We are a rural homestead style farm with horses, cows, pigs and chickens looking for help with all aspects of farm life, animal care, field work, house work and cooking. We also have a small year round horseback riding program specializing in "natural horsemanship". Accomplished riders and horsemen are welcome! The farm is 40km from downtown Whitehorse and we are surrounded by wilderness. If you seek a simple life in a beautiful landscape we would love to hear from you.

We are grateful for help with all aspects of farm operations, field work, house work and animal care. We prefer to have helpers who can stay at least 3-4 weeks as it takes some time to learn the routines. Our life on the ranch is full of hard work. Taking pleasure in working physically with your body and enjoying solitude would be necessary to have a good time here. We have very simple accommodations and no running water in the cabins. We use outhouses for toilets. There is a pump house with shower and laundry facilities a short walk from the cabins. Internet can be accessed in our main cabin. We ask for an average of 35 hours of help per week in exchange for accommodation, food and internet.

Help could be firewood, cleaning (indoors and outdoors), feeding and watering animals, fixing and clearing fence lines, picking weeds and sticks from fields and other activities, both inside and outside. If you have special skills we are happy to learn about them. We are delighted if you are an expert horse rider or have knowledge of carpentry, farming or farm animal care, but if you are interested we are also willing to teach you how you can help us.
