Hello Workawayers !
One day at a gathering, I told my friend of all the ideas we have for our tiny house homestead and how that mean we have more jobs that need to be accomplished then we have capable bodies, or time etc... this is how she mentioned to me that I needed to look into workaway !
You see, we are a family of 4 who relocated to northern Ontario to land on the land that has had my husband Justin's name on it for a very long time. So July 2016, we moved to the forest and settled into a 26 ft yurt with our two kids and pets. over the past five years of us being here, the land has evolved a lot! We built a tiny house on wheels as a sleep bunkie, installed a water well, added livestock to the homestead, built a garden and now we are building a new house !
some of the projects we need help with is:
forest clearing with brush cutters and chainsaws
tending to the icelandic sheep, chickens and rabbits, cats and dogs
preparing icelandic sheep fibres for spinning and felting and sales
some construction work on the new house
assisting with the children and their school and exercise routines.
when we are not busy keeping up with the farm, we are out on the lake fishing and swimming and enjoying nature.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Being at the Farm you will be able to experience the yurt life in beautiful Northern Ontario !
We can share knowledge on hunting, hobby farming, rocket stoves, organic gardening, foraging, canning, yoga, weaving, spinning, livetock husbandry meditation & the list goes on !
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
As of right now, we are really needing someone who can assist with small daily tasks of gardening and livestock care. installing fencing, clering the woods, pulling weeds ect. any little help will be appreciated!
Thank you so much in advance for all you consideration and help.
We have a camper trailer that has been converted into a sauna/ sleep bunkie.
*️️️️️️️️toilet is an outhouse, which we will need to dig a new hole to accommodate more people on the homestead.
Our town is rural, but the big city of sudbury is an hour away. When we arent working or hunting, we are usually eating and resting and enjoying each others company by the fire, playing music, doing yoga, exploring nature or purifying in the sauna !

must have no prey drive and must be friendly
(max 25 hours/week- 5 days) Evenings after 4 pm until sundown and weekends when justin is home and working in the bush is when he needs a hand with cutting trees. If your a carpenter, building the bunkie could potentially be done during the day while just
