  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is changing and moving into Insect farming and organic nutrient inputs. We run a direct farm food business with a small garden and recently moved our small dairy to a neighbor. We have some events in the summer to prepare for and we have beef cattle and a small flock of chickens

    its been busy and with two kids and a wife that works part time makes it a challenge. helping watch children and prepare food at times may be the easiest way for us to accomplish task most efficiently

    We are open to workaway stays starting in April.

    Aside from the help on the farm, that itself is abundant and rich in opportunities to learn, one will be in an awesome part of Ontario on an awesome farm. Both of us are from Toronto and have done a fair bit of traveling and can appreciate the things about this country and place that may be of interest to people from abroad
