Hi there! If you want to experience many different things, this may be the place for you! I have a small organic farm with over 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers, as well as many other native plant species. I also have a Natural Foods Store and deli (We have lots of posts and photos on FB and IG). The store is located in a town in Iowa with a population of 10,000 in the winter and 100,000+ in the summer, because of all the seasonal residents and people who come to vacation at the lakes. The farm is located in a town in Minnesota, 33 miles from the store, with a population of about 40!

I would like to find 1-3 individuals, or a couple, who are willing and able to come here for an extended stay, if not the entire growing season, which is April Ė October. Shorter stays by additional people may be okay, but my main focus, and need, is to find people who will be here for most of this time frame, who can consistently and reliably help with growing things at ... more inside

We are currently considering potential prospective inquiries from June-September 2020.

Our place is set in a beautiful wooded valley in southern Indiana,surrounded by the Hoosier National forest; so our place is a magical place, with lots of trees, birds, wildlife and natural beauty. We cherish nature here and give gratitude every day to Mother Earth. It is remote and isolated, with the nearest neighbor about a mile away. The closest small town with a convenience/gas store is 7 miles. We will consider HelpXers only after extended conversation and full understanding of the isolated location of our property. No pets allowed.
To enter the property, a ford across a small stream, the Patoka River, must be crossed, or, if the water is up, a footbridge is available. It is extremely quiet, tranquil and peaceful here. We are located 48 miles west of Louisville, KY. Wi-Fi is available and the feed is via unlimited optic fiber.
We are a wife and husband who grow vegetables for perso... more inside

We are a couple in our 30s with two young sons and and a small hobby farm in north central Illinois. We have a small variety of animals including birds of all sizes, horses, camel, goats, donkey, dogs, cats. We do not make any profit from our farm or animals, so we both work full time away from our home.

Due to being gone so much, we are looking for help with all farm tasks in exchange for free room, wifi, food and laundry. Minimum stay 2 weeks. Can accommodate 2 persons; possibly more if willing to share a room.

Can provide hobby farm experience, education on animal care, horse back riding, camel trekking, raising poultry (peacocks), leather work. Helpers work alone and with us, and are also welcome to join our family on any trips or excursions while they are present.

Work is self-paced, helpers need to be able to work on simple tasks independently. Daily time commitment depends on how quickly you get things done and how much time you want to put into them. Tasks vary g... more inside

The mission of our farm is to teach people how to be healthy through good nutrition, exercise, relationships, and a healthy lifestyle. We also provide healthy food for our customers and show them how to prepare it. We have a large garden and small CSA, we make maple syrup, we grow corn, soybeans, wheat, spelt and hay and we raise chickens for eggs, and grass-fed beef. We have a sawmill and make our own lumber. We have lots of events including maple sugaring open house, mushroom hunts, and fall festivals. We do other special events including hayrides, retreats, and weddings. We have finished our cabin at the lake and it is open for visitors and events. We love to have volunteers and some resist leaving because of the atmosphere. Send us an email. Hope to hear from you.

We started our Vineyard back in 2004,it is located in a Beautiful,Quiet,Valley along the bluffs of the Mississippi River. We have five children that have now grown and moved out on there own. I just retired from a career of Process Instrument Work at the local power plant. I could use some help with the Vineyard and Gardens, but also enjoy fishing and boating on the river in the evenings and of course days off. We would be willing to supply your own bedroom,great meals and WiFi. We also have two Female Collies that love to get brushed and played with. The ideal person would have to be able to work on there own or in a small group, after some training of course to get you up to your comfort level, so as you basically understand what the goals might be for the time of year and tasks at hand, a five hour day,if the weather permits, is what we usually work . There might be a few longer days, but I`m sure that having time off to check out the area won`t be any problem. If you would car... more inside

Homestay in the Southern Indiana Forest

UPDATED AGAIN!!

A year ago I was trying to come to terms with a possible MS diagnosis and things were looking pretty bleak. The good news / bad news now is that they did not find MS. They did find severe arthritis, degenerative spinal disease, a few bulging disks and pinched nerves. And thatís just in my upper back!

I still have to take it easy, no heavy lifting and all that jazz but at least I have a plan for achieving wellness now. I donít have a lot of stamina and need to rest often. I have a long way to go but am more optimistic than I have been in years and that is a very good thing. I am working to return mindfulness, meditation and spirituality to my daily life, to re-energize my Reiki skills, to find my center again, work on eating better and gaining muscle strength and finally, to declutter the houseÖ. major emphasis on the decluttering.

Iím hoping to fill the calendar for the entire year so if you canít visit now, ... more inside

We are on a 65 acre farm in North Pope County, Illinois and are virtually surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. Having been on this farm for five years, we are still developing infrastructure and are continuing to plant in the orchard and various berries as well as establishing and expanding garden and crop areas.

We are a GMO, herbicide and pesticide free farm in all of our outdoor areas. As we are far away from "modern agricultural" property, we feel that we should have no problems with cross pollination of our crops with GMO's or damage/exposure from/to ag chemicals.

There are many projects currently in process or in the planning stages. This summer/fall we hope to get new water and electric lines ran to all the barns and the greenhouse as well as get a fiber studio framed in and get the finishing touches on the greenhouses.

Tasks on the farm are endless, so there are always things to do year round. Clearing brush, cutting wood, building fence, baling hay, sawin... more inside
