  • Description


    I am a 20-year homesteader, growing organic food. I have 7 goats, 12 hens, 2 cats, lots of honeybees, and four greenhouses. This is a beautiful high desert enviroment surrounded by nature; 35 miles to the nearest city. Opportunity to learn beekeeping, vegetable and medicinal herb growing, goat care, dairy processing and more. Looking for short-term help with basic farm chores. All buildings were hand built. Homesteading skills and land setup can be learned here also. . No drama please.Light alcohol drinking o.k. but no alcohol dependent people please.

    The work will be weeding, milking goats, building projects, beekeeping, harvesting vegetables and general farm chores.
    The work is hard at times ,so what i need is self motivated hard working people. Please be honest with yourself and me and don't come if you don't like doing hard work in the hot sun.
