  • Description


    I am an enthusiastic young adult starting a small farm in Musquodoboit Harbour, NS with my baby Husky Luna and mutt Sandy. I have been building up my farm the past 1.5 years with the help of some wonderful workawayers. I am hoping to finally have my grand opening this summer, start running farm tours, rescue more domestic animals and have a more consistent production cycle. I am aiming for more small scale methods of farming with lots of biodiversity and recycling of nutrients. I am not from a farming background and this has been a great adventure for me & I plan to continue (just need a little help) growing my farm. Right now, I am raising chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, geese, goats and boarding horses. I am also hope to do some gardening with the compost created by our animals this spring. I have been very lucky to have had wonderful workawayers the past year and want keep meeting new travellers and new people. I am looking for someone to add to my project; bring in new ideas, methods & enthusiasm.

    I live about 45 minutes outside of Halifax, NS, just along the ocean. There are lots of wonderful outdoor activities all around us (kayaking, swimming, hiking, climbing, etc.). I am from Quebec and moved to Nova Scotia to enjoy its beauty and tranquility. You would be part of the family as I share my dinners & hot tub times. When not working you can enjoy hammocking and hottubing while looking at the ocean. I also love playing board games, chatting or making fires.

  • Aide


    I am just starting my farm and looking for help during spring/summer/fall. Tasks will range from helping me take care of animals, gardening, putting up fences, cooking, engaging the community, etc. I currently have chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats, pigs and horses. The tasks will be extremely diverse as we are just starting out and the amount of work is quite high despite the small size. I do expect a hard worker and someone that is comfortable around animals and dealing with animal wastes.

  • Hébergement


    I am just finishing up a cabin we built especially for our workers. It is a separate building on the farm and overlooks the harbour. There are two lofted queen beds, a little kitchen, shower, outhouse and couch. It will be available for workawayers once we finish in (expecting mid February 2021). I also have a large finished basement with private bathroom/shower and queen bed. Meals are provided, however, help cooking would be appreciated. I try to eat as healthy as possible and aim to eat as much from what we produce. Once the cabin is done, I am planning to allow workawyers their space and privacy in the mornings/afternoons and in the evenings join me for a communal dinner & any internet needs (no internet at the cabin).
