Our farm is looking for a resident intern for the 2018 season. Stipend, food and board and lots of learning opportunities! Come join us to engage in possibly the most meaningful work of your life.

130 acre Certified Naturally Grown farm, located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. We have animals (sheep-cattle-chickens- rabbits,3 loving dogs and a few cats), but our primary focus is on 3 acres of vegetables and small fruits.This year we plan on transition parts of our garden plots to permaculture design. There is a lot of experience one can gain here. We do a farmers market, we run a CSA, there's always something to be built so you'll do well if you're a carpenter or an engineer,or have a desire to learn these skills. We cut timber and chop wood often to stock for winter, there are awesome woods all around for hiking and nature walking, also in those woods you'll find an abundant variety of mushrooms to hunt. You will gain skills in food preservation as well as butchering of chickens and rabbits. Kathy is pretty lenient with your free time, but we all love hard workers too when there's lots to do.
To get the full benefit of the farm we would like for Helpxers to stay at least one week and will more than likely consider longer periods of time. We expect Helpxers to be involved in all aspects of the farm from planting, caring for and harvesting crops, and animal chores. Our peak time of production is April through September. We have a cabin with running water and electric. No pets are allowed and no drugs. An occasional beer or wine is acceptable.
Breakfast and lunch are on your own from the staples provided by the farm, with a family style sit down dinner.
There are several state parks nearby that offer biking, hiking and kayaking.
