We are happy to accommodate summer travellers that are independent and capable self-starters who know how to garden, landscape, build fences, use and maintain outdoor power equipment to tackle ongoing maintenance and small projects. Any and all help in exchange for accommodation is welcomed. Short stays or longer are both possible, as you have your own space with private bathroom and kitchen. We can be flexible with food and accommodation or accommodation only to offer a balance between the hours a week you would like to help and how much sightseeing you would like to do.

For those looking for a longer term situation, we raise sheep, but have plenty of land to share. There is enough room, good soil and plenty of sun and water to start a 2 acre farm market garden or horticultural nursery. There is even a space dedicated for an on farm shop from which to operate a small storefront or CSA program.

For the right person or people, there is room for your attractive and well built tiny house. There is a ton of cedar lumber on-site for someone with artistic carpentry talents to build creative fences and outbuildings. There is a large ornamental garden as well that is fully irrigated.

We are thinking about a succession plan, and who will be the next generation of career farmers who have the knowledge, skills and most important the passionate desire to come here and start up a sustainable farm model that will allow them to create a permanent home for themselves on this farm.
