Audrey and I have two homes, one in the mountain community of Canmore and a second in the Alberta foothills. We spend time between our properties and there is always lots to do farming, repairing fences and looking after livestock. We prefer that our workawayers take their relaxation time while in Canmore but there are also chores to be done while we are at that home. house keeping, yard work and horse paddock maintenance.
Canmore has great hiking, sking, and beautiful mountains, lots of summer and winter activities. Millarville is beautiful farm land with a year around stream , we have large raised garden beds and livestock to learn about. There are great markets, biking, and hiking in the area.

Audrey and I have travelled through Europe, South America and much of North America. Our two sons are grown up one lives in Scotland and the second is married with twin son and daughter. We both love meeting new people and sharing our and their life experiences and skills with each other. I have been a volunteer leader with the Calgary Stampede for more than 35 years and love helping people learn and contribute.
We are building a new barn at Millarville and doing a lot of the work ourselves. Carpentry, electrical, insulation, etc. We also have a large garden that needs the normal care sowing, weeding, and harvesting gardening does not start until May and finishes in October. . We also manage our tree lot with chain sawing lumber, and cutting firewood. While in Canmore there is less to do but we do have some yard work, house work and a small horse paddock that will require cleaning, and painting.
While staying in Canmore you stay in our home in a private bedroom with it own bathroom. At our Millarville property we have a guest bedroom and bath, an RV with multiple bedrooms and bathroom, and in the new barn/shop there will be a two bedroom suite with bathroom. All meals are normally prepared and eaten together with our family. There will always be plenty of food at every meal.
We normally start our day with a good breakfast and the have one or two short breaks for refreshments and snacks during the day with a large meal at the end of the work day. We try and work extra hours at Millarville and then provide you with more time off in Canmore. Both of our properties offer lots to do, but Canmore is world famous for its beauty and outdoor activities. Summer, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, site seeing. Winter offers both great down hill and cross country sking, snowshoeing, wildlife photography, and more site seeing. Our home at Millarville has our horses, biking, hiking, and fishing in the stream. There are also farmers markets and three lovely small communities within a ten minute drive.
