The mission of our farm is to teach people how to be healthy through good nutrition, exercise, relationships, and a healthy lifestyle. We also provide healthy food for our customers and show them how to prepare it. We have a large garden and small CSA, we make maple syrup, we grow corn, soybeans, wheat, spelt and hay and we raise chickens for eggs, and grass-fed beef. We mill the wheat into flour and corn into cornmeal. We have a sawmill and make our own lumber. We have lots of events including maple sugaring open house, mushroom hunts, and fall festivals. We do other special events including hayrides, retreats, and weddings. We have finished our cabin at the lake and it is open for visitors and events.

Please read the entire profile as it concerns 2 properties.

Looking for a caregiver for my father, who is 97 and has dementia. Accommodations are a private room in a shared house. This is a historic building, a converted church, built in 1829. He has 2 caregivers, but they cannot be there all the time, so I need someone who can fill in for the times they aren't there. My father mostly needs help with preparing meals and making sure he doesn't wander or fall. There is no lifting required. Helpers must be able to commit to at least a one month stay.

I also own a farm, which consists of 23 secluded acres of woods and fields bordered by a river, situated outside a small town. There is a large organic vegetable/herb/berry garden and perennial beds, an orchard, chickens, 2 horses and 3 cats. I strive to practice low-input, regenerative farming and gardening techniques. No chemicals are used here.

Helpers who are interested are welcome to spend time on the farm as well. It's a... more inside

Are you drawn the forest? Good at organization? Look no further!!

UPDATE! Our current needs are:

-Someone experienced with carpentry and power tools to replace the roof on a small 6x7 outbuilding before snow arrives. No ladders needed. Please see the photos below. Itís not going to last another winter without help and I donít want to lose it! Also some stone work needs attention and there is a fallen tree to cut up but those are not as urgent as saving the pump house.

-Someone experienced with a sewing machine to alter some vintage drapes and finish up a few other small curtain projects. Bring your own machine or see if you can get one of mine to work.

-Someone to help organize a large inventory of antiques to be sold. More details on this position below.

Two guest rooms available NOW. One room is large enough for a couple or friends traveling together, one is just right for one.

If you canít come right away, please consider/schedule a stay with us on t... more inside

We are currently in search of a live in nanny/au pair (female preferred) especially for the winter months (November-April). Duties would include about 3 hours of babysitting per day, maybe some help with homeschooling and possibly some other help around the house (cooking, cleaning etc). We're looking for someone who will be actively engaged with our children while watching them and someone who enjoys both indoor and outdoor activities (including lots of playing in the snow even when its cold out). Depending on qualifications and length of stay, in addition to room and board, we may be able to offer a modest stipend which could be negotiable.

We can host visitors from May-October for general homestead infrastructure work including, gardening, building, firewood etc.

Mission Statement:

We aspire to live simple and healthy lives in a family oriented community setting. Our goal is to reconnect to our means of existence by meeting our needs with land based local economy. We al... more inside

Fixing up a historic four-bedroom house from 1912.
This is a live-in fixer-upper--i.e., it has all the basics (plumbing, electricity, doors, roof) in place, and I'm gradually fixing/restoring all aspects of it, including gut renovations of some sections, and cosmetic improvements all around. I'm occasionally renting one bedroom on airbnb. Need help painting, cleaning, stripping old paint with a heat gun, plastering, electrical, tiling/grouting...you name it, it's needed!

Also interested in establishing a raised-bed garden in back yard. While i have some gardening experience from my youth, I have never worked with raised beds, and would be glad for both physical assistance and advice in this regard.

If you're interested in such projects--and especially if you have any particular skills that could be applied here--I'd be glad to discuss further with you. Detroit is an amazing place--a vibrant city that's a once and future king among world cities!

***Full up for 2017! Apply soon for Spring 2018!***Our rural retirement dream located in the beautiful Missouri Ozarks is just minutes from the Ozark National Scenic Riverways featuring the Jack's Fork, Current, and Eleven Point Rivers, and the Black River and Clearwater Lake are also nearby. Great fishing and kayaking are available nearly all year. We are surrounded by privately held woodland and the Mark Twain National Forest, featuring miles and miles of beautiful country roads and hiking trails, including sections of the Ozark Trail. Helpers at our little farm can expect bountiful scenic beauty to take away the sting of chores, and plenty of free time to explore. We need immediate help with farmhouse renovations and various outdoor chores. For the present, I am on my own here at the farm while my husband is working at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., so I am looking for female helpers only, or possibly a couple, to help me keep things under control and get ahead on a few proje... more inside

We are a young family living on the south side of Chicago. Laura is a high school art teacher and Cory is a community organizer. We have a baby boy, Bayard, born January 2015. In 2012/2013 Cory and I traveled the world, and did helpX along the way. We loved our experiences and would like to provide a similar experience for fellow travelers.

We just bought our first home and need some help getting settled in. We have a few painting projects and some small construction projects we would like to get underway. We also need help with day to day things, like cooking, doing some deep cleaning, organizing our stuff, and other odd jobs. We both work full time outside of the house, so we need helpers who are independent and can start and finish jobs on their own with little instruction. Let us know if this is you.

We are expecting a second baby in February of 2018 and need some help getting ready. We have rooms to re arrange, and would love help making meals to freeze.
