Family farm / homestead on 20 acres in beautiful mendocino county. We are about 3 hours north of San Francisco and 25 minutes from the Mendocino coast. We are a family of four I am a teacher and my husband is a handy man jack of all trades. We have two children ages 4 and 8, as well as two dogs and to cats. We also raise chickens and pigs. We plant a large vegetable garden each spring and like to preserve and can foods in the fall. We are also hoping to add bees and cows to the farm this year! Lots of projects, lots of work, lots of fun!
We offer a laid back friendly work experience. We are knowledgeable on gardening and homesteading projects. We are self sufficient and environmentally conscious. We provide a homecooked dinner, and groceries for breakfast and lunch. We also take the time to teach and explain as we work.
We are looking for volunteers who can help in the garden, do general work around the property such as brush clearing and raking , some cleaning of chicken coop, some light building projects etc.
Volunteers can stay in our barn apartment there is a king sized bed and a full sized bed. Downstairs there is a rustic kitchen and bathroom.
Nearby are some wonderful beaches and river spots. We are in the redwood forest so lots of trails and hikes to explore.
