    greetings & blessed fall. we hope you're staying happy & well out there. we apologize for delayed emails; we have very limited wifi, but we will respond. Presently, we are only seeking folks serious about winter here. we are specifically interested in folks with some basic understanding of off grid living, community minded for shared meals & projects with basic carpentry & wood splitting skills.

    ***********FALL 2023 *******. We’re looking for caretakers for OCT, NOV, DEC, & JAN to join our primary steward here if anyone’s interested in getting their chops off grid in colder times!! your primary responsibility will be the animals & participating in a few community meals each week with the other land mates.

    if there’s a week or more that you’d be interested in committing to, please reach out as we try & fill our calendar. for folks wanting a longer stay or through the whole of winter, we require a trial time together to make sure it’s a good fit & prefer carpentry & skillsets suitable for winter months as it can be quite challenging at times. 4x4 or all wheel drive is recommended in winter.

    we generally account for all your food while you stay on our farm, and while we can still offer amazing spaces & experience for a worktrade, you must help provide for special food that isn't grown or foraged from the land like coffee, etc.

    about us & the farm: we are an off grid farmily with three full-time human dwellers and 5 dogs, too many barn cats, chickens & turkey. we have two horses & a donkey in our neighbor’s pasture.

    we delight in sharing our teaching & learning permaculture farmstead & invite you to our magical forest. we live off the grid on a microhydro electric & solar pv system; we grow much of our food. we forage & wildcraft. we make kombuchas & kimchi. we generally learn as much from visitors as we hope to share & teach.

    we are a working farmstead, so there are often a variety of projects in motion. we prefer hosting couples, small groups of folks & families with skills and experience in carpentry, natural building, and alternative energy systems. we host workshops, camps, day programs & events throughout the year.

    we work hard to lighten our footprint in this world, & our cabins, tent spaces & farmhouse reflect that. we invite you to leave behind traditional amenities & come to the end of the road to learn, teach, grow, relax, reflect, dream & more. we try & love the life we live & live the life we love.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    our farm is an amazing place for both respite and a day to day look at the lives of offgrid subsistence. we prefer to host multiple volunteers/work traders/visitors at a time, & we believe in each one, teach one and that many hands do make light work. while it is romantic sometimes, it's also incredibly challenging, but with the help of many hands, sustainability & resiliency are that much closer to reality for us all. we delight in sharing our land & we are deeply grateful for your help & wisdom.

  • Arbeit


    right now we prefer workawayers with some skills and experience in carpentry, natural building, and/or alternative energy systems. we've found that learning our systems takes time & it's best if folks can spend several weeks or more here, but we can be negotiable via email, etc.
    we can accept families & children, but winter months can be challenging.

  • Unterkunft


    tents work best for short visitors in warm weather. we also have a couple of cabins & a full sized schoolbus we'd like to convert to housing space, so that could be a project for you!! we have our main farmhouse which has some hostel spaces upstairs that are sometimes open.
