I like meeting people, and especially travelers that are passionate about agriculture and country living.
I have enjoyed my own volunteering and interning experiences on different farms & ranches in Canada and USA a lot, and I've learnt a great deal through them, so I'd like to offer people similar opportunities!

This Ranch is nestled in the beautiful Ottawa River Valley, right where the rich farmlands of the valley give way to the laurentian shield. The southern part of the ranch is mostly pasture, with the northern part reaching into more rocky terrain that is typical for the laurentians. The land borders Long Lake, with beautiful emerald water, that can be used for swimming etc. Gatineau park is just a few miles east, and Ottawa/Gatineau is approx. 80 km away. We graze cattle, goats and horses and have pastured pigs. In the future we may add poultry and sheep. The aim is to produce wholesome, healthy meats. Currently the operation is in the start-up phase. Tasks would include checking, watering, and moving cattle, caring for pigs and horses, brush clearing, fencing, and some small building projects around the yard.
This growing season 2020 there will be more fence building, and also building a horse facility incl. horse shelter for horse boarding.
