Double Attitude Orchard

You can help a new apple orchard and be part of making apple products from the organic apples and other garden products (depends on the season).
We need your help around the organic apple orchard. We are located 80 km from Ottawa and 120 from Montreal. On your free time you can visit either of those cities or go for bike rides ( i have bikes to lend) around the beautiful area. We have long hiking trails on the property which offer the possibility to get lost for an afternoon while exploring and discovering the local nature and wildlife, including deer and wild turkeys.
You will be rewarded by seeing how your help can change things and you will learn to value what you made:)

My spouse and I moved to rural Quebec 2014 to grow apples, make organic apple products and eventually cider. In the spring of 2016 we planted the first portion of the orchard. I am originally from Estonia and Beatrice is French Canadian and we have two young sons who go to school and daycare. We are living on 160 acres of land near the Ottawa river, between Ottawa and Montreal. We are between the villages of Papineauville and Montebello, a very popular touristic area with the biggest log structure in the world :)!

The stay is fine, the food and the room meets the objective, the activities in the free schedule consists of going to the 2 nearby towns, the amount of working hours are fulfilled.
The good thing was to be in some social gatherings in town and see the local activities,
The low point is that the family is not flexible, you have to coordinate activities in advance because they do not move their calendar.

The experience at Orchard Doble Actitud was very nice. Mihkel and Beatriz are very beautiful, kind, friendly, and caring people. They always made us feel comfortable and happy! They love their orchard, and it shows a lot because it is impressive and beautiful. I was able to practice my English, learn about the local culture, and learn a lot about farm life. I highly recommend it!

The orchard experience was amazing! Mihkel and Beatrice make you feel really welcome like you are part of the family. They were really kind and helpful, they offered us a lot of information about the local towns, things to do around, and the culture of the country. We learned a lot from the orchard work, sustentabilty, the importance of organic produce and farmlife. This was a really beautiful place to connect with nature, do some hiking in the woods and have beautiful activities and conversations with the family. We recommend this experience 100%!

The time on the apple ochard was wonderful. I immediately felt welcome and was able to have great conversations with Mihkel and Beatrice. You feel like part of the family on the project and I really enjoyed the time there. This family will always have a place in my heart and I already miss them. They always tried to make me feel comfortable, for which I am incredibly grateful, and also the other Worldpackers made the two weeks an unforgettable time, thank you for everything! I Hope we will see us again☺️🫶🏻

We had the most amazing time with Mikhel and Beatrice! They were both super welcoming and accommodating in allowing us into their home, and went above and beyond to make our experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
If you are open and willing to learn, they are more than willing to teach. Could not recommend highly enough 😊
