Farm Description:On our farm, we grow diverse vegetable crops for our CSA program (60 members) and farmer's markets. We also have a flock of laying hens, and a herd of dairy goats.
We suggest wwoofers start with a 2-3 week stay, and if everybody is happy after that period we can extend it longer. We encourage wwoofers to think about a longer stay if they are having a good experience and the space is available. Feel free to inquire about a longer stay from the start. Email is preferred contact method.
March-November is busy season on the farm. We are especially looking for wwoofers for July and August this year. (For 2012: we are currently looking for wwoofers who are interested in starting around July 15th and staying for a month or longer. Please let us know if you are interested.) Accommodation is in a separate cozy room with loft; and a shared bathroom in our house. 1-2 wwoofers at a time. Sorry, no children, no pets, absolutely no smoking. We don't eat much meat; vegetarians/vegans welcome. Meals will generally be "Do-it-yourself": we'll provide ingredients and cooking facilities.
We ask 4-5 hours of work per day. Depending on the time of year and length of your stay, you can expect to help with planting, weeding, harvesting, tending to the chickens and goats. You'll have opportunities to learn about CSA management and livestock husbandry.
Farming experience is appreciated but not required--just a positive attitude, good sense of humor, and willingness to learn and try new things. This is a cultural and educational exchange and we hope you will leave the farm with an improved understanding for farm life and farming practices.
We've wwoofed in Spain and New Zealand, so we know what it's like! Our property has 200 acres to explore in your free time. We're near a redwood grove, the Russian River and a pond for swimming and fishing. You're welcome to borrow bikes. We're a short drive from town for shops, library, etc. We can sometimes provide transportation from Santa Rosa.
