The Farmer's Daughter store has been operating in Whycocomagh, N.S., for almost 25 years. The owners need help and offering something you might be unable to refuse: 2.5 acres of land to live on. We have a split photo. On the right we have a shot of the front of the store. It is ranch like with baskets and produce sitting in front. The white sign atop has (printed in big, bright, red letters) "Farmer's Daughter."  On the left is a long shot summer shot of the town as it sits by a beautiful bay.

Feeling lucky?

Sisters Heather Coulombe (left) and Sandee MacLean will never be accused of not thinking outside the box when it comes to hiring practices. Heather is dressed in a blue tee-shirt and blue shorts. She has brown, curly hair that falls to her shoulders. Sandee's brown hair is shorter. She wears a blue tee-shirt and grey pants. Both appear to be in their early 40s. Between them stands a tall sign-like painting of a dark-haired woman wearing blue overalls over a light blue shirt below a straw hat. She wears black boots on her feet and holds an apple in her right hand.

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.

Been there since last Sunday,

But you best move fast.

Over 1,500 people have already inquired.

MacLean and Coulombe took over the business earlier this year from their dairy farmer parents, who started it nearly 25 years ago.

They want to expand from 12 to at least 15 year-round employees, and they want to do that as soon as possible.

Like, right now.

RCI spoke by phone on Wednesday with MacLean, who was at the general store.

Note: By submitting your comments, you acknowledge that Radio Canada International has the right to reproduce, broadcast and publicize those comments or any part thereof in any manner whatsoever. Radio Canada International does not endorse any of the views posted. Your comments will be pre-moderated and published if they meet netiquette guidelines.

Netiquette »

When you express your personal opinion in an online forum, you must be as courteous as if you were speaking with someone face-to-face. Insults and personal attacks will not be tolerated. To disagree with an opinion, an idea or an event is one thing, but to show disrespect for other people is quite another. Great minds don’t always think alike—and that’s precisely what makes online dialogue so interesting and valuable.

Netiquette is the set of rules of conduct governing how you should behave when communicating via the Internet. Before you post a message to a blog or forum, it’s important to read and understand these rules. Otherwise, you may be banned from posting.

  1. RCInet.ca’s online forums are not anonymous. Users must register, and give their full name and place of residence, which are displayed alongside each of their comments. RCInet.ca reserves the right not to publish comments if there is any doubt as to the identity of their author.
  2. Assuming the identity of another person with intent to mislead or cause harm is a serious infraction that may result in the offender being banned.
  3. RCInet.ca’s online forums are open to everyone, without regard to age, ethnic origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
  4. Comments that are defamatory, hateful, racist, xenophobic, sexist, or that disparage an ethnic origin, religious affiliation or age group will not be published.
  5. In online speak, writing in ALL CAPS is considered yelling, and may be interpreted as aggressive behaviour, which is unpleasant for the people reading. Any message containing one or more words in all caps (except for initialisms and acronyms) will be rejected, as will any message containing one or more words in bold, italic or underlined characters.
  6. Use of vulgar, obscene or objectionable language is prohibited. Forums are public places and your comments could offend some users. People who use inappropriate language will be banned.
  7. Mutual respect is essential among users. Insulting, threatening or harassing another user is prohibited. You can express your disagreement with an idea without attacking anyone.
  8. Exchanging arguments and opposing views is a key component of healthy debate, but it should not turn into a dialogue or private discussion between two users who address each other without regard for the other participants. Messages of this type will not be posted.
  9. Radio Canada International publishes contents in five languages. The language used in the forums has to be the same as the contents we publish. The usage of other languages, with the exception of some words, is forbidden. Messages that are off-topic will not be published.
  10. Making repetitive posts disrupts the flow of discussions and will not be tolerated.
  11. Adding images or any other type of file to comments is forbidden. Including hyperlinks to other websites is allowed, as long as they comply with netiquette. Radio Canada International  is in no way responsible for the content of such sites, however.
  12. Copying and pasting text written by someone else, even if you credit the author, is unacceptable if that text makes up the majority of your comment.
  13. Posting any type of advertising or call to action, in any form, to Radio Canada International  forums is prohibited.
  14. All comments and other types of content are moderated before publication. Radio Canada International  reserves the right to refuse any comment for publication.
  15. Radio Canada International  reserves the right to close a forum at any time, without notice.
  16. Radio Canada International  reserves the right to amend this code of conduct (netiquette) at any time, without notice.
  17. By participating in its online forums, you allow Radio Canada International to publish your comments on the web for an indefinite time. This also implies that these messages will be indexed by Internet search engines.
  18. Radio Canada International has no obligation to remove your messages from the web if one day you request it. We invite you to carefully consider your comments and the consequences of their posting.
