Our hobby farm is on the outskirts of Perth, a picture-perfect small town in Eastern Ontario. We are located 10 minutes from Perth, one hour West of Ottawa, one hour North of Kingston, three hours North of Toronto, and three hours from Montreal, Quebec. We have a small Scottish Highland Cattle fold, horses, and cats. We are a family of 3; mother, father and 5 month old baby! You must be an experienced horseback rider to ride our horses. :)

You will learn how to care for large animals like cattle and horses, and many other aspects of life on the family farm. If you are an experienced horse back rider, you may ride our horses. We are an easy-going young hobby farm and will try to provide you with a fun farm experience. In the summertime we sometimes have a campfire in the evenings to relax. The sunsets here are fantastic!
We do daily trips into town where you are welcome to come along. We are about a 15 minute drive away from a small provincial park where you can go swimming in the lake or for a picnic. We are located 10 minutes from Perth, one hour West of Ottawa, one hour North of Kingston, three hours North of Toronto, and three hours from Montreal, Quebec.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
Babysitting: We are self-employed and need help looking after our baby for a few hours, 2-4 days a week, while Kerry works on her laptop at the kitchen table.
Help around the house: Our guest help with house cleaning, cooking from time to time and baking if that is something you enjoy. Mowing the lawn on our riding lawn mower to help maintain the ticks is also requested.
Animal care: We are a small hobby farm with a small Scottish Highland Cattle fold that gives us our own organic beef to eat and we have two leisure riding horses (only experienced/intermediate horseback riders will be permitted to ride our horses). Animal care varies but would include things like; washing their water trough, feeding the barn cats, brushing the horses, removing noxious weeds from the pastures, etc.,
We are not a commercial operation, simply a small family farm looking for help on our lovely homestead! If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle, you have come to the right place.

At this time we will not be providing transportation. If we are driving to town which we do often, you may come along. Special trips may be considered if we have the time.
