Stewart (age 62, retired teacher) and Nancy, soon to retire, are a friendly couple who welcome single women, men or couples to their farm home in a beautiful region near Owen Sound, Ontario that is 2.5 hours northwest of Toronto. Stewart has been a helper with, has lived in Europe and speaks English and French while Nancy speaks English. We have a modern ancestral stone house with 4 bedrooms. Our 3 adult children do not live here but they do visit on occasion as do other friends and family members. We have pets in the house (a cat and a dog). Guests will have a private room in the home, wifi, full access to the home including a shared bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi tub.

We expect an average of 4 hours per day, 5 days a week however sometimes we work longer one day and take other days to relax or to explore the natural beauty of region including Bruce National Park. Outside, we are looking for help in the garden, cutting trees for firewood, with gathering and piling the wood, small repair jobs, various other tasks, maintenance of buildings and in creating and improving trails through the forests on our farm.
Inside, we need help with cooking, especially the evening meal, and other various tasks such as painting, cleaning. No experience is necessary, just a positive and willing attitude. A good sense of humour is always welcome! You may stay for two weeks or longer. In return you will receive free lodging, full access to amenities in the home, ample free time, a friendly and relaxed environment, and help/transportation to discover cultural events, the quaint towns, and beautiful parks, lakes, and sandy beaches in our area of which we are very proud.
