If you love nature you will like it here. With the Atlantic Ocean right on our doorstep our almost 200 year old home stead looks like something out of a picture book. At the moment our family includes five horses and three dogs.We also have a small flock of chickens and guinea fowl for pest control and eggs.At this point we are first and foremost looking for help with horse care and therefore a horse savvy person preferably ( but not absolutely necessarily)with advanced riding skills would be best.The area invites many outdoor activities such as biking, bird watching,hiking, beachcombing, kayaking or surfing. Snowshoeing and x-Country skiing in winter if there is enough snow on the ground..Accommodation will be a comfortable room in our old farmhouse, perfect for a single female, a couple or two close friends.

Hi, my name is Jeff. I have lived on Cape Breton Island most of my life. I have a small property on the outer edge of the national park at Pleasant Bay, halfway around the Cabot Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands. Looking for someone who would be interested in helping with clearing land, cutting and burning trees. I could also use some help setting up a glamping site and helping on a small cottage, no experience necessary. Also looking help with updating and building a website, if you know wordpress that would be great.
Accommodations and food provided, some cooking maybe required. You will have lots of time to explore and hike all the trails! I have a puppy now, " Molly "

This is a nascent family farm that wants to be a soil-building, carbon-sequestering, food-raising, community-nurturing, nature-connecting, regenerative permaculture homestead and learning centre when it grows up.

The household is focused on learning about all the things. There is an extensive library, musical instruments abound and a love of food, locally and sustainably grown, is central. We work hard but also love being creative, having Pizza and Movie Night and exploring the woods to ferret out some of Mother Nature`s secrets. We speak a little French and are interested in learning about Your launguage and culture.

Usually we will work together on projects, but I sometimes have non-farm-related work that takes my time and attention, so the ability to work independently is important. Generally I expect 4-6 hours of work a day, depending on what needs doing at the time.

We use permaculture principles and try always to partner with and learn from Nature in creating this spa... more inside
