 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.

I'm getting my land cleared for free.  I found a man in the firewood business, and he clears the oak trees in exchange for getting to take the logs for firewood.  The only downside is that he does it in his free time.  I can't really hurry him since I don't get cash.  Another way to get free farm labor is to exchange pasture for work.  There are always people who need a place to put their cattle.  Instead of taking cash, you can have them do work for you.
