Greetings from our Organic farming community, located just 40 minutes south of Boston in a town called Raynham. Our family warmly invites you to experience our unique life of friends and togetherness. All together we farm about 80 acres on a few different plots of land. We grow organic vegetables for our own community use and also 4 farmers markets, and we operate a small raw dairy business of cow and goat products, certified by the state of Massachusetts. Growing a wide assortment of vegetables for a farm stand and our own community use, raising chickens for eggs and meat, and milking a sizable herd of dairy goats and several cows, keep us busy and open for new friends year round. In addition to the normal farm crew and volunteers, we also have a great time doing the "community night" in the field, with everyone coming out for one evening a week to join in the work and reward of getting our hands in the soil.
Guests are frequent all year round and we would love to have you join us. Whether you come for a day or come to stay, our hearts and our farm will always have room for more.
Update: June 2016
summer is at our door and we are going strong in the field work. Many young animals in the barn! Look forward to hosting you!

We have the following activities going on: Greenhouse work, Gardening, cheese-making, haying, making grain Animal chores, cleaning.

We love to teach and pass on what we have learned and what we are learning! Come learn together with us!

Volunteer work is based on areas of interest, abilities, our needs and availability.

We always have lots going on, so you will never be bored!
Activities may vary depending on the time of year.

Please note: Every one of us, whether guests or residents, are volunteers. There is no financial compensation offered for any work done. We agree to provide you with three meals a day and housing, in exchange for your volunteer work.

Living arrangements will be according to space and needs. Diets w/special needs can be accommodated within reason.
What else ...

By saying we are a "community", we do not mean a loose association of individuals in a common geographical location, but rather a large extended family of married couples, single people, and children sharing a common social, spiritual, and economical goal. That goal is to create a life of care and growth for the common good. We live a life dedicated to sustainable practices, primarily of our relationships with one another. To make this a daily reality, we eat all our meals together, gather morning and evening, with weekend celebrations, sing, dance, and offer a community prayer to the One who makes this life possible. We also teach about our spiritual way of life based on the original teachings of Yahshua the Messiah. We ask that volunteers would attend all gatherings and meals, with a desire to respect and learn from our way of life together.
