Area: WalesOur farm is a small, busy 23 acre organic family farm. We grow vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers that we sell directly at two local farmers markets, through our box scheme and to local pubs, shops and restaurants. We will soon be adding a small fold of Highland cattle to the farm. The farm is run by myself Nathan and my wife Alicia, along with the help of my mother Muriel who lives with us. We have two small children and a small menagerie of cats, chickens and a dog, who along with the children are more or less helpful at any given time! The farm is still in it's infancy, started just five years ago. Where we farm is stunningly beautiful but quite remote. The farm is situated in the small hamlet of Llwyndafydd, with views of farmland across the coombe. Cymtydu beach is just over a mile’s walk down a beautiful country lane, with easy access to Cardigan Bay’s protected heritage coastline and coastal path. Lonely Planet has named Coastal Wales the 'Best Region on Earth' to visit in 2012. We have a very active Facebook page, where we post loads of photo's and stories of our farming life here on the 'wild' west coast of Wales. Contact us for the web address.
Area: Middle America, southwest of St. Louis, MissouriOur family lives on over 60 acres of mostly forested hill country in the Ozark Highland area of Missouri. Here, we have a lake and plenty of space for hiking and a lot of wildlife here and in the area. The lovely local rivers (Meramec, Courtois and Huzzah) are close-by, and America's two largest rivers, the Missouri and the Mississippi, are about an hour from here. Rex and Lorian have a business - Rex does landscape gardening and solar power installation, and we teach about solar and natural building. Lorian did homeschool their children (now 14 and 19) and works with the business, as well as working part-time at the local state park. We have a pretty relaxed family with dogs, cats, poultry and a horse. We volunteer with two non-profit organizations, one is through our local State Park, which has a beautiful National Landmark, amazing Onondaga Cave. Our land is rugged and beautiful, but not manicured. We like things to be pretty natural, with fairly minimal impact and footprint, although some sprucing-up is always needed! We offer educational opportunities to others who share our desire to live a more sustainable life. Opportunities include a fusion of natural and alternative building, organic gardening, solar power, and native land renovation. We are looking for interested workawayers to work with us in these areas.

Wir betreiben keinen Anbau mehr, halten ein paar Hühner und haben Hund und Katzen.

Wir wünschen uns eine Frau mit etwas Lebenserfahrung, Liebe zur Natur, Flexibilität und Freude am einfachen Leben. Neben mietfreiem Wohnen bieten wir zusätzlich an, von unserem Wissen über Heilkräuter zu profitieren und an einem Malkurs teilzunehmen.
