Enjoy nature and fresh air at our farm. Interns get to work in our hoop-houses (4 of them), harvest produce, repair and install drip irrigation, transplant plants, make soil blocks, move chickens, build fences, go to farmers markets and more. They can explore 3 miles of wooded trails, experiment with new foods or chill out on the internet. They can meet other farmers that belong to our group of growers and learn more about what it takes to be certified organic. Interns can stay in travel trailers or they can camp on the farm. Food is provided and some evening meals are eaten together. Interns without transportation can be picked up at the airport, train or bus station, bikes are available so they can travel to nearby towns. There are small town events and activities which occur throughout the whole summer and we are close to Lake Huron.

Our farm is located in the heart of the Ozarks. We have 320 acres of beautiful rolling pastures and woods. We are truly grass farmers, as we are always working on improving our pasture management techniques to keep all of our livestock well fed on our pastures!

We raise beef cattle, sheep, and hogs for meat that we market through our CSA. Our beef and lamb are 100% grassfed, and we are looking into becoming certified Organic for our grassfed beef, lamb and pastured pork. We have laying hens, two llamas, and many dogs and cats. We also board retired horses for folks from across the country. Daily chores include feeding and watering all of the animals, checking on livestock in the pastures and moving them to a new field if needed, cleaning horse stalls, collecting eggs, and gardening. In addition to the chores, we always have a project or two going on. It can range from fencing, to performing maintenance on farm equipment, to putting up hay. We put up all of our own hay, both ... more inside

Jeff and Nancy have been living in this house since 1996 and have been trying to fix it up and finish it ever since. Beginning as a small log cabin, it now consists of 2700 sf, much is finished, but much still needs to be completed.

We have 8 raised beds outside where we are experimenting with Organic square-foot gardening, learning as we go. We appreciate any help with them from others who know more than we do.

We are practicing Seventh-day Adventist Christians, with a love for the Lord and serve Him in all that we do and how we relate to others. We keep the seventh day as the Bible Sabbath from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday and do not work during those hours. We welcome people of all faiths into our home and do not expect anyone to believe as we do, but are more than willing to share information, as we love to learn of other peoples' faiths.

We are certified Raw/Vegan Chefs, in health ministry reaching out to others through teaching a raw/vegan lifestyle and natu... more inside

ARE YOU IN ALIGNMENT?: Who understands permaculture, gardening, loves working with their hands and heart, and has a mindful spiritual practice that honors nature, animals and people? This is smoking, drinking, drugging free zone. Not that they are free, we just don't use them. Highly spiritual space and honoring all paths that have expanded in a Universal oneness. Yet we also do target practice with guns, so must be okay with a little noise once in a while.

THE CREATION: My mission is to create a small community and spiritual retreat for education and for people to connect with nature and heal. We will eventually have organic gardens, fruit trees (if I only knew were to plant them), grapes, a meditation temple, alternative buildings like cob, a community kitchen, music and art spaces to create. The goal is to provide educational seminars on homesteading and healing. Do you have a skill to share and teach that can bring in funding? We have events and gatherings like tree climbs,... more inside

Our farm is run by Cate, Tyler and James. We're in our mid-twenties and we have been farming each for 3-5+ years and taken part in various internships, WWOOFing, MOFGA, and full-time and part-time farming situations. We also have a two-year-old on board. This is our second year for the three of us together, after previously starting Big Muddy urban Farm in Omaha. Here in western Iowa we are doing organic vegetables and berries, wildcrafting, and value-added food products and soap on our small 10 acre farmstead 45 minutes East of Omaha. This year we are a part of a collaboratively run, with another farm, 50 member CSA. We sell to restaurants and will be doing occasional farmer's markets as well. We're expanding fast and would like to add bees and livestock to our line-up this year.

This spring we will have 1 acre in production and two acres freshly plowed and under cover crop. We have two barns, a wood shop, several sheds and a tractor. Projects this year are to build a cold stora... more inside
