We are a developing a family business in tourism and a private farm. We live on a farm property south of Whitehorse, off the grid, just solar and generated power and no running water for now. We live a simple life style (cabins only), no much modern comfort. You should enjoy physical work outside and outdoor activities. We provide accommodation and good homemade food in exchange for 5 hours work on our farm 5 days a week. Activities like canoeing, hiking, fishing and horseback riding are not for granted. It's a bonus for hard working volunteers. To join us on trips is mostly possible, but it's not work, more a benefit during your time off to enjoy the Yukon wilderness and to give you some good experience in addition.
Like the remoteness, simple life with very few modern comfort. Enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. Learn more about your personal skills and yourself.
The helpers want to do partly hard physical work (peeling logs, building and repair fences, cleaning fields from wood, cutting firewood, feeding horses and more). To have some experience in carpentry, farming and maintenance is helpful but not nessecary. A good work ethic and focus on what needs to be done is way more important. Become part of a project. Housesitting sometimes.
