  • Help


    We like to create a friendly and creative environment and offer free meals and accommodations in exchange for 4 - 5 hours a day (5 days a week) help on various farm projects.

    Projects include sustainable development, solar energy, gardening, harvest, fencing, pruning, taking care of horses, holistic approach to animals, old fashioned building practices, various workshops in nature as well as artist in residence.

    We will not ask workaways to help with any workshops along side paying guests. Our workaway help will be concentrated during off season periods so the workaways could stay in actual guest accommodations and participate in programs when there are no paying guests. All our programs will always be led by one of the actual specialists working in the farm and will not include physically dangerous tasks. We will always provide supervision, safety train and if necessary safety equipment (such as gloves and protection glasses for such as gardening).

    We are not a profit oriented business. We love this land and we are re-investing every thing into the land to operate with best farming practices, maintain a healthy land, care for animals, and give back to our community. Workaways will not be required to participate in any commercial activity that would benefit the farm owners directly.

    Only if the pets are comfortable with other animals, especially dogs and the horses of the farm. Gardens and pool side are limited to dogs.
