Gardening, forestry
We live in a small cottage on a friendly lake about 3 hours north of Toronto.
We have the usual cottage toys available, canoe, small sailboat, row boat. Looking for help with selective cutting trees for firewood and lumber which we cut on our own small mill. Hopefully someone that is a better gardener than we are as we would like to start growing our own produce and maybe even get some chickens. Help with some construction and painting projects. We have some old machinery we are always trying to keep running. We are offering free accommodation and meals in exchange for help.
This is a no smoking environment.

We`re back taking helpers after our move to Ontario. We`ve missed hosting our helpers, sharing culture, and having lot`s of fun.

We operate a small software business located near Perth, ON, no longer in the Rocky Mountains. We live on the beautiful quiet Black Lake and we enjoy the peacefulness of the nature that surrounds us. Enjoy home cooked meals, fresh bread out of the oven and our very own honey from our 2 bee hives. There is also internet access and laundry.


Our home is approximately 15 minutes from Perth and 1.5 hours from Ottawa. We live on a small parcel of land where we are in need of help with maintenance, tree trimming, gardening, etc.

Being right next to the lake, there is plenty of opportunities for swimming, kayaking, fishing, canoeing, and saunas. At night, listen for the beautiful loon calls! We take helpers all year through and enjoy showing off our wonderful country.

NON-SMOKERS ONLY.

I welcome you to stay on a horse and hobby farm!
This is a place where 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!

There are always farm-typical projects we can accomplish together - depending on the season - just ask.

Usually there are 3 - 4 helpers here at a time, working together or splitting the tasks.

All food is included. All dietary needs will be met. We cook vegetarian meals.

The regular tasks are healthy vegetarian cooking, walking and feeding the dogs, and taking care of the horses (feeding and mucking).

You can also pick from the following tasks depending on your interests:

1) Training the dogs in obedience, and - if you have interest - training them in agility or show them some tricks.

2) Mechanically skillful people could help me maintaining and repairing vintage tractors, pickup trucks and horse-driven sleighs and carriages.

I am happy to t... more inside

So, no pics of snow blowing after a monster storm, no pics of maple syrup production, of the vegetable garden, of the many flower beds to be kept, of the wide expanse of lawns to mow, of weed whacking, forest management and maintenance, the portable saw-mill, the summer cottage, rhubarb chutney processing, the asparagus bed, the apple harvest, and no pics of the fitness room, trampoline or the five workshops.
WHAT HELPX MEANS TO ME: Giving HelpXers a chance to be creative, inventive, resourceful and independent, given access to the extensive machinery and equipment that is available. Sure, the camaraderie and companionship are important, as are the opportunities to experience a variety of culinary delights that are brought to the table.
Just few examples of the creativity, ingenuity, initiative and discovery that HelpXers have developed at the farm or while traveling.

We are a small family of three homesteading in beautiful Northern Ontario. Although we have run our farm as a business in the past, as of 2017 we are no longer operating as a commercial farm. Instead we are homesteading and growing food for our family and friends. We have a large vegetable garden, a young orchard, large berry patch, egg laying chickens, a family cow and a pony. 

There's lots of work to be done on the farm and we would love some help! Work could involve daily care of livestock (feeding, watering, collecting eggs), garden work (weeding, adding compost, planting and picking vegetables), cleaning out barns, construction projects, fencing and painting.

We live in the bush - home to black bears, moose, deer and lots of other wildlife - including mosquitos! It is a large property (150+ acres) on a quiet road with very distant neighbours. We are surrounded by beautiful, wild forests and Canadian shield rock, with about 10 cleared acres of pasture and gardens.
