My husband and I purchased this farm four years ago. We have about 50 Sheep, Lab dog (Oscar) and two cats. We have 12 Chickens. Large Garden of 1000 Rasyberry plants and other vegatables.. We like to do the Bio-Dynamic gardening with R. Steiner from Austria. Perth, Ontario is very similar to Perth, Scotland at lot of stone buildings. We live 15 min from the town of Perth and one hour West of Ottawa, the capital city for Canada. The work could be painting, gardening,haying, watering the animals and feeding the animals hay twice daily. We get up with the Roasters and go to bed with the Chickens . This is a very busy farm and can be a lot of fun but also a lot of work. We expect six hours per day for work and two days off per week for you to travel around the area. We would like folks who can speak a fair amount of English because it is very hard to give instructions when the other person does not understand and safety is very important on a farm and also that the animals get the correct amount of feed. If you are from out side Canada we expect you to acquire medical insurance. Please email if you have any further questions. Best Regards Bill & Shirley
