Position: Farm resident
Farm: Windy Mountain Road Farm
Location: River John, Nova Scotia (Pictou County, near Tatamagouche & New Glasgow)
Type: rent and/or work-trade / various options
We have renovated a 40 ft (x8ft x 8ft) shipping container into a 320 sq. ft. studio offgrid home and we are looking for a new tenant(s). We are looking for an individual or a couple who want to do small scale farming (growing food for themselves or for sale). The amenities include a simple composting toilet, woodstove heat, propane cooking, solar panels for some electricity (can be expanded), well water access, semi-furnished, parking. Our bathroom facilities for hot showers would be available for use, as well as laundry. There is lots of light with large windows and an amazing view, as well as an attached mudroom, wood storage and compost, and potential garden area. A nominal rent would be charged that can be negotiated, and there may be some utility cost sharing depending on what is needed by tenant, e.g. wifi.
We are a small scale farm using organic methods, specializing in asparagus, strawberries, arctic kiwis & a mix of other vegetables. We have plenty of garden space that folks can use to do their own market garden. Check out our listing on farmlink.net.

We cannot assist those who are not legally allowed to be residents and/or workers in Canada.
