We have a 27 acre property in the Hudson Valley, 2 hrs N of NYC. We have six vacation rentals on our property. We also have a good number of animals; 3 horses, a flock of chicken, goats, bunnies, kittens, cats and 4 dogs. We have a large vegetable garden and put away food for the winter. I am a builder, horseman and hydraulic repairman.

We are looking for volunteers for at least two weeks to a month or more.
We are also looking for a couple that would want to live with us for a year or more and help run our business.

We look forward to hearing about you!

The primary work is preparing/cleaning of the accommodations, but work may also include: cooking breakfast for the guests, organizing pizza parties, showing guests around the farm, gardening, care of the small animals and baking pies and bread.

Where we live is a paradise, beautiful land, quiet and somewhat remote. You can bike or walk 1-3 miles to great places to swim, a wine shop, a farm market and wifi cafe, a small grocery store, two antique shops and a local historical museum. If you have more endurance you can bike further to several other towns. We have bikes you can use or we will give you a ride. New Paltz is 25 minutes from us, Woodstock 40 minutes, there are taxis that will take you to these and other towns if we are not able to drive you.

We enjoy meeting new people and there are always a steady flow as our vacation rentals and long term renters are all interested in sharing ideas and a bottle of wine by a big bonfire. We have wonderful dinners and often these turn into impromptu parties that go into the night. You will have a lot of fun here!

Vacationers sometimes leave tips for our volunteers, an added bonus!
