We grow medicinal herbs to make teas, tinctures, and salves, at a small scale. We also raise bunny rabbits to use their manure on the plants. Because the bunnies help cycle nutrients on the farm they have helped us to earn a Regenerative Certification. We also make our own compost tea and plant ferment fertilizers with on farm ingredients.
We have a large homestead garden and small orchard with chickens. It has been a labor of love and after several years the trees are finally starting to bear fruits.
We plan on having several garden tours this year to show our regenerative methods. We will also be attending several herbal markets.
We sometimes work off site doing environmental monitoring jobs.

We have a great deal of knowledge to share from herbal remedies, to identifying mushrooms, zero waste solutions, environmental remediation, ancestral skills, cultural competency, regenerative gardening, etc. We are hoping to share dinners together for this kind of information exchange. We would love to hear about your travels and insights you have gained along the way.
The farm is in a beautiful location overlooking vineyards and rolling hills of oak savanah. We are a 1.5 hour drive from Giant Redwood Trees, Hot Springs, and Coastal Beaches. We are 20 minutes away from wine tasting at local vineyards, art galleries, a native basketry museum, and live music venues.

As an integrated mix of a homestead and small business there are many tasks to do. Most of the tasks we consider to be an exchange for room and board plus learning opportunities. A few of the tasks that directly relate to the small business we can pay for.
Homestead tasks include - feeding bunnies, caring for plants, making compost tea and plant ferment fertilizers, weeding, building farm infrastructure, tidying up, preparing for fire season, etc.
Herbal business tasks include - harvesting and drying herbs, packaging products, attending herbal markets
About half the tasks will be done together and half independently with instruction.
Once the weather gets hot we will have a Mediterranean style schedule with chores and projects done in the cooler hours of the morning and evening and a long siesta in the middle of the day.

The farm is beautiful but somewhat remote. We are on 20 acres of oak Savanah about 15-20 minutes from the nearest town.
For those without a vehicle - if you need to run errands I go to town nearly 5 days a week to bring my child to school and back during the school year and make trips into town frequently in the summer also. For sight seeing we may be able to arrange trips to local sites on Sundays.
For those with a vehicle - the last mile up to our place is a steep bumpy dirt road but most 2wd vehicles make it up fine.
The weather is ideal in the spring and fall, Hot in summer, and mildly cold in the winter with heavy rains.
