Looking for a new job? How about a new job and your own piece of land?

In a small village in Nova Scotia there is a store called Farmer's Daughter Market that is run by two sisters. They inherited the business from their parents and since then have been trying to fill in the gaps in the staff. Unfortunately for them no one was biting, so they decided to sweeten the deal.

In addition to the store the sisters also inherited more than 100 acres of family land. So in a new job posting anyone who applies also has a shot at owning their own plot of land.
