Dorothee and I (Mat) live self sufficiently, on a 50 acre organic farm near Straffordville, just south of Tillsonburg.
Our main business is producing organic food grade oils, which we grow and clean on the farm. We also produce spelt flour. Most of the work is done with draft horses but we also have a complete line of tractors, conbine and swather, etc.
The main duties are feeding and caring for the horses as well as doing field work with the horses. We can teach you to drive draft horses.
Wages are according to abilities $12 to $15 per hour and about 35 hours a week.
We have a number of housing opportunities with a one bedroom apartment and four bedroom house off the farm.
We also incubate and raise heritage chickens.
We are self sufficient in food from our garden and share that with our help.
We have 50 acres which includes 9 acres of woods which we log with the horses. There is a trout steam on the property.
We are mostly off-grid with solar cells and diesel generators to run the oil presses, that run on vegetable oil.
We can start your work anytime.
