  • Description

    Description

    We are a small group of diverse individuals that enjoy constant change and encourage you and others to come, grow, and go as you please. Highlighted below are some ways to get involved in our vision. If you have a different idea that doesn’t fall within the confines of our initial thoughts or plans, please reach out, this is an ever evolving process and we are open to new ideas.

    We are an agritourism farm, hosting guests and events all throughout the season, so in addition to our normal farm work you will get to enjoy intermingling with our guests by showing them around and enjoying their company.

    Feeding folks is a large part of what we do, so if you are looking to expand your kitchen skills with farm fresh food, we are most definitely the place for you!

    Here is a list of our 2019 Events thus far:
    Music Festival June 13th-17th
    Weddings: June 26th-28th ,July 11th-15th,July 25th-28th


    We host campers almost daily and provide these folks with opportunities to get in on projects, group dinners, pilates, canoe trips, wine tours and good company.

    Building projects to get in on:
    Composting Toilets
    Outdoor Shower
    New Barn

    Forest Work:
    We are working on rehabilitating our forest as well as providing appropriate space for foot traffic, which includes thinning and milling wood for building, propagating useful plants to add to the forest and blackberry and other materials that inhibit the growth of existing life.

    And yes there are goats! So you will have a great opportunity to learn about animal husbandry as well as processing milk and using for additional items like soap and cheese.

    We are also looking for folks to help out with the promotional piece. So if you like organizing events or want to use your photography, website design or othe PR skills let us know!

    In a nutshell, you get a spot to live for your trade or work, in return you put forth a minimum of 20 hours a week of work into a current project or farming. Length of stay can be arranged during meet and greet. We offer both food and accommodation in return for the help that you will provide us. Communal meals are participatory but are strongly encouraged. There are two kitchens for guests use if you would like to prepare any thing for the community or yourself. Toiletries and detergents will be provided as well. We look forward to meeting you!
