  • Description

    Description

    We have a small family farm in northern New Mexico, located at 7600 feet in the southern part of the Rocky Mountains. We have dairy goats, chickens, two dogs, three cats, and a large home garden in which we grow food, process it and preserve it for our own self sufficiency. Our home is a 10 minute walk to the village of Arroyo Seco and a 15 minute drive to Taos. We are also a few minutes drive to hiking trails in the mountains. Interests include hiking, gardening, sustainable living, cooking, baking and cheese making, making body-care products, skiing, art, music, literature, and culture.
    We are a married couple who are now empty nesters as our children (ages 19 and 21) have gone off on their own adventures.

    We are committed to a healthy and sustainable home. Non-smokers only please.

    We enjoy spending time with people from other areas of the world and sharing a bit of our lives in Taos.

    In the winter, the chores involves taking care of the animals, milking goats, and maintenance projects around the farm. In the warm season, we additionally work in the garden and process the produce to preserve it for winter. We invite our work away guests to help in the kitchen preparing food, making cheese and bread, and cleaning up.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are very close to hiking in the nearby mountains and the Rio Grande Gorge and a short walk to the village Arroyo Seco that has a cafe, organic grocery store, and youth hostel.

    Taos is in a remote part of New Mexico. It is difficult to get here if you don't have your own transportation. There is some public transportation from Albuquerque, but it's not great.

    We own a business in Taos where we can meet Work Away guests and drive them to our home in Arroyo Seco.
