Willing to work and live together


We've worked on boxwood/christmas tree farm, a couple of organic veggie farms, we also got to have some experience with a couple of herbal medicine people, learned to dry , press,color, and arrange flowers for example to use in jewelry or window pictures (pressed flower art between glass) stayed and worked for the twelve tribes, too.

Main skills - growing veggies a taking care of animals, baking bread making cheese ,kumbucha,soaps sorta perfumes, tincturs, milking cows and goat's, mead brewing. Besides this we or more Carnell has skills in construction remodeling and repair, tree and landscaping. Most our farm life is minimal impact practice... With intensive seed germination in the thousands  (this can be fun, dropping a certain number of seeds, over and over!) We are in tune and on time with morning harvesting and washing. We're very much active with livestock ... Our goal is to one day be able to run our own farm or homestead type operation, incorporated with bio dynamic agriculture and animal husbandry...

Right now we even harvest our own sap lol. Unfortunately, we were often too early or to late to work a whole season, know we try again because our main goal is to find the right place and people to stay long-term and have the opportunity to grow our own thing's.
So, long story short we would like to do the wwoofing type and get the chance to get our skills some upgraded.
And, yes, we could talk on the phone to answers some more questions on both sides, our phone signal is not that great at the moment but we hope that will change very soon.
Maybe you can let us know when it will be best for you.

We're very interested in having a working environment for the whole season!

We think it would be good to iron out details of labour exchange and possibly a stipend option. Most seem to have a 5 hour day, but honestly, we tend to rise with the sun and go till dusk!

Thanks for your time
-Beatrice and Carnell

Three questions:
Are you vegetarian or carnivore?
Do you smoke?
Are you looking for employment or a live-and-share opportunity?

By no means is this broadcast limited to geographic area. Our initial plan was the Pacific Northwest. The Ozarks are what we (now) see presently at rising spring.
