We enjoy sharing the skills and opportunities of a homestead lifestyle. There is much to learn for those who demonstrate interest.
We are a small homestead offering opportunities with our sheep, chickens, quail, rabbits and ducks along with tending gardens and fields and working on numerous small construction, landscape and irrigation projects.
We have two bedrooms with a number of beds. We share mealtimes with everyone taking turns cooking. If you cook you don't clean. If you don't cook, you clean.
We are in a historic area with lots to do, including visiting nearby beaches during time off.
