Welcome! The core of what we do is use the therapeutic and intuitive qualities of animals to heal humans with our equine and farm therapy programs. We also breed horses and rescue many different types of animals. Our 20 acre farm is in rural northern Oregon. Our farm is a healing sanctuary for humans and animals.
We are located in a picturesque rural area with beautiful places to walk or ride a bike (which we have). There are many wineries within walking distance as well.
DIY and building projects
We eat dinner together every day. Veggies are always organic, meat is always as local as possible. Dinners are always home-cooked from scratch. Real food, nothing processed. Breakfast and lunch are also provided, but you have to prepare it for yourself. We have really enjoyed and appreciated the volunteers that have come to our farm and family.
We value tolerance, respect, and community. We welcome all people, no matter your sexual orientation, race, religion, gender identity, country of origin or age. We expect all volunteers to practice tolerance and respect towards others while they are here.
Projects: maintaining organic vegetable garden, maintaining and building the meditation garden, caring for the animals: feeding, giving water, cleaning, mucking stables, setting up cages for the rescue animals, socializing the animals. We could also really use help fixing things on the farm; so if you are handy, please mention it in your email. We have rabbits, chickens, ducks, llamas, cats, dogs, horses, miniature horses, goats and a pig named Stinkerbelle.
Meals and accommodation are included. We have a trailer that volunteers can live in or a room in the house, depending on availability and preference.
Helpers are needed starting November 15th, 2016. Things are always changing though, so feel free to get in touch if you think you would be a good fit. We are looking for a special volunteer to come stay long-term, for 3-4 months. We could do a trial period to see if it would work for you and for us. The start date would be in November or December.
Length of stay is negotiable, 2 months minimum preferred. People usually stay longer than they planned because they like it so much!
