A small homestead farm in a beautiful and quiet area of the Wild and Wonderful West Virginia mountains where the New River, Greenbrier, and Bluestone Rivers all connect. Owned by a Single Farmer with dairy goats, dairy cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, dogs and a canary named Mr. Chirpy. The day to day projects may consist of depending on the season, goats milk soap making, learn how to grow your own food, canning, harvesting, planting, daily farm chores. Learn how to raise pastured broilers, rare duck, goose, turkey and process with commercial equipment. Processing is from May - November every few weeks. You would get experience with Farmers Market on Fridays. There is something to do all day all year. Lay in the hammock and watch the amazing stars at night without the city lights. The birds even sing at night. The small town is 6 miles away. The days are full with lots to do. The river is just below the farm for fishing, hiking, swimming, site seeing within walking distance. Bluestone State Park, Pipestem State Park are within 20 min. New River Gorge, White Water Rafting within a days trip. I am a non smoker/drinker and allergic to cigarette smoke so please apply only if that works for you. I would enjoy someone that likes to cook and be a part of experimenting in the kitchen with food from the farm with what's in season. I am a happy person with a lot on my plate so I stay up late. I don't have a TV. Cell reception depends on the carrier you have. I have a land line and good internet access. Its a great life. Happy Days Ahead... Farmer Rhonda
