* March 31, 2020 UPDATE *

We are currently not accepting helpers as we are abiding by the shelter in place protocols for the Covid outbreak.

Hope this all settles soon,

Stay safe & be well!


We are a small organic family run farm in Aptos, California since 1978. We are only a couple miles from the coast, located between San Francisco and Monterey. We grow organic kiwi fruit, have a small herd of dairy goats, bees for pollination, as well as other farm animals and livestock.
We need help with general farming and maintenance, caring for livestock, pruning our vineyard in January/February, thinning in July, and harvest in late November. Helpers can stay in our remodeled barn. Non-Smokers only. No pets. Depending on time of year, helpers can work from 10-20 hours weekly. Helping less than 2 hours daily, we provide housing only. Helpers are expected to be tidy and respectful. We have very limited internet.
Helpers welcome from 1 to 2 weeks. We are 2 miles from the nearest bus stop. Having a car is a plus. Feel free to contact us if you are in the area.

We look forward to hearing from YOU! Photos of you doing what you love to do are a plus.

** As of Jan. 2020 **

Baby goats, milking and cheese making will not begin until March/April 2020. Bees are in winter mode until spring 2020. We got a head start on pruning and should be done soon.

We have limited openings until kidding/milking season begins.
