WE are taking a break from hosting helpers for 2017. We will resume in 2018.

This is a small farm located on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. We grow vegetables, herbs and raspberries, which we sell at a local farmers markets and through a weekly share program. 2016 is our fifth growing season.

Daily tasks for helpers may include: tending the gardens, harvesting for the farmer's market or weekly vegetable boxes, watering the greenhouses, and other jobs around the farm. If you have any special skills let us know for example carpentry, web design, or photography.We may have a project for you.
There is walking trail on the property and a small beach on the Saint John River with a bonfire pit. There are three kayaks which helpers may use to explore the area. Uptown Saint John is just a ten minute drive or 20 minute bike ride away. There are many attractions for new visitors to the city such as the City Market and the New Brunswick Museum. We'd be happy to show you around town or let you explore on your own!

We have 1 room available in our home with a double futon, a computer and TV. We have wifi available. We like to cook and although we are not vegetarians we can accommodate vegans and vegetarians. We welcome helpers May through to October. June, August and September are the busiest months.

Some tips on travelling to Saint John:

If you are travelling east from Quebec without your own vehicle, the bus (or rideshare) is your best option. The train does not come to Saint John. We are not able to pick up helpers in Fredericton or Moncton.

If you are travelling from Digby, Nova Scotia area, there is a ferry that takes you to Saint John and we can pick you up at the ferry station.

Flights to Saint John from other parts of Canada can be expensive. If you are in BC, please look into the cost of travelling east before making inquiries. Most helpers who visit our farm do so as part of a tour of other farms in the maritime provinces.

I hope that helps. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

We look forward to the 2016 growing season and meeting new helpers!
