  • Description

    Description

    hello!
    we are a family of four, hiding out in the hills of southern oregon while our youngest members make their way through early childhood without the burden of media and its devotees. one friend refers to us as new american revolutionaries while another calls our place redneck neverland. our necks are nowhere nearly as red as we intended since neither of us has managed to give up our secret identities as designer and pilot to be the true modern homesteaders we moved here with intentions of nearly eight years ago, but the projects have certainly mounted in that time, nonetheless. we are currently in the midst of organic gardening and extended infrastructure for more, small orchard, forestry stewardship, roadbuilding, home remodeling, fence building, pond-building, swale scheming, barn raising, cobb playhouse constructing, treehouse building, and various other interests too numerous to mention, with constant interloping crazy-art-installation interludes. our kids are vibrant all-things-enthusiasts who could always use an infusion of foreign language / foreign dance / foreign culture, and anything amazing, intense, interesting and joy-filled. kindness and safely are the only tenants of our family. if those requirements are met, nearly all else goes. we love ebullient intellects and hearty celebration.

    Help

    our days are filled with a plethora of diverse efforts towards completion of our listed projects as well as homeschooling, art making, food concocting, and various other recreational and educational diversions. our actions in your presence would gladly incorporate your skills and interests, as well as sharing any of ours which are of interest to you. music and storytelling are always welcome, as well as any other creative pursuits. multitasking is not frowned upon. festive non-tasking is also not frowned upon as long as it is not accompanied by a sense of arrogant entitlement. kids are welcome. their job here, for the most part, will be to be kids. again, kindness and safety rule the roost.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    we have various options for short term stays... a small one-room guest house can sleep a family [or close group] of four or five easily, it includes a small studio kitchen unit and a full bathroom, with wrap-around deck [complete with slides to kids play area / trampoline]; nearly infinite camping spots in the forest, the pastures or the garden with outhouse access or bear-style commode; rustic caravans and a garden shed with bunk beds round out the spectrum. ALL afford access to pristine nature and beautiful clear night skies in all directions. impromptu bonfires are not uncommon in the late-night hours.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    we are about 20 minutes drive from ashland and jacksonville, 15 from talent and medford, and 10to12 from phoenix/south medford [it's only about 3miles walk to the nearest bus stop, but a rugged wilderness trek, indeed]. a car is a strong asset here, though entirely not necessary if you are happy to join our schedule of comings and goings to town[s]. we are happy to accommodate you with rides to your preferred destinations if you present yourselves as strong assets to our time spent here at home.
