    Description

    Hello Workawayers, we run a small scale organic farm in the countryside of southern part in Korea. After having to live as a busy city-dweller, we began farming in the countryside, aspiring for a happier life. We practice Korean traditional organic farming, which is high-mix low-volume production. Also, We deal and communicate directly with the consumers.

    We started organic farming in 2005 in Jeolabukdo Jangsu, and moved to rural village near a beautiful old city Gyeongju in 2018. We still farm organically. In addition we started running an organic farmer's school in Gyeongju and share our organic farming knowledge that have accumulated over 14 years.

    Farming could be hard, but the joy of working in such a beautiful scenery and clean air is worth everything. With you, We are happy to enjoy sightseeing and hang out with neighbors after work. During winter we often travel abroad like you, so we'd love to share stories as a travelers as well.

    We always welcome those who like nature, farming, and traveling.


    The help depends on which season you come...(below)

    SPRING: Add compost to the field, weeding, seeding, harvesting wild vegetables,
    making tea, planting potatoes, Chinese cabbage, harvesting broccoli, etc.

    SUMMER: Growing, harvesting, and packing tomato, potato, cabbage, garlic, lettuce, broccoli, herb, etc.

    FALL: Growing, harvesting, and packing peanut, sweet potato, corn, soy bean, cauliflower, egg plant, herbs, etc.
