Aurora Farm is also a member of WWOOF Canada and we host travellers from around the world who want to come and learn at our farm. At this time we are not hosting any WWOOFers for the forseeable future due to COVID-19.
Here’s what one WWOOFer wrote about Aurora Farm:
“Aurora Farm is the best Wwoofing experience I have ever had. Louise, Aynsleigh and everyone at the farm were so welcoming right from the beginning. I learned a lot about milking goats, how to make natural goat milk soap, and met many amazing humans and animals. There is always something to do at the farm and it is never boring. I got a chance to ride horses almost every day which is a dream for me. I loved helping to make all the products and chatting with people who visit the farm on Open Farm days, telling them fun stories about all the animals. Thank you Louise for the amazing time and I hope to visit in the future!”
