We hope to sell some of our extra at a local farmers market and to can a good but for the upcoming winter. There is lots to do and we would welcome some great help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a working family in Montana, a place different from most other places in the states. It is in a more northern climate, rural, beautiful and full of interesting mountain adventures. If you are looking for a beautiful location to volunteer and learn in, this is the spot. Not only will you be learning from what we already have going on at the farm, but you will be learning alongside us. we also have access to FREE english lessons if you are looking to improve your English.

    We live in a large 6 Bedroom/4 bath house in which a Workaway will have their own space and privacy. The view from our front window is of the lovely Elkhorn Mountains. You can see for about 30 miles in three directions. You will have your own room and bathroom. We want you to eat with us, be a part of our family, and enjoy good table conversation.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We want our workaways to be a part of our family while they are here. We ask that they participate in the things that we do as if they are a part of our family. Smoking is not encouraged. We do love good beer though and you can expect to visit some phenomenal breweries with us, if you like beer. I also enjoy making beer. This is all part of the cultural experience we offer at the Farm.
    We are about 15 minutes outside of Helena and public transportation is not available. Between my wife and I we go into Helena daily. Non-native English speakers have enjoyed a free English class in Helena in the past. Aside from that there are lots of activities in Helena you can enjoy. Hiking, indoor and outdoor soccer league, biking, fishing, floating the Missouri River and much more.
    We are about 3 hours from Yellowstone and 4 from Glacier National Park, during the summer we often find a way to get our Workawayers to the parks. Aside from these places, mountains, lakes and rivers, surround us offering endless areas to explore.
    We have been doing Workaway since 2015. We have meet many super wonderful people and hope to meet more in the future. Take a moment and read what some of our Workaway friends have to say about their time with us. Hope to see you soon. Blessings!!
