We are in our 5th year farming!!
We are former travellers setting deeper roots - into a beautiful place. 18 acres of land, a barn, animals, creative open farmhouse, nestled by a little river, and 50 mins. to Ottawa Canada.

Eamon's (age 14) - Fun loveable intelligent human. Cares for Chickens, Chicks, and Eggs (not sure which came first). Loves playing games, piano, drama, reading, basketball, and swimming.
Elmir works over full time hours so is not always available to do the farm duties. He is very passionate about all of our projects future and present and joins in as he can! He is skilled and enjoys streamlining processes.

We host in a community style. Our experiences run deep from our travels and our guests can expect to be made part of the family (and extended family). We can lead you to both city tourist sites (Ottawa) and the country life of the area. Both of our boys are outgoing and we all freely share what we know while continuing to learn. Brandie and the children are bilingual French / English but mostly we speak English at home. We often have people over. There are strong creative juices to soak in and lots of crafts to try.
Bring clothes for all weather and a head light if you have one. Expect to get dirty and work hard (there are always jobs on the go and others waiting to be done).

Comfortable room with a real bed in the house or camping outside - your choice.
Meditation / yoga room.
With a house full of foodies - meals will be homemade family style collective efforts (often farm to table).
We will have a set time for late breakfast and dinner - Otherwise food will be left to help yourself.
We are adaptable to dietary needs. We eat meat (just not pork) but many of our meals are vegetarian.
Feel welcome to cook for us!
Our home is under an hour from downtown Ottawa and we go to the city a couple times a week. We can pick our guests up form Aylmer Quebec as there is no public transit here. At the farm, expect a slower life pace that somehow always has motion. Let some time slide while enjoying a slow breakfast, petting a donkey, resting in the tree house, visiting a nearby beach on the Ottawa River.. We can hike Gatineau Park, visit other farms..
