Hampton Farms

Nova Scotia is one of Canada's prettiest provinces, and is known as Canada's Ocean Playground. My farm is near lots of great hiking opportunities and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Joggins Fossil Cliffs.
My farm is very peaceful, the animals are very sweet, and I'm told that I'm an interesting host.

It's just me here. :-) If I'm being honest, I'm a bit ... eccentric. So, if you're a little offbeat, that's not a problem for me. Volunteers will have 25 hours a week of fairly active but not extremely heavy work - mostly animal care, fibre processing, and general farm maintenance. I am supposedly an excellent cook, and I make sure my volunteers eat well. One of my quirks that I should mention, though, is that I cannot abide any amount of food being wasted. In the evenings, you can relax on the property or retire to your room.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I got exactly what I was looking for. This is a good place to learn new skills as Art will teach you how to do things and then leave you to work at your own pace, and doesn’t like to micro-manage. Art is a lovely guy and a great cook. There is some beautiful scenery around and Art will recommend some of the best spots. This is a great experience to have if you’re looking to learn new skills and connect with nature. It’s more enjoyed if you’re able to spend lots of time by yourself. I highly recommend Hampton’s Farm.

My stay with Art was absolutely incredible. We got along great, got lots done, and had some great talks. He has lots of great stories and is very kind. His animals are fun to care for and I enjoyed learning new ways to do lots of things. He is a great cook and taught me some new tips and tricks that I will definitely be trying :)

I highly recommend giving Art and his farm a visit!

Hamptons Farm was a true farm experience. You got the chance to meet and work with the animals and to do projects around. If your don' t have experience is a good place to learn how to do fencing, bush cleaning, feeding the animals, cleaning their spaces and work with the Alpaca wool.

Art is friendly and respectful, also a good cook, and he will teach you his sistem and then give you freedom to work at your own peace.

Hampton Farms was my first volunteering and what a wonderful experience. Art is an incredible host, he opened the doors of his home, I feel part of his family, we shared very interesting conversations. He also cooked delicious food for me and I always felt at home. Its the perfect place to disconnect from everything, with the meadows, the rivers, the waterfalls and the sea that has so much magic. I enjoy taking care of animals, alpacas are extremely curious and chickens will steal your heart. It is a great place to learn to go slow disconect from city life and conect with nature.
