I mean, really lucky?
Want a job and some land in a place that travel magazines consistently rate as one of the most beautiful spots on earth?
Sisters Sandee MacLean and Heather Coulombe, owners of the Farmer’s Daughter general store and bakery in the Cape Breton Island town of Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia (population about 800), just might have an offer you can’t refuse.
To wit: 2.5 acres of land and a job for people who are willing to relocate to their community.
To qualify, it’s best that you like people, can bake, are willing to work hard and be a Canadian resident.
The offer is there.

Over 1,500 people have already inquired.
