About the Farm:
We have a ranch with approximately 50 beef cows and their calves, several horses, a miniature donkey, a goat, a sheep, two llamas and numerous cats and dogs.
We especially looking for someone or a couple who'd like to spend some time here from the end of October onward. If you don't have your own vehicle, we are able to provide pick ups from Cold Lake if you travel with the Red Arrow bus or Lloydminster or Saskatoon airports if you fly in.

In winter all our animals are in the home yard and you can help us feed and check on the animals and spring is our calving season - always a busy time but fun time.
In summer you can help us with hauling the hay bales (round bales) from the field to the home yard (using tractors and bale wagons), farmyard maintenance, vaccinate calves & do other veterinary work. Also help with the younger horses. In the fall we bale square bales and get ready for the winter.

Other jobs include making, checking and mending fences, general yard tidy up. We also would like you to help with general household duties including cooking as part of our family. If you are mechanically inclined we have a heated well equipped farm shop and we always have machinery which needs maintenance and repairs.

There are lots of opportunities to ride horses (either english or western) especially from Spring through Fall where we are often out riding everyday. If you're a competent rider, it's also possible to ride in winter but be aware that some days can be too cold and sometimes the ground is too slippery.
Throughout the year there are plenty of opportunities to go on cattle drives as many of our neighbours also use horses to move cattle. We also go on trail rides, some of which last several days when we go to the provincial park which is an hour away from the ranch. We also have a boat and fishing equipment you can use.
There's lots of wildlife in the area and you may get to see a coyote, bear, elk, moose, fox, hummingbirds or beaver.

There are lots of events and activities going on throughout the year in Meadow Lake and the surrounding areas including rodeos, chuckwagons, parades, hockey matches, sled dog races. An International driverís license would be an asset.

Btw, we do answer everybody that writes (except spam) so if you don't hear from us, chase us up. I'm not 100% computer savvy and with my laptop out of action, I'm trying to answer everything on the phone.
