Explain the room and board arrangements or describe options in your area

The farm provides a variety of living options -- a workplace trailer, a 5th wheel camper, a room in a tiny house, or space to set up tipis or wall-tents. We just want everyone to feel like they have a comfortable, equitable space to retire to at the end of the day.

Please share three things you think people should know about living with you.

We are a worker cooperative, sharing in the benefits and challenges of small-scale market farming. In a nutshell, we work like dogs and eat like kings. There's glamour in our market stands and CSA shares. But there's hard work and rural living that leads up to those moments of sheer bliss.

Do you have a website, social media account, or job posting anywhere else?

Yes
