We need a leader for our Community Garden this year! Come make this YOUR project!! Also, we are hosting several weddings this year! We need help getting the farm ready, from building/power washing and painting fences to moving a historic white church to the farm to trimming and landscaping. Let us know if you can help!! Come help with the bees and learn more beekeeping skills!

A National Historic Register site, the farm is a remarkably intact collection of ca. 1780-1830's outbuildings clustered around a ca. 1780 log cabin and an 1833 two-story Federal style main house surrounded by expansive lawns, gardens, orchards, pastures, gazebos and ponds located near Zebulon, North Carolina.

Spring projects include rebuilding a historic log cabin, rebuilding an old log tobacco barn, starting the garden and working with the horses and animals.

We have a large garden and a starter orchard, both of which we are considering expanding. A favorite pastime of visitors to the farm is to wander the grounds to visit the latest arrivals, from foals and chicks in the spring to honey bees to stray animals that seem to wander in and find a home on the farm. The farm also hosts champion thoroughbred horses, hunter/jumper horses & ponies, miniature donkeys, Clydesdales, several hives of honey bees, chickens, guineas, free range peacocks, black swan, dogs and cats. Goats and Texas longhorn cattle are next!

We would like to meet some folks through the HELPX network who share our commitment to preserving farm land and who can help convert our large personal garden into an organic garden with possibly a co-op or CSA program. We would prefer experience, but look primarily for a great attitude, positive personality, ability to learn, and a willingness to work with with animals, garden crops, gardening. beekeeping and landscaping.
