Farm to Family

I respect and welcome World Packers, and make every effort for you to have a comfortable stay here. There are accommodations for up to ten world packers. All accommodations have a/c and heat. Showers are hot. We are out in the country. If you have a car or other WP have a car there are many springs to visit and some nice kayaking on the Santa Fe River. We have a small pool to relax and cool off here on the farm. Freeze some popsicles and take a dip. Summer weeding shifts are 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening so there is plenty of free time.

If you play guitar I have a few here, also Ukulele, piano, and even a banjo. I play guitar and like to jam when ever anyone is into it. Neo, my grandson works with the WP often, and if you are a gamer, he will bring his gaming down to the farm kitchen. If you need WiFi for studies or work you can join the network while you are here. I just signed up with world packers but have been with Wwoof for a few years and gave some nice reviews. Folks like it here. My Wwoof link is https://wwoofusa.org/en/host/23859

The work expected to be done was very reasonable for the exchange of housing and (good quality) food . Host Don, was very welcoming and hand many interesting stories to share. The other volunteers were also great and we were able to go out into the near by town/springs in the afternoon, when the work was done. We worked 4hrs a day, 5days a week. Overall I had a really amazing experience and would really recommend to come and help Don out here.

Farm to Family truly exceeded all expectations I had for my first world packers experience. Although being the only girl volunteer for the first half of my trip, I immediately felt at home here thanks to the fun personalities of Don, Rainah, Brance, Neo and Atom :) a great place to be if you're looking for some peace and connection with nature. The freshwater springs nearby are beautiful and refreshing if you can find a way to get to them! Would love to travel here again if capable...watching the turmeric transform over my stay here was most fulfilling :) Thankful

My friend Anthony and I stayed at Don’s farm for a month, we had an absolutely great and we intend on returning in the future! The work is enjoyable and relaxing, we spent most of our time weeding, it felt good to know we were helping the tummies (Turmeric) thrive. Don is the best host you could ask for, very kind and down to earth guy. I would highly recommend Farm To Family to anyone and can’t wait to go back! :)

Dons farm will make you feel at home the moment you arrive. Everyone at the farm is always considerate of your needs. The work is not hard and enjoyable. There are plenty of springs near by that are beautiful and refreshing. It’s also a great place to go if you enjoy making music. Visiting Dons turmeric farm is a must if you are thinking about it.
