My wife and I currently live near Monterey, CA, and are coming to the end of our time here. We're looking for someone with land with space for us to put down our 16ft yurt (belle tent) in exchange for our assistance planning, executing, and maintaining your vision.
We are experienced with and passionate about: permaculture/food forests/organic & sustainable farming; gourmet and medicinalmushroom cultivation; efficient & ethical chicken husbandry; sourdough bread & pizza; value-added products (jam/preserves, hot sauce, beer/wine/cider, pickles & other ferments); compost production (including vermicompost); and solar power. We are also very learned and enthusiastic about: alternative building methods (cob, straw bale, earthbag, rammed earth) & styles (tiny houses, yurts, converted vehicles); rocket stoves & mass heaters; charcoal/biochar production; and much more!
We have two cats and a mid-sized, well-behaved dog, and they are used to, and very happy with, living in and around the yurt. We also have two cars (a sedan & a 4x4 SUV), so we can provide our own transportation as well as help with errands if desired. In terms of location, we'd love if you're nearby (central coast CA), but we're willing to relocate for the right opportunity, and are generally interested in the west coast US.
We are versatile, fast learners, and hard workers, and we want to work with you on realizing your goals. Let us help you maintain your property, design your ideal garden, and bring out the full potential of your space.
My wife and I are establishing our farm on 50 acres in NW Montana, and seeking help this season (now - when it gets cold again). We're primarily raising sheep and pigs, and are planning a mellow summer with little marketing/production while tackling our first projects as budget allows. Sectioning pastures, developing springs, walipini construction, cheesemaking R+D, tree planting, natural gardening, and having a good time on the river. We would love hands on some of the more challenging projects, but ultimately would like to have another trustworthy set of eyes to watch the place when we are away from the farm (travel, hit a show, get lost in the woods, etc.). It's quiet here, lots of water, lots of mountains, right on Flathead Lake.
Hi there! I have 80 beautiful acres of wooded hills and workable fields in Yuba County. There’s well water, power, and a year-round, spring-fed creek. It’s historically a productive agricultural property with fruit orchards, and I would love to find the right people to head up a permi-rejuvenation. Please let me know if you’re still looking. Thanks!
