  • Description


    We run an off grid homestead. In the early spring we start getting the animals we raise for food. We live on 80 acres of bush land with our closest neighbours being 2 kilometres away. We have a well for water but use propane, solar and wood for heat. We grow a garden for fresh vegetables and canning for winter. There is a main cabin on the property that we live in that has an outdoor kitchen accessible for everyone. There is a cabin that that would be all yours to stay in. There is plenty of wildlife and beautiful trails. Very peaceful and quiet with huge trees everywhere.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are lots of trails and we do have quads and side by side. The closest town is 10 minutes away and there are lots of historical sites close by. We try to live a simple life and try to keep things as clean as possible. We have 2 dogs and a cat that have full run of the homestead to help keep wildlife away. We enjoy evening fires under the stars and using the quadding trails regularly. Work needs to be done but play and relaxing time is important too.
