We like to grow, sell, and share nutritious fruits and vegetables. We participate in a food sharing network through a gleaner club and a local community center. We really could use some help in the garden now that things are growing fast.
We have a 2000 sq.ft. greenhouse, acres of blackberries, and several fruit and nut trees. We also have about 2 dozen chickens, and 4 brush goats. The farm is organic in practice, but not certified. We do ask our visitors to help us out with the yard and garden, and related maintainance projects, as they are able, for about 4-5 hrs/day on 5 days during the week.
Food is provided, cooking is usually shared among the visitors. Sleeping facilities are bunk-beds in shared bedrooms in an older colorful (and a bit messy) mobile home that serves as our guest house. The kitchen/living room operate as dorm-style common areas. A trove of interesting treasures have accumulated from past visitors. We generally have about 4-6 visitor helpers at any one time. Unfortunately, we cannot take folks with pets or who are under 21. Wifi is available.
We are located on 62 acres several miles from the nearest towns. We like to call it half fields, half woods, 2 creeks, a pond, and a view of MT. Hood. Our fields are farmed naturally by 3rd generation farmer neighbors via various methods of no chemical, responsible farming. We utilize some permaculture techniques and sow, tend and harvest mostly by hand. The woods are mostly left to nature, but there are a variety of trails for exploration.
