Over the years, WWOOFers have helped us work our land.

They spend their days on agritourism and animal husbandry tasks,  beekeeping, canning, planting, harvesting, mulching,

fencing and weeding, etc. in exchange for food and shelter.

We've hosted almost a hundred WWOOFers

and look forward to welcoming more.

If you're looking for a memorable, immersive travel experience...

Our agritourism destination is the perfect place to connect with nature and

the origin of products. We're passionate about our land and sharing what we do.

You're housed in our spacious home or in a cozy canvas or a trailer in the woods.


WWOOFers are welcome to use the dock, beach area, and barrel sauna,

as well as canoe and kayak around the lake.


We like to work hard, then go for a swim! 

Chores vary depending on the season.

what wwoofers have to say...

"It was a massive jackpot to end up at this lovely place. My buddy, Oli, and I became part of the family. Our accommodation was cozy and we carried out various jobs at the farm. Near the end of our stay, we were visited by our girlfriends and helped prepare the first camp site on the property. It was an unforgettable time for us, sitting at the beach at midnight gazing at so many stars and finding inspiration for our future back home. My girlfriend became my wife and mother of my daughter, and, because of Deborah and our time at Smith Lake Farm, we started our own beekeeping business."

"When I think of Smith Lake Farm, it’s not just a farm where I worked for a short time when travelling through Canada almost a decade ago. Rather, it's a home on the other side of the world. A place I’ll return to at anytime and be welcomed by the wonderful host provided a place to stay and adopted me into her extended family. Out of all the beautiful places I came across during six months of backpacking in the second largest country in the world, it was Smith Lake Farm to which I returned two years later. Smith Lake Farm has a unique atmosphere created by the combination of feeling sheltered and very much at ease, while at the same time experiencing pristine wilderness."
