I had an amazing time staying on the farm with Jane! I learned so much about cooking (she makes amazing food), growing plants, and farm life. The dogs and horses are so friendly and I will miss them a lot! The tasks were all very achievable and Jane explains very well how she wants them done. The room was very comfortable and cosy. Overall I had an amazing experience, I will look back fondly on my time there :)

I felt welcomed and Jane was a great host! I left earlier then anticipated but she was really understanding. The animals were super cute and the work was manageable.

I had the pleasure of spending the holidays with Jane and her family, all the volunteers present were included in their traditions. Life at the farm was a bit of an adjustment, Jane is keen on her ways of doing things and it was interesting yet challenging to adjust to the farm lifestyle. Great memories were made and being surrounded by nature and animals was a one-in-a-time life experience. Thank you, Jane, for granting me the opportunity to immerse in your life on the farm, this opportunity fulfilled an aspiration of mine. If you get to meet sweet Sadie give her all the love on my behalf.

I had a wonderful time at the Farm! Thanks to Jane I had some very amazing weeks, I was able to learn a lot about her animals, plants and her farm in general, which was all very interesting and she showed me some useful tricks for life. I was also able to experience some unique experiences like Ice fishing with her family and friends, skiing at Sun Peaks, Christmas or New year. During my whole stay I felt super welcomed and comfortable, it was always fun and I had an incredible time! I will never forget my stay here and it was very hard to say goodbye to everyone! Thank you Jane!

The experience at Jane's farm was amazing! From the minute I arrived I felt very welcomed and got to know the farm, animals, surroundings and friends & family quickly. If you strive to explore beautiful Canadian nature and activities like horse riding, skiing at a nearby resort, ice fishing etc, this is the place to go. I'm so thankful for everything Jane offered me, especially to stay even longer than previously arranged!! I will miss this place and not to forget the three cutest dogs that will follow you everywhere you go.
