  • Description

    Description

    Diversified HORSE-POWERED farm. We grow vegetable, herb and flower SEEDS on 1.5 acres. That is the commercial part of the operation. It is a NEW farm, located 35 mins form Victoriaville and 1h from Quebec City. Ideal for those who are looking to start their own someday, as you will get the chance to see and experiment what it's like to manage a new and growing agricultural business.

    Workwayers are welcomed to bring their own projects, ideas, visions and creativity to the space. Household chores are definitely considered work. 30 hours a week/5 days a week is what I'm expecting. 3 weeks is the minimum lenght of stay, but I'm open!

    There are a number of other organic farms within a 15 km radius. There is a market garden, an orchard, a medicinal plant operation and more! I tend to visit these friends regularly and you're welcomed to join for some farmer's fun :)

    Work is diverse and can be adapted to the person's interests. If farming is not your thing but cooking is, cool! If animals are not your thing but building and repairing stuff is, even cooler! If you have a project that you'd like to put into place, let's find money to make it happen. I am looking for 30 hours/week, 5 days/week.

    There is definitely a roommate vibe around the house since it's pretty small. You're also welcomed to use the trailer if you want more privacy. I try not to work on the weekends, but if there is a time sensitive harvest and sun is shining I might ask you to help out. You are under no obligations on weekends. I can give you rides on occasions, you can also borrow a bike, go out and explore!
