    Description

    Hello,
    We grow organic table grapes and a fairly large family vegetable garden along with a few fruit trees and herbs.
    Located in a beautiful area very close to Blue Beach for rock and fossil hunting , swimming in the ocean or in our lake.
    There is lots of fun to be had with our rope swing, beautiful sunsets, star gazing, playing basket ball, frisbee, biking to town, camp fires. hiking, explore near by towns with the use of our car or just enjoy the beautiful views. There are separate accommodations with a communal kitchen and lots of food. We are working on a large tree house, zip line, clearing brush and of course tending to grapevines and garden. We are looking for someone to do a fare bit of chain sawing asap, we can teach you how to do it. Hope to see you here.
