It was a very gratifying experience. The family is very loving and well organized. You receive much in exchange for what you give. The farm is very nice. They give you everything you need, you never go hungry or thirsty. During my stay I was able to live with the other volunteers in a healthy and fun way. You have the opportunity to travel during your stay, whether you do it on a trip organized by the hosts or with your companions. You have the opportunity to live more intensely your contact with nature and with God. It is definitely a great experience, I am very happy and grateful!

AWEEEEESOME!!! My stay there couldn't be better! every single person I met there made a difference in my life! If you are looking for a peaceful place, to learn about LIFE, don't think twice, this is the best place to go! The work is hard, but you get a 6-pack abs after some days :)
I stayed almost 2 months, and I realized some things:
Pruning is better than meditation, Spiders are super friendly (the chickens as well), California is hot (I mean HOT), U-haul= airbnb+uber-price, America is great, California is hot (I won't forget).
I am grateful for all the people that supported COWTIP!

SO MUCH LOVE for the blessed Jackson family that received me as one of the children, Barbie and all the COWTIPers. I've met wonderful places with them and lived in one too. If you want to improve yourself as a human while working with the nature, traveling, making friends and having a lot of fun this is the perfect place. I'm so grateful for having this oportunity. THANK YOU ALL!

My fisrt experience with the worldpackers couldn't be better! The Jacksons are a very special family, I learned a lot from them and feel blessed to be able to call them my American Family! Rob and Sarah are the most amazing hosts, and Barbie (BB) was like a mother to me, I love them all so much and already miss them a lot! They provided me with the most wonderful experiences: Grand Canyon, Yosemite Park, Kings Canyon, Santa Cruz Beach, San Francisco, it was even better than I imagined it would be. The work in the farm is hard, but this trip was one big adventure worth telling. Thank you Family
