    Descripción

    Our family ranch is situated close to the Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba. We raise cattle (about 60) and Tennessee Walking horses (about 30) and offer as soon as weather permits trail rides on the ranch and into the National Park. We added 2 cabins onto our property and affiliated with Hostelling International Canada to add accommodation to our offer since 2015.

    Our 1100 acres are spread out including rolling hills, woods and little lakes.
    We, the owner Thomas and Ilse run the ranch with the help of son Ray (who still works full time elsewhere) and his wife Valerie. Thomas and Ray are certified guides with the Riding Mountain National Park, Ray and Valerie train as well our horses. Daughter Karina and family pitch in occasionally, living close by, and our 3 grandsons bring additional life to the outfit, when around.

    We value nature, have a garden and love local products. In the summer months Ilse is also engaged with helping at the local community market. Work depends on the seasons, with summer and fall being the busiest one.

    Over the past years we have had regularly volunteers during the summer months. Our origins lie in Germany, but we are proud Canadians since a long time. Languages spoken are German, French and English.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You love horseback riding or are interested to learn? There will be free and plenty opportunities for you.

    Depending on the season, you can learn about gardening and harvesting and the ranch operation.

    The area offers lot of historic sites, lot of lakes for fishing (gear can be borrowed, license has to be bought) and some for swimming. Summer events in the area consist of rodeos, outdoor live music events, fairs and potentially some powwows, as we do have a First Nation community close by.
    The National Park with its town site Wasagaming is in the summer a hot spot for tourist activity (about 50 min away from us).
    Become part of our family while here and meet guests from all over the world.

    Helping with cleaning and other household chores and maintaining the yard will be the main area, where a volunteer would be appreciated.
    As we have a large garden, gardening skills could come in very handy and might get you off the hook that way with cleaning for parts of the season.

    There are a few building/renovation projects, which we would look at tackling with the right volunteer and there is probably always something around that needs a painting

    Our day starts around 7:30 am with a usually leisurely breakfast. There are a few regular chores that need to be done each day..but the day to day activities differ and gets talked over at breakfast. We will make sure you have your days off (just not always on the weekend) and you are included in festivities, family activities and so on.

    We are out in the country side (15 minutes drive from nearest town). There is usually one extra vehicle available which can be borrowed from May to November to discover the area – having a drivers license and your own vehicle would though be ideal to be more independent. We can arrange for a pick up from Winnipeg airport or Brandon Air Shuttle bus if no vehicle.
