We are a 3 year old certified organic beef, pork and poultry farm that also does small scale organic veggies, herbs and plants to sell in the spring. There are many things you can learn while here, including how to raise animals organically, how to plant permaculture gardens, how to care for soil and increase biodiversity, and how to cook nutritious meals. We have been hosting on WWOOF, but wanted to expand our reach as we recently heard about helpx from one of our wwoofers.

While here you can help with fencing, animal care, gardening, cooking, cleaning, computer work, markets, moving cattle and pigs, caring for baby animals, organizing our freezer inventory, walking our 5 dogs, and much more. You will gain valuable experience that can be used on a resume, and help you in your future work. We love to teach and encourage you to ask questions, problem solve, and share ideas and knowledge you have from other hosts. We welcome suggestions. We will not make you do anything you're not comfortable with, and some of our helpers have chosen to work mostly outside only, or inside only. It's up to you!

We provide lots of good food including our own grassfed beef and Pastured pork/poultry and eggs, and organic veggies grown here depending on the season. We let you help shop so you get the food you want so you are healthy while you are here. We do not force people to change their diets. We accept vegetarians but cannot host vegans at this time.

We try to make it fun and like to joke around and laugh. We have been told that we make it feel like a family, and we can honestly say we have come to love and care for all of our helpers. They feel like friends after they leave and we keep in touch. Your help means the world the us, and we will accept any amount you provide.

In exchange we offer 2 small bedrooms in the house, and a 3rd person can sleep in the office if needed in the winter. plus a tent trailer in the summer for 1, and a large very nice fifth wheel trailer with lots of room for you and your bags in the spring summer and fall!

We have high speed unlimited internet, tv, a computer you can use, lots of blankets pillows and extra clothes you can borrow, books, games and old 90's vhs movies ;)

You are free to use our farm truck to go to town for shopping or just to get out of the house, it cant be all work!

We hope you will give us a chance. Head over to our facebook page link above to see what we have been up to!

We hope to hear from you soon!
