Down on the farm

My sister just spent two weeks working on Figment Farm, a small family operated farm located 40 miles southwest of Portland, Oregon. The farm grows organic fruits and vegetables for a CSA, and it also has chickens and sheep. She found the opportunity through WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Famrs), a worldwide network of organic farms that offer food and accommodation in exchange for volunteer help. She took such beautiful photos that I just had to share a few! Doesn't it make you want to throw on some overalls and a straw hat and get your hands dirty?


Aren't they purty? I'm now perusing WWOOF's website and drooling over all the amazing opportunities. (A coffee and macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, anyone?)

Have any of you done this sort of thing (either through WWOOF or otherwise)? I would love to hear about it!
