La Madera Farms

30 acres of irrigable land bordered by a river & beautiful NM mtns, we are a small family run farm and need help with tractor work, weeding, spraying, beekeeping, irrigating, harvesting and planting garlic, wheat, rye, vetch, asparagus, herbs, chickens & guineas. There is a little adobe by the river for a Wwoofer that could be available. It's a remote setting but there are many skills to learn here and opportunities with a local native potter. Own car an advantage. Honest worker a must. Stipend possible depending on experience & work habits.

The learning you can do here is hands on, usually working alone, after one demonstration or explanation. We, too, learn from our mistakes. We really appreciate some experience and a mindset that works for everyone: enjoy the food you grow, get up early when it's cool, bring the tools back, multitask, observe what's going on, ask questions rather than being sure you have a better way, aesthetics matter, your mom doesn't work here, respect others privacy, etc.

Row Crops, Market Gardens, Long-term Internships, Orchards, Poultry, Green Building, Green Energy. In this, the 2012 season, I am working on a possible transition to selling more and more of my garlic for seed. Price is better and it may be a little less work. I have found that getting help at a price I can afford is the single most difficult job of all. Please take the 2nd paragraph to heart and see what really works for you.
