Wanted: Homestead helper, couple or group
Type: work in exchange for meals (see below)
Homestead: Nathren HOPES homestead

Location: 20 mins north of Belleville, Ontario
Housing: tent or trailer space available

We are a family-run homestead looking for help a few days a week. Myself and my husband have 5 children on two acres 20 minutes north of Belleville. My husband works full time and I need help managing the homestead as we have a new baby and children are homeschooled. This would included animal duties (chickens, pigs, sheep, duck, turkeys, livestock guardian dog), garden work (such as planting, weeding, rototilling) and outside labour (fixing fences, building basic structures, pruning, chopping wood).

If you are available to be here a few days a week that would be ideal. We do not have accommodation but we do have land if you wanted to camp or had a trailer or wanted to build a tiny home. We would offer meals for the days your here and food from our land (organic vegetables/fruit, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, duck, eggs, ferments and preserves) as payment. Also a personal garden plot if you want to grow your own foods.

Someone looking for experience, fresh air and excerise, who enjoys children and is hard working would be ideal. Come for a few days or all summer — needed ASAP!!

Single people, couples or groups welcome — there’s always lots to do.

Please contact me via email at:
and tell us about yourself.
