We are a married couple who have a small farm with a few cattle a horse and a ton of cats. In the spring we get a few piglets to raise. Might try some chickens this year too. We have a couple milk cows and raise calves with their milk. We are very small scale and geared towards a homestead way of life, trying to grow as as much of our food as possible.
We do a a fair sized garden every year and try to preserve the harvest for winter months.
Our 26 acres lies on a dead end road so its quiet and away from the city. I really enjoy the peace and quiet.
In my spare time I enjoy taking my horse out for a nice trail ride, reading, playing my farm game and hanging out with my pets.

Our animals are part of the family and treated with respect and compassion. Would be great for those who want to keep things simple and away from high tech hustle
Looking for someone to help care for the animals which include, dairy cows and calves,horses, pigs, cats, and possibly chickens and sheep.
Help would be needed in building pens, animal runs, corrals and fences and helping in the garden. Fences and corrals would be post and wire or post and rail. Small animal runs would be frame and mesh.

Our farm is located 25 km from the nearest town. The closest city is about 30 min away and the province capital is a little over an hour away.
There are a few good swimming lakes in the area. There's also lakes and rivers for fishing as well.
Locally there are stores to get basic needs and groceries and a trip to the city for other items can be done.
Our town and the closest city also have movie theaters
Mountain towns of Banff and jasper are are about 3 and 5 hrs from us respectively.
