Last Minute Ranch

We are surrounded by forest and mountains and near many lakes. We have a variety of animals. We are accommodating to most diets and generous with food. We are casual, flexible but hard work gets done.

I have a severe sensitivity to chemical fragrances. I provide hair and body products for helpers if they do not bring unscented or true essential oil scented products. This is non-negotiable as my condition is severe.

This was a healing experience for me, in the physical sense because everything here is organic and chemical-free…from the food to the soaps and detergents and even the insect repellant Tamsen makes with essential oils. But it was healing as well in a spiritual/psychological sense, being nestled in endless forest just minutes away from gorgeous lakes and waterfalls, learning to milk goats and trim their hooves, building fence and snow roofs with trees that I cut down right here. I felt useful here. I felt appreciated. This was my first Worldpackers experience, and I loved it!

I advised Katori and sister Leah well in advance that they should postpone their visit until space was available. Katori had stated that she was having back pain and had already postponed the visit for a month later. I had a woman who needed emergency housing and had to let out the room to her in a February. Because of this I suggested that the two sisters wait until Sumner as I only had an off grid trailer available. Leah begged me to Allie them to come, they insisted they were ready to face the elements and prepared as they had their OWN bed in the car. I reluctantly agreed. Katori flew home 2 days later because of "continued back pain". Her sister Leah stayed and when the room opened up 3 days later, even though offered, she chose to stay in her own sleeping quarters in her car. Pretty unfair to suggest you may not have a place to sleep. They had complete information prior to coming.

The farm is quite big there is a lot of work to do, but Tamsen is quite understanding. Tamsen is a good host, her meals are very delicious! I'd come back.
