Fishing if they like or just cruise down the lake. There are many lakes. We can drive them around and show them the sites. If, they have a valid drivers licence and qualify, they might be able to use one of the cars. (Absolutely no drinking and driving allowed). We have awesome neighbours and someone is always up to something.
