    Description

    Voulez-vous connaître c'est quoi un élevage de bisons? Seulement à une heure de la ville de Québec, dans un village touristique, nous élevons au delà de 100 bisons. Nous vendons la viande de bison et d'autres produits connexes. Il y a toujours quelque chose à faire. On peut avoir besoin de gens pour aider dans les champs, le jardin, dans la boutique ou même dans la maison. Notre clientèle est pour la plupart francophone mais on utilise l'anglais comme langue de communication également.

    If you are interested in learning more about bison and sharing this with people, then check us out! We have over 100 bison one hour east of Quebec city. We sell bison meat and other bison products. We are currently looking for help in the boutique, greeting visitors, talking about our operation and the qualities of bison meat and selling our products. But since we are heading in a quieter tourist time then we need help doing whatever around the farm. There's always something to do. We have a lovely dog and several chickens. We provide room and board in our home with private rooms. We have internet access. We live in a very touristic community with many local craftspeople, a local brewery and winery, superb restaurants, next to the St-Lawrence river. Bike trails. A great escape from the city life! Bilingual home. We are looking for honest, good workers who will be asked to do tasks according to their skills.

This is a bilingual home so workers can improve their English or French skills. This is a beautiful area so travellers can enjoy the river, the mountains and of course the fall colours.
