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.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
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
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
