Meet Our Wwoof’ers

We ask for dedication, attention to detail, hard physical work and enthusiasm from our wwoof’ers …. a lot to ask from even the highest paid workers!  These remarkable and hardworking young women and men grace us with their presence, work, laughter and love in exchange for room, board and an opportunity to live on a farm…

They also learn how to work longer and harder than they ever have before;  to wonder at the marvel that the seeds they planted only weeks or months before become the food on their plates.  And for those interested in learning to cook, how to take those fruits, vegetables, eggs and herbs and turn them into delicious meals.

We are grateful for this wonderful farm life, and that it is time for us to teach the next generation the skills that the last generation taught us… Meet just a few of the many young people who have left their footprints on our farm and in our hearts.    Pat and Molly with the harvest.
