    The farm is a permaculture inspired 38-acres located about an hour southeast of Dallas. The property has a beautiful 6-acre lake to be enjoyed by everyone. I strive for sustainability in closing loops to reduce our overall waste. I have a garden, fruit tree orchard, a flock of dorper sheep, milk cow, ducks and chickens. There’s no shortage of need for helping hands as we work the land. And if you have other experiences or ideas, I love to hear about them too!
    Currently on the farm, most of my efforts involve tending to the animals. I milk and feed twice a day and rotationally graze the flock of sheep. Recently our projects included building Joel Salatin style chicken tractors which I'm very excited about. I plan to plant several fruit trees in January and February.
    My expectation is that workawayers will be respectful of the host, each other and the farm. Accommodations include a bunk room with two twin beds and private bath. I am also open to camping. Transportation can be provided from the Dallas area. Specific pickup details can be discussed with me. As always you can also drive yourself. I speak English and am open to pets on an approval basis. If you have children please reach out to discuss more details.
    My goal for the farm is to one day be completely self-sufficient and I am slowly moving towards this goal! Milk, eggs, meat and produce are currently produced at the farm. I can accommodate pretty much all types of diets supplementing farm produce with grocery. Please bring any dietary preferences to my attention.
    I am looking forward to workawayers interested in sustainable, organic farming while sharing in a fun collective experience!
