Farm description

Active U-Pick apple orchard (5-7 acres), grape vines, pears, plums, berries and more. 76 acres in total, 30 acres woodlot, the balance is orchard, hay/pasture, vegetable gardens and pond, with 300+ feet of waterfront on the Miramichi River. Currently in transition from a conventional operation to a permaculture orchard and farm, employing ecological/sustainable practices, but not certified organic. As a popular Agritourism destination, it is open to the public/schools/organizations for direct sales, u-pick and other farm-related/educational purposes. We are building an on-site farm store, fixing two older barns, one with walk-in cooler for our laying hens, ducks and goats and future sheep. Fencing and irrigation coming Spring 2022. We would like to see the farm grow and become an agritourism destination/farm-stay, educational in orientation (sustainable farming, food security, community-sufficiency, nutrition and lifestyle, etc.). There is plenty of space and opportunity!

Farm opportunity

We are looking for an active partner(s) to live on-site and help our family run the farm (fruit/veg/hay/other) as we run two separate businesses. There is ample opportunity for direct sales from the farm store/garden stand, u-pick sales and event bookings. Housing may be provided. Profit sharing or other model for compensation to be discussed.
