My farm is on a hill bordering the Cape Breton Highlands with wide views of the surrounding fields, forests and mountains. The comfortable, 150 year old farm house boasts all the mod cons (except for wifi but there is internet). There are two horses, a barn cat, a dog and one person, as well as an organic vegetable garden, a budding orchard, horse pasture, ponds, woodlot, natural forest, trails, streams and a waterfall. I ask people to work for 4 hours each morning in exchange for room and board and can accommodate most food preferences. Chores vary seasonally and can include:animal husbandry; tending greenhouse seedlings, planting, weeding, harvesting and processing organic produce; cutting and stacking firewood; fencing; building repairs, trail maintenance, the list goes on. I try to match people to tasks according to their skills and preferences but am also happy to teach people new things. I look forward to hearing from you.
