We have a small homestead (~40 acres) with many different animals (horses, cows, poultry, bees, plus a dog and cat). There are perennial gardens, as well as fruit trees and fields. There is always lots of work with the animals and the gardens, as well as processing wood for the furnace that heats the house in the winter.
We try to use organic and ecologically friendly practices whenever possible and to keep chemical usage to a minimum.
A lot of the food we eat is grown by ourselves.
The farm is very close to Ottawa (45 minutes) as well as to Quebec and the US border (approximately 2 hours), thus offering a lot of opportunities to explore and vacation as part of your volunteering visit.
We are always excited to get new volunteers, but please note that you must be 19 or older (although we do occasionally make exceptions).
Note also that we only commit to people approximately one month in advance, especially during the summer, since many of our projects are decided only shortly in advance.
One other important consideration concerns diet:
We do not offer a vegetarian diet, because our diet uses things produced on our farm as much as possible, which includes meat. If you are a strict Vegetarian or Vegan then our place will likely not work for you.
