Currently we only accept stays of eight weeks or longer due to Covid. We Will host positive, and energetic people who share our vision of healthy food, healthy living, happy animals and sustainability, and who are interested to learn about animal care and how to farm in a community setting.
Our farm includes dairy goats, free-range laying chickens, and a small herd of Black Angus Cattle. We will teach you anything that needs to be done on a farm including soap making. Due to the relatively mild winter, our cultural and educational learning continues year round, especially since our goats give birth from December through May.
We do not allow illegal drugs and we do not accept smokers, pets or children.
Stipends may be available to those who are able to commit for a minimum stay of six months or longer.
Per US regulations we may offer employees only (with legal work visa) at least minimum wage for the hours worked.
Experience the life on a truly working family farm, learn where your food comes from and how to reduce your foot print on planet earth. Learn to live with the land instead of against it.
