Additionally, there are a few regulars who do not live at the farm, but who come often to help when help is needed, to aid in the delivery process, to bring us goodies for our 10 o’clock coffee time, and who are most certainly part of the farm-ily…

Monica, who has done everything from weeding to haying, but also provides diversion to us in the form of waterskiing, ice cream runs, swims & hikes…

 
 
 

Then there are a host of volunteers that pass through each year with an international program called WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms). Jacob was a toe-shoe wearing, philosophy-loving, tattooed writer from Texas. Mattia and Giovanni were eighteen and nineteen year old Italians with no farming experience, very little English, a great senses of humor. Laura from Alaska seeded the farm’s flower garden. Kees’s only criteria for accepting WWOOFers is that they are ready to learn, grow, and contribute (and don’t be late to the lunch table!). The farm family is tight-knit, and every WWOOFer brings a new flavor to the farm.
