We welcome all members of the World Wide Organization of Organic Farmers to stay at the Ranch facilities while in the area!
Minimum stay is 2 weeks; 4 hours of work is expected daily in exchange for food basics, bathing facilities and living accommodations. Primitive dry RV/Camper and tent sites are available. Excellent private wooded sites for camping are located throughout the property, some with lake views. Bring your own camping equipment, including your own tent. WWOOF’ers are needed mainly between April and October.
We provide food basics and all the garden produce you can eat! WWOOF’ers are expected to prepare their own meals, clean their own dishes and do their own laundry. If you have a special diet — vegetarian, vegan, lactose intolerant, gluten-free, significant food allergies — let us know in advance, though this will mostly be each WWOOF’ers responsibility.
All WWOOFer’s are required to complete an application and liability form. Picture identification is required for all applicants. Any applicants with a physical disability must disclose this on their application form. Many of the tasks here are manual labor and require good health, physical strength, endurance, ability to lift up to 70 lbs, climbing up ladders, loading/unloading trucks/trailers, manual field work, bending, working in all types of weather, hiking, manual dexterity, mechanical aptitude and perseverance.
Our ranch is not only about gardening, but also about teaching: stone age life skills, food preservation techniques, wildcrafting, building, etc. Contact us in advance to find out what activities are planned during your time here!
Only self-motivated, happy learning, hard working, self-reliant people need apply!
