We’re Hiring for Winter 2019!!

Thank you SO much for all of your interest. We had many great interviews, so much so that we felt we could make a decision.

Thank you again for your interest and if you would like to hand in an application for future years please do not hesitate. 


We are looking to expand our team for the 2019 season! If you think you’d like to spend the winter with us, please click the page link below for more information.

2019 Expeditions are live, and space is limited already!

Looking for winter!

As spring turns into summer, and the sun starts its slow slide back to the depths of December, we can’t help but start thinking of winter again!

Our 2019 expedition schedule is now live:

If there’s something you were hoping for and don’t see it on the schedule above, we’d love to hear from you,as we may be able to squeeze in one more public trip alongside some of our private offerings.

Two New Soling Videos Live!

Hey everyone! We finally are fulfilling the promise to get some more videos and products out to you. Here is a video explaining how to paint on a life-prolonging sole to your moccasins. They are soft and flexible which retains the beauty of the buckskin moccasin.

And this is a short video on your yearly maintenance of your sole and what to do for reapplication.

Spring Cleaning= Free Stuff!

It is finally here to stay! Spring!!! A whopping +8*C today and we’re starting to clean-out the closets.

We have been holding on to these fur jackets since we started the business. I think it’s clear that we’re not doing anything with them so we want you, our loyal customers to have them! If you were planning on starting next years’ winter projects early, then hop on board and get a jacket to go with your purchase!

Check our our FREE STUFF page for what available.


Back at the Homestead!

A massive thank you to everyone who supported us through this season! New customers and participants, and trusted loyal followers alike, we thank you. You are helping us make our dream at the Pond come true. We are now back, working on firewood collection, filing our tax returns and working away at the orders you’ve placed this winter. With this lingering winter, we are hoping to get your orders out so that you still may be able to use your new gear this season! We will be posting photos on our Facebook page of the season in the coming days so stay tuned.

We also will be releasing our summer schedule shortly so don’t forget to sign-up for our newsletter to have first crack at it! Happy Spring!!!!

We are Out’a Here!

We are off to the Mighty Missinaibi on our final adventure this winter season. We will be back on the 10th of March and will be slowly getting back to orders and emails. We very much appreciate all of your continued support for us. Please accept our apologies for any delays you may encounter.

Not shipping until mid-March

Its winter!!! 

The tripping season is upon us and we’re in full swing now.  We’ll be out on trip pretty well steady from now until mid-March.  We may have an opportunity to ship some kits in late February, but then again,may not.  Please call or write in advance if you’re not able to wait until mid-March.  We’re very sorry for the inconvenience but hope you’ll have lots of opportunities to get outside and enjoy the season!
