Work Stay

workstayThis completely unique experience is designed to help you reconnect with land and see how fresh food is produced. This program allows you to spend 20 hours working on the farm in exchange for a weeklong stay in one of our primitive cabins in the Agri-village at the Farm Retreat property. The bathhouse and parking is located 200-300ft away from the cabins. A central picnic shelter with charcoal grill and lighting provides a great spot to grill out on nice evenings while a small indoor kitchen allows meals to be prepared during rain or other inclement weather.

Spend time on the farm while you learn about sustainable farming practices. Depending on the time of year you could be doing anything from making plant cuttings, picking berries, transplanting, harvesting apples and asian pears, weeding plant beds and gardens, feeding chickens and trout, helping with minor construction projects, hauling recycling and trash, and pretty much anything else you can imagine that takes place on a working farm! During your stay you will have access to all of the Farm Retreat amenities. Central Wi-Fi access is provided if you need to stay connected to the real world. You will need to bring a cooler for your cold foods, toiletries, towels, sheets and bedding (Queen sized bed), pillows, and any other personal items you would normally want. Breakfast can be added to your stay for only $15/person/day. Unfortunately, we do not prepare Vegan meals. If you are Vegan you will need to plan to prepare all of your own meals.

Our Farm stay cabins can be booked from April-October for one week or up to six months. For stays longer than one week there will be a short phone interview after you make your reservation. When booking a Farm Stay Cabin, the reservation system requires an amount to be placed on the stay, so a fee of $1/night is built in even though no fee will be charged. We do require all of your information as if booking a normal stay, and also require a Credit Card to be on file in the case of abuse or malice towards our property.

We look forward to meeting you and hope that we can show you why we feel Plumtree is so special! Cheers!
