Our 150 acre farm has been in the family for four generations. We raise Certified Naturally Grown grass finished beef, rabbit, turkey, chicken and eggs on pasture. We sell at the local farmers market, to restaurants, though a small CSA and off of the farm.

We accept HelpXers for 1 week or more. We provide 3 meals, tent camping, a friendly family atmosphere and opportunities to enjoy local Appalachian music. We expect 6 hours or work per day in exchange and offer a small stipend at the end of your stay.

Our philosophy

Focus on creating and maintaining an environment that is safe and healthy for our family, our neighbors, and our animals.

Focus on improving and maintaining soil health; promoting natural organism diversity; minimizing soil erosion and nutrient leaching.

Managing Pasture and land to improve biodiversity.

Diversify our land use, creating and maintaining different landscapes: pasture, woodland, and wetlands.

Seek practices that reuse our resources (buildings, land, equipment) for multiple purposes.

Minimize the use of external energy: fossil fuels, electricity, etc.

Avoid chemical inputs: artificial fertilizers, pesticides, medications.
