  • Description


    Our place is a permaculture inspired 38-acre farm and ranch located about an hour southeast of Dallas. The property has a beautiful 6-acre lake to be enjoyed by everyone. We strive for sustainability in closing loops to reduce our overall waste. We have a market garden, fruit tree orchard, and a flock of dorper sheep that have been lambing and are rotationally grazed. We are very young farm so there’s no shortage of need for helping hands as we work the land. And if you have other experiences or ideas, we love to hear about them too!
    Currently on the farm, most of our efforts involve tending to the animals and preparing the market garden for next season. It’s likely at least part of our working days will be spent in the garden planting and nurturing vegetables. Recently our projects included converting an old barn to a large chicken coop. We also have an orchard of 60 young pear and peach trees that we tend to. Finally if you have suggestions or ideas for different types of vegetables to plant or projects you’d like to be involved in we welcome your ideas!
    We are flexible on length of stay typically workawayers will stay one to two weeks. We are open to workawayers interested in staying longer.
    Our expectation is that workawayers will be respectful of the host, each other and the farm. Accommodations include a bunk room with two twin beds and private bath. We are also open to camping. Transportation can be provided from the Dallas area. Specific pickup details can be discussed with us. As always you can also drive yourself. We speak English and are open to pets on an approval basis. If you have children please reach out to discuss more details.
    Our goal for the farm is to one day be completely self-sufficient. In the meantime our hope is to have a diverse abundance of organically grown produce available from the garden for us to eat. In the future we also plan to have meat, eggs and possibly dairy produced on the farm. Since we’re just starting we supplement quite a bit of our diets with the grocery store. We can accommodate pretty much all types of diets supplementing farm produce with grocery. Please bring any dietary preferences to our attention.
    We look forward to workawayers interested in sustainable, organic farming while sharing in a fun collective experience!
