I know, I know… how many times have you heard “Cape Breton, Nova Scotia Free Land and Job”, maybe a thousand times? However this is a true story!
A little town in Nova Scotia is campaigning for people just like yourself – well if you are Canadian that is. Located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia “The Farmer’s Daughter” posted on their Facebook page an offering for Free land and a job!
As I read about this offer I thought, what would it be like to get away from it all? No highway traffic, hustle of the corporate world and just the overall fast pace of life. Do something different, take the road less traveled.
Isn’t that what life should be?
From their Facebook page:“We are looking for people who are environmentally conscious, want to be part of a community and will see our business not as you work for us, but we all work together to create something to be proud of. If you take pride in being friendly, helpful, and positive and have skills in the food industry or customer service, then you are who we are looking for.
We cannot offer you big money (wages in local small Cape Breton businesses are not high) but we can offer you a great incentive to come and try us out. One thing our business does have is LOTS of LAND. If you decide this opportunity might fit your dreams and goals for a close to nature and community focused life, then we are willing to offer you 2 acres of woodland where you can immediately set up your tiny house or quaint cabin. Plus give you access to our farmland and other resources we have available. If you are still working with us after five years and we all still like each other after that time, then the land is yours for the cost of migrating it out and putting it in your name.”
I have to admit it is appealing on many levels…
