  • Descrição


    We are a regenerative agriculture cattle ranch along the Coeur D'Alene River. We raise grass fed and finished beef, raise pigs and chickens and ducks on pasture in the summer, and run a girls summer camp in July, in addition to hosting summer weddings. We don't use any synthetic inputs, make a lot of compost for our pastures, and focus on minimizing consumption of non renewable energy and material sources and maximizing the natural health of our ecosystem.
    We have a large garden, 8 horses, a dairy cow and 2 dairy goats, 100 blueberry bushes and a raspberry orchard that provides the food for everyone at the ranch. All of our meat we also raise and everything is raised following organic principles.
    We eat really well.

    'We' is Jordan, Albert and their three young kids. Jordan and Albert participated in WWOOFing in New Zealand and love hosting people from around the world. We've been to every continent except Antarctica and have been to all 50 US states, but our travelling has slowed down considerably, like to zero, since having a 3rd kid so we are hoping some of the world will come to us.
    We are hard working, but open minded and easy going and are very passionate about regenerative agriculture. People of all races, ages, and sexual orientation are welcome.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We generally let people spend the first week getting the feel of the place and then help them identify what role they'll excel in based on their passions and predisposition. You'll have the opportunity to learn about homesteading and enjoy the company of people passionate about regenerative agriculture and have fun experiencing the joy of a life surrounded by animals.
    One of the biggest benefits of working at the ranch? The food. You'll eat like a queen/king/sultan/etc.
    There are LOTS of opportunities to go horse back riding and work with if that's your jam.

    We only use help from work away volunteers in our personal garden and for help with our homestead animals. In the Spring and early summer most of the work revolves around working in our personal homestead garden. We use organic, no till methods and in May and June we’re finishing planting. We also enjoy talking to people about the regenerative pasture work we do and how grazing animals are an important part of the ecosystem/sustainable land management. Starting in June we get to start enjoying and harvesting first strawberries, then raspberries and then blueberries start at the end of summer. There’s lots of harvesting and preserving to be done for our personal winter use and lots of good fresh food to be enjoyed. We also have a milk cow and goat for use in our kitchen and interested volunteers can learn to milk and make cheese.

    A typical day involves morning and evening homestead chores (milking our cow or goat, moving animals on pastures, and harvesting from the garden) and one additional project for the day (could be animal, garden, ranch, or kitchen related). When it's hot in the afternoons we find some shade, relax, and swim or float down the river.

    We have a small, but clean and comfortable room off the barn and additional accommodation in canvas wall tents with a queen size bed.

    In addition to having clean, indoor bathrooms, we have a lovely outdoor shower setup with hot water. A hot shower outside under a billion stars will change the way you look at showering.
    All of the meals are family style and you will help with prep and cleanup. The food is good, very good.

    We are relatively remote with little public transit, though we are only 50 minutes by car from the good size city of C'oeur D'Alene. If you don't have your own car, someone is usually going to town every other day or so and can give you a lift. That said, if you need to go to town all the time, this may not be the place for you.
    We are in the Coeur D'Alene Mountains on the Idaho/Montana border in a relatively wild area. There are limitless outdoor activities and we have 3/4 mile of Coeur D'Alene River frontage. If you like to hike, horseback ride, fly fish, explore, this is the place for you. If you like malls, sidewalks, and 'inside time', this may not be a great fit ;)

    Would probably only work if you have your own space (like a camper van) for using the internet, or if the downstairs room in our house is available, which it isn’t always.

    Open to certain pets but we definitely have restrictions and have had trouble in The past with dogs chasing livestock or killing chickens, so we’re cautious and would need to talk about it.
