  • Description


    We live on a small patch of land that includes an orchard, garden, 2 acre field in barley with laying hens. Close to nature trail, beautiful beach and Confederation Trail. Bikes on site, basketball nets for your use along with other recreational equipment. Lovely cabin in the orchard could be used as rough living space during the Summer. Historic property of Glenaladale is in our backyard. There's work all year round so please check us out.
    There's a small cabin that needs interior work before it is habitable during the summer months - perfect location for someone who wants to rough it but this is totally optional. Does this interest you? We'd love someone with carpentry & design skills. We welcome Workaways who have all their vaccines.
    In the aerial view of Tracadie - my house has the rust coloured roof painted flower pot orange to the left of the Church.
    No Pets please. Excellent internet access.
