Were looking for a live on site farm hand or hands in Kettle Falls WA. Need someone to feed and water small livestock daily, water the garden, and help out with some of the many projects around the farm. On average you will put in about 10 to 15 hours of work per week in exchange for that work we will let you stay in a furnished geo dome on our farm for free. There are also additional labor trades that can be worked out for food raised here on the farm. Text for more details or check out our FB page @beaverfallsfarm to get a closer look at the farm and animals.

We have 40 wooded acers in ne WA. state (kettle falls) were turning into a permaculture homestead. We're installing terraces, swells, hoogel beds, ponds, rotationall grazing paddocks, market gardens, and a barn over the next year.
We already have several livestock animals on the property and plan to begin breading this year as well.
This is going to be alot of work! And we need help. So we're offering a work trade deal, where you can trade a couple hours of work per day in exchange for RV space. If you live localy and just want to learn while working we can trade labor for food raised here on the property (We also have a small RV here you can ues, and small buildings like yurts or geodesic domes can also be set up) We need help and will take a straight labor trade deal, but this also an awesome free learning opportunity for anyone interested in permaculture, homesteading, offgrid power systems, or animal husbandry. So people with intrest in learning these kinds of things will be given priority.
There's way to many tasks that need doing to list here but here are some examples of the work we need done. Surveying, running fence, planting, tree grafting, animal care, building, canning, slaughtering, butchering, cooking, shopping, research, marketing, and many many more. As you can see there's a wide variety of work that could be done. We're not expecting anyone to do all of that, you can pick and choose what you want to do. There's something for everyone from labor intensive to computer work.
About the property, we're very secluded and off grid, we have power and water systems on site and you can choose to be close to main house and tie into those systems or be farther out on the property and set up your own infrastructure. The property is bordered on 2 sides by national forest and offers great hunting and awesome views of the Columbia River. We're at 2300 ft of elevation and we get all 4 seasons including 2ft of snow in the winter. There is 6 mi of dirt roads to get to the property and a 4wd vehicle is highly recommended. Please text for more information 50nine67five7281, messager, and posting here work as well.
Thanks for reading and happy homesteading

Hi Deb,
Ok I'll try to answer your questions in the order you asked them.
There's a lot more info at this link including pics. https://spokane.craigslist.org/prk/6243576375.html
We were planing to offer just the space for the urt, or RV, for someone to bring in there own, however there is an RV here on the property we could let someone ues.
  We are off grid but that only means we make our own power, we have all the modern conveniences, including flush toilets, jacuzzi tub, laundry room, full kitchen, even a 50 in tv. All of these thing would be available for someone here on the property to ues free of charge.
 We currently have 5 goats, (nubian and fainting) 3 IPP pigs, 7 dogs, 4 cats, and over 100 birds, chickens and ducks both layers and meat birds.
We're open to any length of stay, but we're really looking for people that wish to stay 6 months or more. And we're open to long term stays, anyone that works is welcome to stay as long as they like.
   I'm not sure what you mean by " ties" but anyone here and working gets feed everyday and can put a portion of every harvest into their own frezers or jars. Our long term hope is that people will start here on our land and ues that time to save some money and learn enogh homesteading skills to go out a buy thier own near bye piece of land to homestead. This will allow us to start a share network for the big tools like tractors, heavy equipment, and harvesting implements. We could also provide plant starts and baby livestock along with any other help we can to get your own local homestead up and running.
No you wont find any stupid rules here like no drinking or smoking. Your welcome to do whatever you want here as long as you put a little work in each day.
 The land is forested mountains except the areas we have cleared for development. We're bordered by the colville national forest.
We have 13000 gallons of drinking water storage and more water storage for animals and irrigation. And yes there's at least 3 backup plans for everything here including water.
   We are secluded with 4 mi of county maintained dirt roads and 2 mi of our private dirt roads between us and the nearest blacktop road. The nearest store is 15 mi from the property and that is a gas, liquor, and pot shop. Wal mart, north 40, sears Safeway, and 3 hardware stores are in colville about 25 mi from here. Town is about half an hour travel from here. And even in winter town is accessible after we plow our 2 mi road.
Hope this was helpful and feel free to text or email any more questions. My name is Ryan pH 850-573-8988 email rollingwithr@yahoo.com

We own a 40 acer homestead surrounded by national forest north of Kettle falls. Our property has some awesome views of the Colombia river valley. We're offering free RV, tiny home, urt, space in exchange for help with the day to day work around the homestead. Things like feeding moving livestock, building, canning, harvesting, planting, planning installing alternative power systems, running new fence lines. The entire property is off grid, this doesn't mean we don't have power and water it just means we have those things in limited supply since we have to create them ourselfs. Your welcome to tie into our systems near the main house or we can lend you a generator and you can chose any space on the property you like. Your welcome to bring your own livestock and pets if you like. This could be a great opportunity for anyone thinking of trying their own homestead, it offers you a chance to try out the lifestyle for free without having to invest a ton of money into your own property and you'll get some practical experience. We have pigs goats ducks chickens dogs cats. We're putting in swells and planting tons of fruits berries and vegetables this year. We also plan to share any harvests we take in while your here with you. Please text with any questions thanks
