    Mike and I (Francine) purchased this land and fell completely in love with it. The neighbours are family. The farm has evolved since we took over but we need help to get it to a dream place. We like to work hard but also enjoy our time with great people. We are family oriented.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We mostly speak English at the house but I also speak French and Spanish. You could benefit on finding out how to prepare rabbit, lamb, geese and chicken. I am all around in the kind of food we eat. Everything is homemade from the farmstead. A variety of expertise could be picked up from our farmyard. You could discover how to make soap to learn what herb to pick in the land and what to do with it. You have to like the country and not worry about getting your hands dirty.

    Welcome to our small hobby farm! We live on a 100 acres in Eganville near a lake in Ontario, Canada. We produce healthy all-natural food and we raise livestock for our family and friends (not commercially). We breed sheep, geese, rabbits and chickens. Each type of animal requires specialized knowledge and management. We would like to integrate a permaculture approach to growing eatables and medicines in our forests. We are in the process of putting up new infrastructure, so workawayers with some building skills would be more than welcome. We will construct a porch, a shelter, a greenhouse and renovate our cold room.

    We welcome help for the month of April until the end of October. Now and then, we need someone to look after the livestocks in the winter. The main help is at the farm, caring for the stocks, helping in the garden, construction project, maintenance of the barns, the small and bigger equipment.

    It could range from:
    Building barn doors
    Farm fencing
    Organic gardening using permaculture concepts
    Cutting Firewood
    Food preservation (fermentation, canning..)
    Animal maintenance
    Yard clean-up and maintenance
    Deck construction and more
    Start raising bees
    Planning and building outdoor oven + smoker

    We desire someone active, non-smoker, animal-friendly, eager to help and learn. Some knowledge in gardening, raising animals, pruning trees and building project is necessary.

    I also speak Spanish and understand some Italian. I love different languages.

  • Alojamiento


    We could host one or two workawayers at a time as we have plenty of room in our century-old homestead that is separated from our main house. You have all facilities provided to you. The meals could be with us or at the farmhouse. We usually eat outside or in the screen-in-porch when the weather collaborates.
