    April-September 2023: building Log Cabin


    We are in our 6th 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.

    About us:
    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.
    Brandie is the Queen B here - she lives this space, crafting, building permaculture garden's, preserving food, and taking morning strolls with the animals. She works from home & cares for many.
    Éamon (15) is busy with highschool & home on weekends. He is an unusually caring, enthusiastic, and engaged human that we love dearly.
    Zion (21) is getting married this winter. He is a kind fun human with great ingenuity and resourcefulness. He was the main motivator to get this farm + we are grateful.

    This space: will be used for gatherings. Argicultural education through living an oldschool farm experience, stargazing, art classes, prenatal education, weekend picnics, nature / farm schools, creating traditional gourmet food and farm fresh goodies.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    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).

    Autres infos...

    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..
