We are a smallfamily of three homesteading in beautiful Northern Ontario. Although we have run ourfarm as a business in the past, as of 2017we are no longer operating as a commercial farm. Instead we are homesteading and growing food for our family and friends. We have a largevegetable garden, a young orchard, large berry patch, egg laying chickens, sheep, a family cow, a horse and a pony.

There's lots of work to be done on the farm and we would love some help! Work could involve daily care of livestock (feeding, watering, collecting eggs), garden work (weeding, adding compost, planting and picking vegetables), cleaning out barns, construction projects, fencing and painting.

We live in the bush - home to black bears, moose, deer and lots of other wildlife - including mosquitos! It is a large property (150+ acres) on a quiet road with very distant neighbours. We are surrounded by beautiful, wild forests and Canadian shield rock, with about 10 cleared acres of pasture and gardens.

We have our own private lake for swimming (with a dock!) and lots to do if you like the outdoors. We are about 25km south of downtown Sudbury, and we regularly go into town (especially on weekends).

Helpers generally work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. All food is included and meals are usually shared with the family (2 adults and 1 child). We eat food grown on thefarm as much as possible and enjoy making food from scratch. There is a nice private living space for helpers with a double bed and private bathroom. 1 energetic dog and 1 cat live in the house with us, so this situation would not be suitable for someone with allergies to dogs and/or cats. Non-smokers only please!
