We are an easy going couple that enjoys the outdoors including motorcycling trips during the summer months. We are looking for help with building raised garden beds, starting the organic vegetable gardens, help in the flower garden, and possibly assisting with some work on the cabin that will become the farm stall (needs new floor and ceiling). We lead a quiet life but do enjoy socializing with friends and neighbors over dinner or a BBQ. We are originally from South Africa, but have lived in the USA for the past 26 years.
We recently moved our cats, small dog, and ourselves, to our magical 7 acre small farm in Beulah, Colorado, to get out of the rat-race of Denver, and have many projects that we are working on at this amazing property. Mike is a beekeeper and we are planning on expanding the number of hives we have. We keep chickens for eggs. We are building raised beds in which we will grow organic vegetables and plan on selling the honey, vegetables and eggs at our soon-to-be farm stall on the corner of the property.
Come and join us in this beautiful valley where you can breath fresh air, enjoy the openness and help us create an organic garden.
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Learn about beekeeping, help us build organic vegetable gardens, flower gardening, raising chickens and much more in a farming community that is in the heart of Colorado.
Apply your skills where you can to help with organic gardening, building raised garden beds, learn about beekeeping, help with the chickens, revamping a small cabin that will become a farm stall, and general help around the property. Work 4 days per week for half a day, and spend the rest of the time adventuring or just simply relaxing! We can pick you up from surrounding areas as there is no public transportation to Beulah. We are flexible on the volunteer hours - for example 3 full days vs 5 half days etc so that you can explore beautiful Colorado.

Lovely independent cottage on the property - one bedroom, bathroom, living room, full kitchen, finished attic. Comfortably furnished with a queen size bed. Will provide our guests with continental breakfast and other items for self-catering.
Beulah is a beautiful agricultural community surrounded by the Wet Mountains. 20 minutes from Pueblo and in close proximity to other smaller Colorado towns like Rye and Colorado City. Lots of great hikes and cycling routes. Come and enjoy the peace and quite of the valley, and relax next to the bubbling stream that runs through our property. We will enjoy taking our visitors to local attractions that are all within about a 2 hour drive: Bishops Castle, Westcliffe, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Salida, Cripple Creek, Royal Gorge, and much more. We are surrounded by national parks and have camping equipment that we are happy to lend to guests.
The ideal visitor would be a non-smoker and someone who too enjoys the quiet that the community offers. They would also need to be respectful of our cottage and keep it clean. If they have woodworking or agricultural skills, it would be a huge plus.
