We are a married couple with a young son learning to farm, focusing on following intuition and flow, living simply and inexpensively and making a Living rather than merely money.

We live off the utility grid, using limited solar power, wood heat, outdoor propane shower, and a nice composting outhouse. We offer a vintage 1950s 2-bedroom mobile home, a 1970 RV, an insulated 8x16 ice fishing shack, or perhaps an 8x8 pallet fort shack as options for guests to sleep in.

We are looking for helpers to assist with harvesting, planting, weeding, mulching, building, etc in exchange for good food and a place to stay - as well as the experience of taking part in this experiment in alternative living and organic farming! It's a busy life but a wonderful one.

The farm is a mile from the beautiful Saint Croix River and just over an hour from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul in Minnesota. A neighbor often needs help with his grape vineyard and pays cash, so you could possibly make some money while you're here.

We farm organic veggies primarily, with some chickens and fruit trees/bushes for our personal consumption. We do a lot of foraging and canning as well. We run a small CSA (~20 members), and sell at a couple local farmers markets. We grow a wide variety of vegetables, as well as some fruit and log-cultivated shiitake mushrooms.

We strive to become as self sufficient as possible on our farm, growing food, avoiding expenses, bartering with like minded people, and gently getting as free from the matrix of standard materialist mainstream operations as we can.
