We are a family run, Permaculture homestead in the making. Meaning, we are working toward our goal, which is total sustainability. We are based in Mariposa, California area, about 60 minutes from Yosemite National Park. Our goals are to grow our own food, and bring life back to the soil. Generally, we would like to leave the land better than when we got it.

Helpers would be able to choose from working on the job with our herd of 280+ grazing goats, helping to reshape the land and revive the soil, or planting and harvesting various crops/fruits/veggies.

We also have pot-bellied pigs, chickens, ducks, and of course, cats and dogs. We have good Wifi and laundry facilities available, both indoor and outdoor bathrooms and showers on our 80 acres. We have been working hard on swales. Ultimately we would like to have an independent food forest. Looking for people who are inspired, motivated, and awesome.

No drugs. Social drinking only please. Smoking OK.

Ability to work 3-5 hours a day within reasonable conditions, 5 days a week with flexible time off for multi-day Yosemite trips. No prior experience necessary but we welcome those with cool and helpful skillsets.

Option to cook and use of kitchen available; home-cooked meals (3 a day) will be mostly omnivorous since we eat a wide variety of dishes (both Eastern and Western) and have no dietary restrictions.

Transportation to and from Mariposa town (which has bus stations, grocery stores, restaurants, hardware stores, pharmacies, etc.) is about 12-15 minutes by car. Would be able to pick you up from the bus station in Mariposa, train station in Merced/Fresno, or airport in Fresno. Transportation to and from town can be made available when possible.

For those with allergens, please be aware. We do have bees, cats, dogs, pigs, chickens, ducks, pollen, goats, etc.
