There are many types of individuals that visit our farm. Typically they fall into one of the following categories:
Airbnb: Guests who have paid for accommodations at the farm.
Volunteers/Agrotourism – Guests who visit the Farm for a few hours to a full day. Volunteers bring their own food to the farm, and are provided the tools needed to complete their work, however, bringing your own tools is a plus. Volunteers take home finished products (such as fresh herbs, plants, seeds, etc.) and work a couple of hours.
Interns – Guests who live and work on the Farm for 2 to 14 days. Interns work 5-7 hours a day, and are provided accommodation and one daily meal (or monetary equivalent).
Apprentices – Committed forest farmers who live nearby and are interested in learning how to grow herbs and start their own farm. Apprentices visit the farm regularly for a minimum of one year and participate in a custom learning program.
