We are a family of three, sometimes more when you add in transient friends and family. We live on a beautiful and secluded 20 acre property. It is a sunny south aspect with a stunning view. We like to play, fish forage, and farm. Our property serves as the local ski hill in the winter and we are a self sustained farm in the summer. Between the trail building, gardening and animal care we are pretty busy most the time and could sure use a hand!

We are a family that subsists off the land, we fish, forage and live off the land. If you are interested in what life is like in Alaska then this is a great place to visit. Any workaways that come here will be welcomed as part of our family, they will learn how to cook wild Alaska cuisine, smoke fish, preserve food.
We would like a hand Monday through Friday, 5 hours a day. Weekends are free to play. We will provide lodging and meals and transportation. Attitude is most important, more important than skills! Be prepared to be outside most the time and physically capable to do gardening and animal care. We would love help building a new goat yard, harvesting our garden, preserving food, chopping firewood and building a sauna. We are also interested in anyone who has teaching skills, as this new school year begins a tutor would be very helpful for our two daughters ages 8 and 13.
There are a few options for accommodations. We have a large Aframe building with tents set up on the third floor and we also have a camperised bus. There is a cook out building close to your accommodations and a full kitchen for eating family style in the main house.
There are many beautiful sights in Haines in fact it is one of the most beautiful places in Southeast Alaska. There are many mountain trails, access to the ocean and trails right out our back door. Our property is 35 miles out of town and we will provide opportunities to go into town or on other adventures. It is worth mentioning that Haines is not an easy place to get to and before you commit to the idea of coming here go online a research h the journey. Once you get to Juneau you travel here via ferry or a Alaska Seaplanes which has a fleet of small airplanes. If you are still up for the adventure and not daunted by the travel then contact us and we will see if you would make a good fit!
