We welcome people to come work and learn with us for long and short stays. We produce organic vegetables and pastrured eggs for a two hundred share CSA, farmer's market and for wholesale accounts. Helping new and aspiring farmers to learn new skills is a priority for us.

We are dedicated Christians that are committed to respecting all people. There is a lot of laughter and good times here, but it is not a place to party with drugs and alcohol.

We work with our paid interns from six thirty am till six pm with an hour and a half for lunch. Help X guests are expected to work with us for half the day.

The farm is located on the banks of a tidal river, half a KM from the beautiful Bay of Fundy. We have great biodiversity with extensive salt marshes, forest and fields on the farm. In addition to our three hectares of vegetables, we started planting food forrest trees in '94. Our Korean Stone pines trees are beginning give us pine nuts after 15 years!

We are one hour from Nova Scotia's capital city, Halifax. We deliver produce there three times a week and you would be welcome to come along.
