Wwoofers

Welcome WWOOFers!

I get pretty excited when spring rolls around because there are so many new things unfolding.  This is the time of year when our whole cast and crew begin taking shape and YOU play an important part in our season.  WWOOFers add a fun dynamic to our farm and we enjoy hearing about all the journeys you've been on as well as the ones you plan to undertake.  We are open to shorter stays of a month, the full season, or anything in between.

A clear understanding of what you're getting into and a set of expectations are the best ways to make sure you'll have a good experience.

Surrounding area: We live in the small, rural town of Acme, WA which has one foot in the logging industry and the other in agriculture.  We're quaint: the downtown area consists of the Post Office, General Store, Cafe, and Fire Station.   We're about 20 miles East of Bellingham and 85 miles North of Seattle and there's a bus line and commuter train that can connect to larger metropolitan areas but, because we're so far removed, you'll be most happy if you have a car to get around and enjoy the endless opportunities for outdoor fun including hiking, kayaking, climbing, biking, and swimming.  

Housing & Accommodations: Our WWOOFer housing is just a few miles away from the farm in downtown Acme.   WWOOFers can expect a room with bed in a fully furnished house with full utilities.  House includes shared kitchen, bathroom, and laundry facility.  Free Wifi is available at the nearby Cafe.   Our library system is phenomenal and should meet all your reading, movie viewing, music listening, & web surfing needs.   Staple groceries are supplied along with produce and protein from the farm.  We potluck from time to time but meals are usually independent. 

Farm Exchange:  24 hours/week on the farm in exchange for food and housing.  Scheduling is flexible ie 6 hrs x 4 days or 8 hours x 3 days.  It's easiest to work this out on an individual basis.  Tasks could include seed starting, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, animal care, building projects, and more. 

Good Fit:  Our baseline assumption is that you have an interest in farming and you enjoy being outside.   Take into account that we're rural.  Sometimes the power goes out.  Life goes on.  Also, you should be comfortable with the idea of raising livestock, butchering, and eating meat since it's a large part of our operation.  We enjoy quality ingredients cooked from scratch and that's about the extent of our dietary scripture.  Good candidates share the same ideas.  We're a commercial farm which means we work hard and WE LOVE IT!  You should like to work hard too during the times you're scheduled on the farm.  Sound good?  Great!  Can't wait to meet you.  Contact us to get the ball rolling.
