This has to be the foundation for any real lasting positive change on the Earth. All living things will flourish if we will learn the reality to one of the songs that we sing..."

Description

Our Farm is an exciting place where people of all ages can learn about sustainable organic agriculture, food processing and cooking, and living in community! We do all kinds of things here, some of which are baking, painting, sewing, building, running a busy cafe, and building a nice addition for it! blending and packaging tea, working with metal...(machine shop), gardening, lots of talking and laughing, (a little crying, too), teaching children, singing and dancing, making soap, cheese, and spinning honey, Growing sprouts, cooking healthy delicious food for each other, taking care of insects (bees) and animals, playing music together, making jam, making HAY etc. etc. We have come to see that people are made to love, and that is what we are learning to do, take care of things and people! That's when we are the happiest and freest.

There ARE options to being reduced to a mere consumer! Be strong and courageous, Humans do not exist to fuel a machine that destroys living things. We are not fodder! Come consider A Healthy Alternative!

My name is Jeff, my friends call me Qazaq. I coordinate our volunteer programs here at the farm. I am very happily married with three amazing children (ages 14, 12, 9). We warmly invite you to come learn with us!

We live together with our friends and family in community! We have several families and single people all living together year round. We'd love to have you join us!

We have the most amazing life on the planet, and we'd love to share it with you.
Our life together is based on love and forgiveness, following Messiah.

We are located just outside the city of Winnipeg, the capitol of Manitoba. There is no public transport here, but we do have regular rides to and from the city.


We have a day of rest every Saturday to enjoy our company and the farm. We generally do not travel on that day.


Of course, if you have any questions, concerns or needs, feel free to ask. We are very interested in meeting whatever needs come up, so please let us know. We are here for you.
