Simple Life on a Small Farm

Camp Morton, near Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba

Through no fault of its own we are selling our little farm located in Camp Morton, Manitoba. We have enjoyed this 119.23 acre property for just over a decade, living a simple life together with our family farming. It is situated just 2.5 miles west of Lake Winnipeg, so on hot days we take an hour out of our days to go jump in the lake on a quiet beach. . . or head up a little further north or south to enjoy busier beaches. It also is only 1.25 miles on gravel from Hwy 8, about an hour north of Winnipeg, which has been great for reaching and delivering a greater area with our farm goods.

The completely fenced land, which has been free from chemicals for at least 10 years, is a mix of pasture, forest, and previously cultivated fields that are all protected by cross fences. There are barely any neighbors in sight and the most common visitors are wildlife, from animals that stay here year round to ones that are just passing through, this place will be home to more than just you if you open your heart to it.

The Home, a sturdy built one and a half story constructed in 1947 has weathered many storms and is more than sound, dry, and warm enough to withstand a future’s worth of them. On the inside you will find a kitchen you can work and eat in, a living room that is always warm, 5 rooms to do what you will with, a bright bathroom, and a full basement that is home to the mechanical services, cold storage rooms, and whatever else you decide.

The red hip roofed building that is joined to a large lean-to under which is a walk in cooler and walk in freezer is yet unfinished on the inside ready to suit your dreams (We have turned it into a tiny home over summer months in the past as there is water there). The old tie stall dairy barn has been refitted as a home for chickens our whole time here (many different configurations) and benefits from the south facing windows, allowing the hens to bathe in light and warmth even in the dead of winter. The large steel shed has served just about every purpose through our decade here from parties, to animal pens, to storage, to curing veggies. The many other buildings each have their stories to tell since all have steel roofs and are still standing because of them. Two wells have been punched into the ground here: the water that our home well pulls from the earth has received many compliments and is piped to multiple buildings. The water from the other older well has been used for irrigation and livestock.

Our hope is to find some loving hands to take over this special place, and while we would like to sell this property as an operating farm, as is, we are certainly open to conversation and listening to what your dreams may be. We have supplies and equipment to continue operating the happy hennery, and many other things (Everything from strawberries and the geese to weed them, to cattle has been on this land.) Over the past five years we have grown out a fields worth of garlic and that stock will also remain in the ground or out.
