There's some trim work for a small group of people to take care of at a ranch I frequent just outside of Socorro, New Mexico

The ranch belongs to an old dead captain named Kenny. I met him a few years back while flying at the Socorro Walmart and he's looked out for me ever since. His ranch is pretty self sufficient; used to be a WWOOF site..There are a few different dwellings to choose from, full RV hookups if need be, plenty of room on the property for whatever. It's right on the Rio Grande>> dope spot. All the bud you can smoke and good company.

It's all Darkstar and Acapulco thats been grown out there since the 90s. Solid genetic stock. Pretty good op all in all like I said I've worked for him a few times.
I'm not able to make it this year though and he asked me if I could send some feelers out.

If you're in the southwest, NM area, or could/plan to be, DM me.He has work intermittently throughout the year.
Cheers!

Sounds like an interesting opportunity. What's a typical day like? I've got some experience with personal grows, and am looking for some short term work soon.
It's a cool day usually. Starts with coffee, mandatory. Kenny gets up at the crack of dawn I swear, and he keeps that pot rolling. Feed the dogs and the goats and then probably some coffee table 70s and 80s Kenny stories while hitting the bong and eating breakfast (he feeds his workers solid meals and provides room and board, power, water, etx), then at some point he will go grab a few pounds and bring baskets and buckets and toss you the shears.
I enjoy myself. Some days might turn into a trip to Albuquerque or Santa Fe, you never know what to expect. He also grows Datura and Belladonna so some trippy brews can be concocted if you wanna experiment haha

No he isn't super picky just quick and easy nip the leaves off to the flower and chill. It's high end bud for sure, the lowend payout is due to the ranch providing meals and room/board. It's honestly a place I go to chill out just about any time of the year and even if there's no bud work he still treats it like a WWOOF ranch. Work on some shit somewhere on this property If you want to stay here type shit.

I certainly wasnt downtalking his bud. I can see he provides plenty for his trimmers. The crews my friends run are all graf kid connections and they send everything to philly, nyc, etc and if theres ANY leaf on your bud they send it back, and if you dont separate ALL the skurb / larf out into another bin you wont be asked back.

Tbh your guy sounds waaaaay more chill and a better deal lol. The graf kids usually just order hot and sweatys and call it good for food all while they bitch constantly unless shit is perfect. So tho the pay is high, so is the stress

Sounds awesome, and like the opportunity I've been looking for, for some time. Currently, I'm on the northwestern TN/KY border, but heading west in November, and could be in that area.

Lol, its super easy, have you ever bought a bag of weed? Take what they give you and make it look like that with scissors. Save all discards for extraction work. Since he is paying by weight it doesnt matter if you’re fast. So long as it looks okay.

Yeah he's pretty willing to work with people. I've worked for him before when we had little to no help and we put new guys and gals on. @Jackthereaper is pretty spot on>>it's easy to learn; not much to it really. You just get stoned and shear leaves off the flowers, save all your clippings, and you are generally free to have as much bud as you'd like for personal use. No getting out of hand of course haha nobody needs to pocket more than a half ounce a day for personal use. Save his email and keep in contact with me, DM me personal info and I'll forward it to him.

If you're in the southwest, NM area, or could/plan to be either DM me or email [email protected] for more information. He has work immediately and until likely around mid December or even later.

**update**

Thanks guys for the responses;
Got word from Kenny that he has been in contact with several people referred to him by this post, so I can only imagine some of you have been in touch with him. He has the work covered now with what looks like a pair of couples coming down from the albuquerque area?

I don't have a phone# and I don't even know Kennys phone#, so it's all email communication with an old man that voice-to-texts haha.

But yeah. Looks like for the immediate time being the work is accounted for, but keep the place in mind, whenever you're around the area. There's always work at the farm.

Back in minneapolis for a minute, possibly going to nationals? regardless hmu if you're around
Happy (very) belated Father's day to our Oogle Daddy @Matt Derrick !
Now im housed up in a suite for three days. Two bedroom, two different direction facing balconies, pet friendly, and a kitchen. Thank god for CAA coverage. Smartest thing ive done in months. Covers 600$ worth of lodging and food for 72 hours from "incident". That being my truck being inoperable. This doesnt fix the problem but holy fuck do i need this.
Holy fuck I missed being back out here. Tour’s been fucking amazing so far, and getting to see so many old friends and making some new ones has been fantastic.
Off day between Salt Lake City, UT and Reno, NV today. Gonna try to find a campsite for us tonight and I’m excited to sleep under the stars ✨
Holed up in the shop property for the third day. Fried 6 eggs and made some toast for myself and my dog. Something to spice up the dog kibble life. Poured myself the cheap rum and rootbeer drink. Buddy from the insurance/license place brought me some ice :D But there is no sunshine and rainbows. This is survival. This isnt intagram. It was dark and frustrating and cramped, with that side of lonely. Tomorrow we move.
Looking for a few people to join me in an off grid wilderness community. Have hydroelectric and small solar.
Almost died a fiery horrific death when the wiring crossed an shorted in the camper, had to jump in the water to save my dog from drowning when a current was pulling him under roots and branches (one of the most heartwrenching experiences of my life), and i fucked the engine in my truck on the mountain highways. Repairs are going to be expensive and take long. Thats kindof how my summer is going. Beats jail but just barely
Just covered about 500 mi in 12 hrs by train. Two hot as fuck IMs under a full moon. Only one stop was made...an unexpected siding in the exact place i wanted to be.
