Host families

Our host families live across Canada, but most are in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia in western Canada. Most farm placements are crop farms or crop farms that also raise beef cattle. We also have some organic farms, dairy farms, and cow ranches that use working horses. All families are different – some have young children, some are older couples, some have several generations farming together. Some families are very involved in sports, such as baseball, hockey and curling. Other families might have interest in music or art, hunting, or fishing. Some might be a part of community clubs or churches. Canadians are friendly, open-minded, and very happy to welcome people from other countries.

 

Our host families have been screened and we maintain good communication with them. Farmstay participants are involved as an adult member of the host family and learn about Canadian culture and different ways of living. While on the farm, you will experience our wide open spaces & prairie skies or the Rocky Mountains and all the wildlife that comes with it.

HOUSing & meals

You will have a private room in either the family home or a second home on the farmyard. (If you come with a friend or a partner, you may be sharing a room). Your food will be provided by the host family. You might help with cooking sometimes or cook for yourself some meals. If you go out to special events or for restaurant meals, you would pay those costs yourself.
