We have a small organic farm on the Montana and British Columbia borders in Northern Idaho, where we have been specializing in growing the finest garlic varieties in the world for over 20 years. We have a thriving online store and shipping business serving thousands of customers year-round. We have travelled the world and found, besides ourselves, two other growers providing the best, cleanest, most pristine environment to grow garlic in. We import this garlic and ship it through our online store so people can have the healthiest garlic in all times of the year. We are the only business in the world doing this, and we desperately need help spreading the word. Also, We have a garden, orchard, and many other green spaces to care for and improve. We collect seeds of plants native to the northwest and distribute them to conscious businesses throughout the region. We annually have a large building project or two to improve the farm. We derive most all of our materials from the farm, or sources that are very close. We have a gorgeous playground surrounding us in nature from mountains to rivers to waterfalls to just about anything else you could want to play in the outdoors.
Our goal is to bring the people of the world the best seed garlic available, so they can grow their own. For our customers who can not or don't grow themselves, we aim to provide the healthiest and freshest medicinal garlic in the world. In order to do this we must travel to maintain relationships with our co-operative growers in other countries providing garlic to us in times of the year when ours is not at its peak freshness and highest medicinal quality.
DIY and building projects
We are looking for someone to Help us share with the world what we do via the web and social media while giving them a very nice place to live. While we are away, you will be in charge of the farm, and while we are here, you will have the opportunity to work as much or as little as you want. We have a thriving organic farming community located in a pristine environment where you can explore the rocky mountains in your time off. We work very hard, but play a lot as well, so there will be a lot of free time to explore. In the winter there are several ski hills close by, and in the summer, there are many lakes, hot springs, and rivers nearby, as well as several cool and funky towns. We look to pay an honest and fair wage to a qualified person that can not only help us maintain, but grow our business.
If you plan on helping, depending on the time of year you stay, you will learn animal husbandry, methods of organic and biodynamic gardening and farming, including no-till farming. You will learn about the local nature, and how it influences our decisions here on the farm. We will cook amazing organic meals full of vitality that you can participate in the preparation of. We are predominantly vegetarian but do eat some meat.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
First and foremost, we are looking for someone to help us develop our web presence and social media platform. We are struggling to introduce how important what we do is to the world. We have had a web presence for some time; however, our business is struggling to grow though there is much room to do so. We all have many skills and trades in order to run this dynamic and diverse farm/business, but a willingness to learn our successful system is the most important skill you will need. Organic farming methods, and computer literacy will be very important but not necessary.
We have a very quaint and cozy guest cabin fully equipped with everything you need, ( electricity, a bed, wood stove, internet, kitchen, and an outhouse). This year we plan on building a barn with another more handsome guest quarters and an amazing view above it. Meals will be taken together except for breakfast where we will provide you with essentials in your own kitchen.
There are many opportunities for fun here with Canada right up the road, Sandpoint just down the road, Montana, a stones throw away, and the big city of Spokane just a couple of hours away.
