We are two natural health practitioners and community leaders creating a sustainable farm in beautiful southeastern Arizona, on 55+ beautiful acres of rolling hills landscape.

In exchange for basic grocery staples (restocked weekly), goat milk and cheese, eggs and produce from the farm (all, when available), and a few dinners and breakfasts each week, we would look for 3 to 5 hours of work each day, 5-6 days a week.

We need help caring for dairy goats, horses and sometimes chickens and pigs.

We have four dogs - they are friendly and good ranch dogs. Unfortunately, we can not host guests with dog/s.

No drugs. Smoking is ok, outside only. Light drinking is ok.

We enjoy our privacy, and will respect yours. We will not enter your quarters without your permission, and ask the same about entering our home. But, we also enjoyed sharing dinners, and fun times together, so several times a week invite guests in for dinner, breakfast, movies, etc. We have enjoyed this arrangement, and know how to adapt to the individual needs of each helper.

NOTE: We live in the country/rural area. There are critters - and, not just fuzzy, cuddly kinds. We have snakes, including rattlesnakes, mice, spiders, and other creepy crawlies. We DO get mice inside our house, in the RV, in the shed, in the aquaponics greenhouse, etc. We are VERY diligent about keeping vermin under control, for ours, our garden's and our animals' health. If you are one to freak out because of mice and country critters, maybe look elsewhere ;)

We've been hosting guests for over three years now, and it has been a truly amazing experience; meeting world travelers, who are interested in sustainability, and helping us make our dreams come true. We hope that we are helping them live their dreams, too. Occasionally, someone visits who is not a good fit - this is no one's fault, and we do our best to screen for this. We always wish them well on their travels, as that's the most important thing for us all, in life.

Thanks for looking. Wherever your travels may take you, we wish you all the best!
