Hello! Our names are Danny and Emily, and baby Olivia. We moved to our beautiful New Hampshire home in 2020. We have many acres of overgrown land, which we have recently set sheep out on to help us manage. We also have 2 cats, Scout and Atticus, one friendlier than the other. Our historic farmhouse, known as White Brook Farm was built in 1806 (ancient for American standards!) and is located in a small traditional New England village. We have plentiful blueberries, raspberries, blackberries. peaches, apples, and garden veggies to share.
We believe in the practice of sustainable homesteading, and were inspired to pursue our dreams of getting 'back to the land' during the pandemic. Knowing that we have minimal impact upon earth's resources, respecting the environment, and supporting small-scale, local farming projects are our guiding principles. We also believe in the grassroots power of international exchange, and spent many years traveling and living abroad during our 20's. There's always so much we can learn from one another!
Once we discovered WorkAway (and even the youngest members of our family were able to be vaccinated), it seemed like the perfect place to start forming our community! It also happens that with a small child, not much gets during the day, so some extra helping hands would be a most welcome addition :) We want people to feel like a part of our family, and are so excited to welcome you to our home and help you explore our beautiful little corner of the world.

Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten
We live in a very typical and picturesque New England town, located in the foothills of Mount Monadnock. The region is famous for locally produced artisan products. Both Danny and Emily have traveled extensively throughout the world and are always looking for ways to build on cultural exchange, Danny works full-time at home as a software developer, and most recently, Emily was working as an International Student Advisor at a local university. Together we speak French and Spanish, and would love to raise our daughter to be bilingual (or trilingual!).

We have a neverending workload here, so we're happy to let you explore your own interests and follow your expertise. The work needs depend largely on the season, of course. Some examples of ongoing projects include: land reclamation, firewood stacking, tree pruning, small outdoor building projects (chicken coop, outdoor oven, woodshed), indoor DIY projects (demo work, bathroom addition, painting), sheep care, gardening, childcare, etc etc.
Spanisch: Gute Kenntnisse
Dieser Gastgeber bietet Sprachaustausch an
We are always open and love learning new languages. And now that we have our baby, that is especially true, as we want her to be exposed to as much diversity as possible.
We are currently building an apartment above our garage space that has a separate entrance from the rest of the house. Anyone is welcome to stay there, but it may need some work to get it feeling very cozy. Most of the work on it has been done already, but it does still need finishing touches. For anyone wishing to stay in the mainhouse where we live, we have an extra bedroom, and a finished attic space that guests can choose from. We would love to host anyone for shared family dinners in the evenings, although breakfast and lunch are typically much less formal for us.
Was noch ...
Our area, and state for that matter, are known for its pristine outdoors. We live 10 minutes outside of the city Keene, which is home to a few colleges and has many restaurants and shopping. This is a great area to cycle, hike, rock climb, and kayak. We are also located very close to the state of Vermont, and about 2 hours from NYC, Boston, Providence, and Maine. We would be happy to lend you a car with enough notice. Public transportation is available, although rather limited.
