    Description

    Hello Workawayers,
    With the concerns we all have in working to reduce the transmission of Covid-19, and in looking to reduce the possibility for contracting Covid 19 through outside visits to our homes, we have decided to host only Couples to stay with us for this season. Thanks for viewing our profile - safe travels and stay healthy.

    Audrey and I have two houses, one in the mountain community of Canmore our primary home and a second in the Alberta foothills, our Millarville farm. We spend time between our properties and there is always lots to do at the farm, repairing fences and looking after livestock, cleaning up the wood lot and gardening. We therefore prefer that our workawayers take their relaxation time and days off while staying at Canmore. There is still lots to do at our Canmore home, daily chores such as house keeping, yard work and general maintenance.
    Canmore has a great outdoors community , with lots of outdoor activities hiking, climbing, canoeing, snowshoeing, skiing, and beautiful mountain scenery, there are lots of summer and winter activities. Millarville is beautiful farm land with a year around stream , we have large raised garden beds and livestock to learn about. There are great farmers markets, biking, and hiking in the area as well.

    We just built a new barn at Millarville and did a lot of the work ourselves, carpentry, electrical, insulation, etc. We also have new work projects of a similar but much smaller nature. We have a large garden that needs the normal care spring sowing (May, June), weeding (July, August), and harvesting ( August, Sept, Oct) gardening does not start until May and finishes in October. We also manage our tree lot with chain sawing lumber, and cutting firewood. While in Canmore there is less to do but we do have yard work, house work and chores around the house, and some painting and deep cleaning.

    We normally start our day with a good breakfast and then have one or two short breaks for refreshments and snacks during the day with a large meal at the end of the work day. We try and work extra hours at Millarville and then provide our workaway guests with more time off in Canmore. Both of our properties offer lots to do, but Canmore is world famous for its beauty and outdoor activities. Summer, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, site seeing. Winter offers both great down hill and cross country sking, snowshoeing, wildlife photography, and more site seeing. Our home at Millarville has our horses, biking, hiking, and fishing in the stream. There are also farmers markets and three lovely small communities within a ten minute drive.
