WORLD WIDE ORGANIZAITON OF ORGANIC FARMERS
As a host farm we have had the opportunity to meet some very special people,
we have been able to share our home and knowlege of farming, and life in the country.
While our farm is not true certified organic, we do strive to be organic, and naturally grown.
Our volunteers participate in the greenhouse, gardens, farm markets and auctions.
The sometimes have long days and physical labor performing tasks such as harvesting,
selling, fencing, building or feeding animals.
However, some farms also welcome WWOOFers who prefer doing non-farming tasks such as office work,
baking, canning sewing helping out at the house with cleaning.
We are very adaptable and welcome the help where ever they choose to be.
Most importantly, wwoofers should be comfortable adapting to new situations and environments.
They should have experience with hard physical labor and travelling within the country.
Wwoofers under the age of 18 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We accept small families and some pets.
Being a Wwoofer means contributing to farm labor and experiencing a cultural exchange with the
local community and surrounding areas. There is a growing Amish community here
and they have a wonderful farm produce auction, where we purchase some of the
products for the farm markets.
We like to treat our volunteers to some of the
local attractions that we sometimes take for granted.
The volunteer's daily program depends on the needs of the host farm,
as well as the volunteers personal interests and skills. In general, the volunteers will have 6-8 hours of activity,
at least 5 days a week, depending on the needs of the farm.
The volunteer are treated as a guest by us and our farm, they have a place to sleep
(we offer our camper in the summer and the house in the winter), and food to eat.
Our meals are down home country cooking, that can be made adaptable to anyone.
Volunteers are not expected to pay for food or accomodation,
