SOLSTICE FAMILY FARM
Educational Opportunities | There are ample opportunities to learn how to grow vegetables in our ancient peat soil and how to tend, prune, and cultivate a beautiful orchard. Our animals need a watchful eye, so one will learn how to spot a sick or injured animal and how to treat them accordingly. There are always a variety of projects that will require basic carpentry, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing skills. We can be of service and show you what we know in those departments.
Compensation | In exchange for 25-28 hours of farm labor per week, we provide a studio apartment with a kitchen and bathroom OR a nice spot of land to park your RV. We also provide many opportunities for hands-on farm education and a single 160' long row in the vegetable garden for you to grow your own veggies. And lastly, we like to share in the farms excesses, this often translates into extra apples, parsnips, garlic, squash, pumpkins, asparagus, etc. We believe the remainder of the week can be used to obtain part-time employment in our community and explore the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula. No dogs, cats or children please.
Skills Desired | Above all, a strong work ethic, ability to pace yourself with strenuous labor and a willingness to get your hands dirty will get you far on this farm. Those with an inquisitive nature, assertive personality, good observation skills and a desire to learn new skills will do well. A big interest in eating and cooking healthy, delicious food is a plus!
Meals | From time to time we all get together to share a meal or have tea time, especially after working together after a long day. All other meals you will be on your own.
