We are reaching out to you! 
Are you interested in opening your house to some work and travel students? At Bartlett's Farm we have never hired students from abroad unless we have adequate housing arranged before they arrive.  
The good news is we've identified a number of bright, young qualified students we'd like to hire.
 The bad news is we don't have enough of our own housing for
all of them.
If you would be interested in opening your house
or renting out a room to a student or two participating in the J1 cultural exchange program here at the farm,
please email Laura or you can get more information from
Whitney at the registers.
