*** Accepting helpers for the 'post-virus' time ***
*** Right now I have a great helper team planning to stay for quite a while ***

I welcome you to stay on a horse and hobby farm!
Here you can enjoy peace and tranquility, live in plain country side with adorable rescue animals, pick up a lot of skills, and live out your creativity.

You should be experienced for at least one of the following tasks:

- Taking care of horses and exercising them
- Walking and training the dogs (we have agility equipment)
- Feeding the animals (horses, dogs, llamas, alpacas, cats)
- Heating the house with wood stoves
- Healthy, vegetarian cooking
- Small building projects (if you are interested)
- Helping me maintaining vintage tractors and cars (if you are interested)
- Making this place more ecofriendly, like creating a bee garden

This little paradise also lives from the dreams and experiences of volunteers from all over the world.

All food is included. All dietary needs will be met. We cook mostly vegetarian meals. Sometimes also vegan, if there is a vegan person among us.

There are usually 4 - 5 helpers here, mostly with complementary skill sets, so you can learn from each other as well.

I am happy to teach you driving tractors and pickup trucks, and using all kinds of tools, if needed for the job.
There is an awesome, fully equipped workshop.

I can help you with improving your English.
And I will show you how you can fulfill your Canadian dream!

You can enjoy here:

- Two horses to ride, if you are experienced. There are nice trails around the property! As well, there are round pens and a training circuit
- Your own very comfortable room
- Large fully (!) equipped kitchen. Helpers taught each other their national recipes!
- Hot tub under the stars (or in a snow storm)
- A very nice fire place and BBQ
- TV/video area with tons of DVD's
- Fitness equipment, sauna and table tennis
- Bicycles and canoe/kayaks
- Day trips to Ottawa (30 mins away)

Looking forward to hearing from you!!
Hans

PS: This place is only for very lovely, caring, motivated, experienced, organized and mature people.

Absolutely no drugs, cannabis, nothing of that sort! A glass of wine or beer here and there is ok.
You may smoke cigarettes outside. I mean cigarettes, these things with tobacco inside.

If you are internet-addicted - like so many people these days - this is not your place!
