Volunteer work days In 2017, we can host folks who would like to volunteer to help on whatever project we happen to have going on. It is a great way to donate your time to have a free experience on the farm, have more time to get questions answered, see if you like the feel of homestead life, and get some exercise to boot! In order to participate in a volunteer day, you must email or call us and for the date you would like to come out.
“To my dear friends at Eight Owls–THANK YOU ALL for the absolutely life changing experience.....Showing me that it is possible to change our lifestyle to one that works more harmoniously with nature. I will never be able to repay you for all the knowledge I acquired during my stay, so it is pertinent that you know how much I appreciated it all.” –Brock R, 2014 volunteer
“Rain and Mika are a couple of badasses. Actually, they are a badass couple. My two weeks on Eight Owls Farm was just what I needed, a primitive getaway to get back in touch with nature. Both are passionate about their new way of life, and dedicated to sharing it with whoever seriously wants to give it a try and learn from their mistakes. They are proactive in making sure your needs are met–as long as you really want to learn. And learn you will. After two weeks on Eight Owls, I am a hundred times closer to being able to start my own homestead from scratch than ever before. Best of all, they've instilled the conviction that it is possible for anyone, even if you have nothing to start with. I feel like I've made lifelong friends in Rain and Mika and Eight Owls Farm.” –Greg P, 2014 volunteer
