• Reevis Mountain School welcomes a special few people to come work on the farm in exchange for room and board, for whatever period of time is enriching for both you and Reevis. Interns don't gain money here, but they gain a lot of knowledge, health and experience. Plan on staying at least two months or longer.

  • What we provide you - besides just time being here - is lodging in a yurpee (combination of yurt and teepee, which will have a bed for your sleeping bag, wood stove, and space for your personal things, but no electricity or interior water), nutritious omnitarian organic meals, hot showers, and on-the-job training related to whatever work is going on while you are here.

  • We have gardening work year round, construction projects underway (stone masonry and conventional wood-frame building), and all sorts of projects and tasks that come up on a working homestead. This is a wonderful place to learn new skills.

  • The work exchange involves working every day (the garden and the chickens don't take days off, so neither do we), participating in community breakfast and supper, and helping in whatever tasks are needed. (Please read our application for more details about the work.) Days off can be arranged, but in general interns need to be focused on the homestead activites. Please note that we cannot accommodate pets (no exceptions).  

  • Communication: There is no landline or cell service to this remote homestead. We do have satellite based internet service which is primarily for official use by Reevis office staff.  Interns are able to share our internet service on a limited basis, at appropriate times. Much personal correspondence is conducted via the United States Postal Service – someone does a mail run typically once or twice per week.

  • College students: Some students have been able to receive experiential learning credit for their time here. Bigfoot is established as a mentor with Prescott College, and we are happy to sign off on paperwork etc. to help you receive credit at your school.

  • We often have spots open for new internships. We require a $50 deposit from accepted applicants to hold a spot. Our rugged road requires 4WD.  We may be able to assist with local transportation from Phoenix or Globe.

  • We are often looking for a helper with office work such as answering emails, registering students for classes, and shipping orders.  We would ask for a longer stay, as quite a bit of training would be involved.

  • Please send an inquiry about availability, then send your application. The first few pages of the application are informational and will tell you a lot more about what it's like to live and work here.  We give applications careful consideration, discussion, and meditation to decide if we think it would be a mutually enjoyable and enriching experience. Please submit an application when you are committed to coming to Reevis.
