Rural environment of 60 acres in the beautiful Mulmur Hills within an hour drive from Toronto or the waters of Georgian Bay. We offer a warm and welcoming family atmosphere of typical Canadian country living, with a little European twist of Swiss and German. We will share our knowledge and love of our country and our modern and very self sufficient home. This is a perfect place to experience active living in a natural setting.

General physical work includes fence setup/repair, grass cutting, gardening and yard work, possibly wood cutting and splitting, some household chores, and helping with a bed & bale in the summer.
