We have a hobby farm called Tamarac, which is one hour away from Fredericton, the capital city of New Brunswick. We are a "youngish" retired couple who are enjoying revitalizing our farm and taking care of our horses. The farm is 200 acres a combination of forest and cleared pastures with a barn, out buildings and an indoor riding arena. There are also trails through our property and other properties next to us that the horses can be ridden on. We have been gradually renovating and restoring the buildings on the property as well as expanding the pastures for the horses. Each year we have guests from Europe who stay over the summer months riding and caring for the horses. For those who are interested in horses we are looking for experienced horse people as we recently added 2 unbroken haflingers who have redefined our herd making things quite interesting. What we need is a bit of help more the DYI projects. If you are independent and you have experience with a chainsaw we have trees that need to come down... this would be enormous help for us. If you have carpentry or mechanic skills there are different projects which could use your assistance. On a hobby farm there are always several projects on the go so there are lots of things to do.

We enjoy cooking and love to bake…maybe you would like to partake in creating a great meal…this would be wonderful. Good food and conversation is a great way to wind down at the end of a day full of activity. The two languages of the house are German and English. We have a pool for cooling down in the summer and free internet access to keep in touch. There is a bike, horses, and a quad. When you are not helping out here on the farm New Brunswick offers many opportunities to enjoy nature and it's coastline. Hiking, camping, and whale watching are all available. Quebec to the west and Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia to the east are close enough to take time to visit as well. We would love to have you come and enjoy Tamarac.
