Farm Description:We are a couple living in a small house on 8 acres primarily occupied in running all aspects of a 5 acre certified organic chestnut orchard/ business. The farm is surrounded by forest and a scattering of rural homes.
Our orchard and business is well established with product sold locally to retail stores and by us at a farmer's market. Other than the orchard, farm activities include cultivating various fruit trees & berries, tending to a large flock of free range chickens, plus maintaining the family garden and surrounding native forestland. We are located 12 miles northwest of the Portland city center (a 20 minute drive), just beyond the urban growth boundary.
Accommodations are in a self-contained, recently refurbished 24 ft. travel trailer best suited to a single person or couple. Food is provided to suit, but for most meal preparation, you will be on your own. The arrangement allows for good privacy, should you desire. Amenities include Internet & DVD player, access to the family in ground swim pool, nearby public walking trails, and 2 bicycles for riding to the closest city bus stop (3.6 miles), on into the city, or for extended rides elsewhere. Sauvie Island and the Columbia River beaches are within easy reach.
Stays are for 2 weeks beginning April 15th, through the harvest/ market season ending in early November. Work duty hours and activities are safe, flexible and varied, with consideration of personal interest or the desire to learn - 15 to 20 hours per week. Feel free to inquire for further details. We speak only English, but have traveled extensively finding a way to get by with most language barriers.
