Help me with animals and enjoy the enchanting Coltsfoot Valley, Connecticut, USA



 Min stay requested: No minimum



  • Description


    Looking for Summer 2024 volunteers!
    The barn renovations are done and the cows are coming back this spring.

    No remote working situations please.

    You will be able to enjoy life at a slower pace. The ultimate goal is to celebrate life every single day. :)

    Positioned at the head of the valley and the end of Cornwall Village, the farm is an brand new farm that produces cheese organically and sustainably. Note that we are just starting out and We do not currently sell any of our cheese at this time. You will be enjoying the natural pace of life while working, eating and celebrating in life together. I ( Tommy - dairy farmer/cheesemaker) traveled for 2-3 years in Europe through Workaway. My experiences inspired me to start my own farm, and live a life that was shown to me by farmers throughout the mountains of Italy. No experience needed except for a desire to work hard and enjoy our time together. If you prefer to spend time on your computer or phone, please look elsewhere. :)

    "Every land has it's own special rhythm and unless the traveler takes time to learn the rhythm, he or she will remain an outsider." - Juliette de Baïracli Levy
