    Beschreibung

    We're looking for enthusiastic, helpful hands to join us on our ranch, which is nestled in the mountains and surrounded by beautiful national forest land. We are a thriving intentional community that started in the early 90’s. Residents moved from the city to create a country oasis where friendship, fun, and delicious organic food is central. Our community has members ranging in age from 18 to mid 70's. Workawayers of all ages and nationalities are welcome.

    We have been on this property since 2001, and have been hosting Workawayers since 2014. Since then, we have welcomed over 170 visitors to our home. Our ranch is located in rural Siskiyou County on 20 acres of land. Because our property abuts Klamath National Forest, wildlife is prolific from birds to beavers, fox, deer and more.
    There are two houses on the property. There are also on-site accommodations for Workawayers which include: an RV, small cabin, shared bedroom and tents.

    Crops include:
    Spring & Fall Garden: greens, radishes, asparagus, beets, carrots, lettuce, sorrel, parsley and more.
    Summer Garden (going in now): tomatoes, peppers, corn, squash, cucumbers, beans, garlic, shallots, and more.
    Grape vines: 6 varieties
    Fruit Orchard: Apple, Pear, Montmorency and Sweet Cherry, Peach, Fig and Plum.
    Wild crops: watercress, blackberry, mint, mushrooms, lemon balm, chamomile and many other herbs.
    Farm animals include: Chickens, guinea fowl, hogs, goats, working ranch dogs. We also have bees.

    We appreciate when people come here with an open mind ready to experience a different lifestyle than what you have previously been exposed to. We like to think of this program as an immersive experience for you not only to grasp the nuts and bolts of organic farming, but also living pleasurably in a group.

    We mostly do tasks together, meaning you will be learning alongside one or more members of our community. You may be caring for animals, weeding, pruning, tilling fields, planting and harvesting. Depending on the season you will also assist with different techniques of food preservation including canning, pickling and dehydrating. Our growing season starts in February and goes into October for outside gardening, and through the winter for greenhouse-grown produce. We are always doing something, whether it be in the garden or in other aspects of the ranch. Other projects in the works are: splitting and stacking wood, mulching and fertilizing summer garden, general maintenance and upgrading of existing structures, construction of new structures, lumber milling, brushing for wildfire prevention, alternative energy installation, composting toilet maintenance and much more. On your personal time, you may enjoy our refreshing swimming hole, play on our bocce ball court, grass tennis and volleyball court, outdoor basketball hoop, beautiful view from our side decks, creek walking or exercise trails.

    If English is not your first language that's okay. There are many ways to get the point across. We are omnivores with an emphasis on garden vegetables, particularly in the summer months. If you adhere to a strict vegan philosophy, our ranch may not be a match for you.

    *NOTE ON COVID-19: We are opening our Workaway program back up after being closed for two years due to the pandemic. In order to reopen, we have certain restrictions for the safety of our community, which include but is not limited to the following:
    -Fully vaccinated and boostered upon time of arrival
    -Minimum stay of six weeks

    In addition:
    We cannot accommodate pets.
    No drugs/illegal substances on the property.
    Please disclose health and medical information prior to arrival.  

    If all of this sounds good to you please contact us and we can set up a correspondence. We look forward to meeting you!
