For 2017 we have two sessions available: Session 1, April 3 to May 29 and Session 2, July 3 to August 28.

All housing and food while at our farm is provided by us as well as transportation to and from the Fresno and Hanford Amtrak stations or to and from the Fresno Greyhound bus stations during your stay. Trips will cost extra but will be at cost. Transportation, park entry fees, food and lodging that will need to be reserved for the Grand Canyon Trip as well as the trip to LA will be extra and there will be opportunities to work extra hours to pay for the extra expenses on the Trip during the week on the farm.
