  • Description


    Our place is a farm in the hills of NorCal. We have a 17ft deep swimming 'pool'/pond and two hot tubs which have a magnificent view of Hopland. We have a 3 dogs, a couple of turkeys, goats, chicken and peacocks and the odd dear that we try and keep out the premises (as they eat our flowers).
    There are a few resident workers that live on the land, who enjoy having the odd traveler stop by with stories to share.
    People on the land need to be able to live in community, help to clean up and pack things away.
    We have a 48kw solar array which has just been erected and it is a sight to see. Our land currently has an 'annual net zero', as we feed back into the grid all our excess power.
    Our communal shower facility has a beautiful view of the land.
    We love people coming to stay and sharing their culinary tastes, even better if you love cooking, and that could be one of your tasks.

    We have 660 fruit trees that are going to be ready for harvest end of summer/beginning of fall. We are looking for some assistance in fruit picking!!

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️Smoking tobacco or drinking alcohol is prohibited. Our property is considered a sanctuary for those that come to stay.

    We're looking for people to come and stay possibly for a week or two at a time.

    What else ...

    If you have your own car, a short trip into town can get you some great culinary experience, as well as a visit to the Montgomery woods or the coast.
    Time off in the summer can be spent next to the pool or walking around the beautiful gardens. No tobacco nor alcohol allowed on the premises.
