We are a Warmblood horse breeding and training family farm. One of our goals is to produce top quality horses for international competition in jumping, dressage and three day events. Our main farming activities include feeding, training, breeding and caring for our herd of 150 horses. To view current pictures of our horses life here, go to our Touchstone Farm Facebook page.

We have chosen to be as close to nature as we can and build as naturally as possible. We are therefore a rustic facility. We have a small portable saw mill for sawing our own wood. We are endeavoring to organically produce some of our own food. To this aim, we also have goats, chickens, a cow & calves and a garden. When there is enough milk production, we make yogurt and cheese.

We need help year round with the livestock, training and caring for the horses, pasture management, fencing, landscaping, gardening, meal preparation, housekeeping, building construction and repairs, cutting lumber and firewood, mechanical repairs etc. Winter is a unique experience on Canadian farms as we care for our livestock and keep warm ourselves. Volunteers have stayed with us for two weeks to one year. We accept people as part of our family which gives people a chance to fully experience our farm lifestyle. We work together as a team sharing and taking on responsibility as people learn and share their skills.

A few members of our extended family speak German and French as well as our first language of English. Many of our volunteers have enjoyed sharing their musical talent by playing our grand piano or guitar.
