Farm: Windy Mountain Road Farm
Location: River John, Nova Scotia (Pictou County, near Tatamagouche & New Glasgow)
Housing: included
Type: rent and/or work-trade / various options

We have been successful in finding the right person for our an amazing opportunity - see below the offer. However we will be seeking more people next season, in 2020, as we renovate our next shipping container. The offer will be similar to the one below but a regular monthly rent will be charged, the amount of this to be negotiated depending on possible work-trade agreements (being a farm caretaker during our absences would not be required).  We estimate move in date would be Fall 2020, although super keen folks may be able to move in sooner if they are willing and able to help with the renovations.  During this time folks could either live in a tent or a small retro camper van (no services to it but those of the main house could be used), or park their own RV on our land.  

We have renovated a 40 ft (x8ft x 8ft) shipping container into a 320 sq. ft. studio home and it is now ready to be lived in. The amenities include a simple composting toilet, woodstove heat, propane cooking, solar panels for some electricity (can be expanded), well water, 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.

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.
