Carin and George are in the Sixth year of planting grapes for their organic winery. In three years time we hope to market the wine produced with juice from grapes grown using organic science.We have 7 acres dedicated to grapes, gardens and a small forest plot. Much of our food is provided by the gardens and what George harvests hunting. During the spring summer and fall we depend on volunteer help to keep up with weeding ,pruning and harvesting. After work we have a pool and hot tub for relaxation. George plays the mandolin and sings. We enjoy board and card games in the evening.
If you come to help you will have a comfortable bed and eat three good meals a day with the family. Carin enjoys teaching people how to bake and make preserves. George will teach you how to operate equipment and power tools.
We enjoy life and try to maintain a stress free environment.
