  • Description

    Description

    Situated on a 250 acre organic farm in the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY we are renovating our 18th century farmhouse and need your help!! We also have beautiful barns from the 1800s where we host weddings, film screenings, and yoga retreats, as well as chickens and a small garden. Ideally we are looking for people who have experience building but are open to those who are willing to get their hands dirty with a smile on their face! We have a lovely dog - Margaux - who enjoys running around the fields! Margaux gave birth to puppies in August 2018 so we have added two of her adorable daughters to our crew as well!

    They will be in a lovely environment and travelers will get to be a part of an amazing community. The host is a native French woman so they can practice French, learn about gardening, home renovation and chickens! The community has a lot of fun stuff going on and a lot of young people so it is also a great place to enjoy the summer!

    Help

    Currently, we are focusing on home renovations! A lot of scraping and painting involved, but always good vibes and good times!

    We will need help with gardening on a small scale, flower landscaping, carpentry repair of antique furniture, and chicken raising. There is a lakefront property so one can go swimming every day in Seneca Lake, as well as explore the property! Travelers must enjoy dogs as we have three English Mastiffs :) In an ideal world I will build a tiny home this summer and would LOVE help with this too!
