Welcome to our organic farming homestead and Eco retreat nature spa! We offer you a sweet little private cabin with electricity,a bnb indoor suite or a super cool converted schoolbus with electricity, the full outdoor kitchen and outhouse and full bathroom access, we have hosted 148 helpers, have perfected the way we have guests stay here and love to make new friends. We will make you 2-3 delicious and nutritious meals per day on our beautiful one acre of retreat setting, 12 mature fruit trees, large garden, 2 greenhouses, meat chickens, laying hens, meat/laying ducks, rabbits, registered massage therapy business on site, cedar sauna, full moon gatherings, primitive skills workshops and a free range 10 yr old boy to endlessly entertain you :) we are a homesteading family that loves to cook/prepare/ferment and offer free range meats, vegan, vegetarian or raw food cuisine. a fun family to share space with :) You have to be self-motivated and work independently as we are not always around. work would be a mix of garden care, animal care, land care, housework and childcare. We provide food and private accommodation. We also have a double kayak, 2 single kayaks, fishing rods and bikes that you can borrow. We ask for 5 hours of work each day with a minimum stay of six days. We are flexible with scheduling so that you have the chance to explore the area. early starts allow for helpers to see the river, waterfalls and beaches in the afternoons.the beautiful ocean and also clean swimable river are each bike rides away and perfect for evenings on the water.

There are quite a few things to do in the area; kayaking on the ocean, hiking to a waterfall and cycling around the nearby islands. There is also a famous farmers market and waterfalls right down the road. We have cell reception and internet here too. Nearby there are many lakes and rivers, hiking and mountain-biking trails and swimming and fishing spots.

If you like to work in nature and permaculture farming, enjoy a quiet setting and want to connect with like minded folk Amethyst is awaiting :)

We prefer hosting couples as we are not around to entertain people here much .
