Welcome to the sunny and spacious Parkland area of Saskatchewan where you can see for miles/km in every direction. In the words of a German guest, "Mann kann sich nicht sattsehen, an diesem Himmel. Auch Licht und Farben sind unübertroffen sowie die klare und trockene Luft". We operate a mixed farm and Market Garden approximately 140km east of Saskatoon. Because our farm is near Lake Lenore, we have a beautiful view of the lake while we work in the garden. Occasionally, wild deer come wandering through the yard and garden. You can also see moose, coyotes, foxes, bald eagles, wild geese and ducks and many songbirds. The animals on our farm include cows, pigs, chickens, cats and a very friendly border collie dog, Chloe. We often share work, play and meals with our young grandchildren and their parents. We are looking for people who are willing to help in the garden with planting, weeding, mowing, harvesting, preparing for the Farmers' Market and anything else that needs doing. Help with meal preparation would be welcome. Help yourself to fresh strawberries, raspberries and saskatoons as they ripen. In your leisure time, you can go hiking, fishing, swimming or biking and come along on trips to nearby cities. We also have access to hi-speed internet. Accommodations are in our house AND in a self-contained apartment with full kitchen and bathroom. Full meals are served twice a day and are made from the food we grow. Breakfast is your choice. In addition, snacks are available any time. Work hours are usually 5 or 6 hours per day Monday to Friday. You can come along to the Farmers' Market on Saturdays if you wish and check out the little city of Humboldt.
