Come join our relaxed, extended family for a long visit. The farm consists of 23 secluded acres of woods and fields bordered by a river, situated outside a small town. There is a large organic vegetable/herb/berry garden and perennial beds, an orchard, chickens, 2 horses and 2 cats. I strive to practice low-input, regenerative farming and gardening techniques. No chemicals are used here.

Helper duties on the farm include gardening, pruning, mulching, and mowing (in season.) Taking care of chickens and horses. Installing and maintaining fence. Keeping wood stoves going in winter. Painting and old house maintenance if you are so inclined. There are so many jobs to choose from that helpers have their pick.

We request that helpers stay at least a month, as it takes at least a week to settle in and learn routines. There are wifi, laundry facilities, and a shared kitchen. Helpers are expected to cook some of their own meals; food is provided. This is a great position for someone who runs an online business, or spends time writing. Town is about 5 miles away and has all the amenities, plus lots of historic interest. Wayne National Forest is within easy driving distance and offers great hiking trails.
