  • Descrição


    Curt and Linda moved to Maui in 2011 after losing their house to a Colorado forest fire. Even though "retired" they work every day, and have built a lovely organic farm and cat sanctuary. Curt is a former soft ware engineer, and Linda a nurse practitioner. We are healthy seniors. We have utilized many short and long term "Workawayers" (farm-hands) over the years to help build and maintain the property. If you want to learn about organic farming and enjoy cats, you will enjoy a stay on our farm. There are opportunities to pet and house sit for periods of time as we would like to do some traveling.

    You will learn about organic farming and taking care of cows, chickens and cats. You will be living with a group of individuals who also work on property and the care of cat sanctuary. You will have opportunities to explore the island of Maui and all that Hawaii has to offer. We can shuttle you to a nearby bus stop for day trips and provide transportation as needed for food supplies, etc. We process milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and cream cheese, that you can share. You will have access to all organic fruits and vegetables on property.

    Our Ranch is a seven and a half acre property located in Haiku on the lovely island of Maui. We grow organic vegetables, tons of fruit - avocado's, tangerines, bananas, coconuts, passion fruit, papaya, pineapple, lychee, oranges, limes and lemons. We have a milking cow and chickens - all fed organically. We also have a cat sanctuary with ~ 200 cats, most of them rescued feral kittens and cats. We are a 501(3)c non-profit.

    We are working to complete our cat sanctuary . We need help with caring for the cats, keeping all areas clean, laundry, yard maintenance, gardening, building projects and fencing.

    We do have cats in the house - up to as many as 10 so you really have to like cats to stay with us. We are rigorous about cleaning the litter boxes and keeping the house odor at a minimum. We will provide meals and/or money for you to buy groceries within a moderate budget.

    Maui is an amazing island with much to see. You will have two full days off a week to enjoy exploring the island. We tend to go to bed early - 9-10 and start our work day early - 6-7. No smoking in the house. We ask for a minimum of one month and a maximum of two months. We have good Internet access, cell phone reception can be inconsistent and we only have Net-Flix - no network TV. We enjoy sharing meals and also enjoy having people cook for us, although not required. We are not vegan or vegetarian.

    We are total cat people and our cats live in and outside of the home. They jump on the tables and sometimes leave messes on the floor. It is all in a days work. We love our cats more than our furniture. If you are grossed out by the smell and site of cat messes, this isn't the place for you. We ask you to help us clean up as a part of your work responsibilities. Don't sign up for the job if you are unable to deal with the down and dirty care of animals.

    We have one car available for the volunteers to share. You must have a valid drivers license and insurance, and fill the car with gas.

    -Boots and clothes you do not mind getting dirty
    -Hat for sun protection
    -Comfortable walking shoes
    -Reef-friendly sunscreen

    You can pack light, as all bedding and towels are provided, and there is laundry on site.
