We are a small family farm located in Corvallis Oregon. We are looking for help all year. Individuals, couples and travelers are welcome. We are close to town, and close to the forest, right on the Willamette River. We are first generation farmers, learning how to take care of the land and feed ourselves. We are a vegan farm. We have cats and dogs but no livestock animals. We enjoy sharing lots of meals. Most of us are in our 20's and 30's. Its a short bike ride to downtown or college campus. We like to take trips to the mountains to go camping and visit hotsprings. Portland is 1.5hrs away and we go there usually once or twice a week for business or parties:) We also love to visit our property on the coast 1 hour away.
We have hosted atleast a dozen workawayers so far and had great experiences. We have met some incredible people from all over the world. Some have even found long term work/living arrangements here:) We look forward to meeting many more intrepid travelers in the years to come!

We have a strong sense of community here. We value art and music. We practice a vegan lifestyle. We love animals. We like to have small gatherings with good food, and music, and fire.
We have many projects going on the farm. We have around 5 people living here and another 10 people that come here for work. We are looking for help handling the extra tasks that come up as a new and expanding farm. We are attempting to expand from 2 acres to the full 10 acres of our property this year. This involves putting in acres of fruit trees, vegetables, and hemp plants! Some areas we expect to need help with include: gardening duties, manual help, food preservation, cleaning/organizing, data collection, and soil building. We also encourage everyone to find their strength and be creative with the ways they contribute. Art and music are definitely appreciated here. Murals are encouraged! We take food seriously so chefs are always welcome. We always gather around the dinner table and group (vegan) meals are a great way to contribute daily.
Update for 2020: Current Projects include gardening vegetables, weeding, transplanting, pruning. Helping with our new 5 acre hemp crop! Construction projects like building tool shed, greenhouses and compost center. House chores like cooking and cleaning. We have lots of space and supplies for making art and murals.
Please let us know what your interests are and we will try to find something fulfilling for you!
We are a newer farm but we are well equipped for seasonal fluctuations of workers. We have beds set up in the house and a travel trailer for guests. Depending on time commitment we can arrange private rooms or camping spots. We like to focus on all the aspects of communal living and love a full house:) Just let us know what you're into! We try to eat communal meals together and encourage everyone to cook and share food. All vegan. We have separate area for guests to store and prepare animal products.
We are lucky to live in a secluded setting but just a couple miles from town. Corvallis and Oregon State University are just a few minutes away. We are also in close proximity to plenty of hiking trails and natural attractions.
