My wife and I moved to Hartland New Brunswick in May 2009. Previously we lived in the Kitchener, Cambridge, Brantford, Ontario area all of our lives but decided to move to New Brunswick too escape the city and live in the country.
We retired in 2008 as the company we were working for closed their Canadian operation and laid everyone off. We could not find any work so we decided to pursue a new chapter in our lives.
We are on 1 1/3 acres near Hartland and live mostly off of the land. We grow all of our own produce and store it for the winter. We have 12 chickens and I just ordered a new batched to bolster the flock. We are now in the process of making our own cheese. My wife does stain glass work and I do a little woodworking to keep busy over the winter months.
We are amazed at how much our lives have changed since we retired. We really appreciate life more and discover that there is more to it that a 9-5 occupation.
