Learn how a farm family lives out the 'small farm' dream in Southern Ontario and how to grow your own organic food year round, even in the winter. We are a Christian family with young children and invite you to join in our family life and farm work.
With our 5th baby born in July, there will be lots of opportunities to help in our family and farm this year!
There is always lots of interesting things to do on a farm! Whether it's maintaining the large market garden, hunting for fresh, free-range eggs, taste testing an apple, purple ripe and warm from the sunshine, or chatting with one of our many interesting customers at our store.
With 5 young children full of questions about life the world there is never a dull moment (and they also offer a great opportunity for you to learn English as they love to hear simple stories over and over)!
We have a very basic, simple 2 room camping trailer for sleeping and you are welcome in the house during the day. Join us in our spacious old farmhouse kitchen for preparing and enjoying (mostly) organic meals and snacks.
We are within walking distance to the park, shops and library of Brussels,ON. There is no public transit but we are willing to drive workawayers who stay and help for more than 2 weeks to a local site or two. A short drive to Lake Huron. About 1.5 hour from Toronto.
As a family with young children we would require that you don't smoke/abuse alcohol and use respectful language. No LGBQ applications please. We go to church on Sunday and invite you to come along.
