Default getting free farm labor

The bullock brothers farm has folks paying to work on their farm. And folks are lining up. And I've met these folks: hard workers that love the experience at the farm. Usually they have saved up for the first summer, and sometimes they get other jobs to continue living/working there.

I just now pushed this 30 second video up to youtube showing the outdoor classroom at the bullock brothers farm. Simple, quick, attractive and enough space for about a hundred students.

Mighty smart I think ...

Of course, there is a lot of reasons why folks would pay to work there, but I think the beauty of the place is good place to start.

Oh my gawd. Bless the Bullock brothers. LOL! They've read "Tom Sawyer"! It's the paint the fence story all over again!

Such a gullible breed, these city liberals. Call it "Permaculture" instead of manure shoving and they do it with gusto.

I think there is a whooooooole lot more to it than that.

It's a beautiful place, overall. And it is just plain fun to be there. And the other folks that are there are first rate. And they have lots and lots of really interesting stuff they are doing there.

this can be two edged. I have a friend who has wwoofers working on his truck farm, four or five at a time, same ones coming again and again. Another one has had bad experience, get ready for them and they do not show up. Okay, if I was clueless and wanted to learn, I would appreciate hands on experience in addition to classroom time and work for room and board.
